Turkey & Broccoli Braid Recipe

Leftovers are a staple in our household but eating the same thing over and over again can get boring. With the holidays here, leftovers are bound to be in abundance. I have started going thru my favorite recipes to find new ways to freshen up those leftovers. Tonight, I too one of my favorite recipes and mixed it up to use up leftover turkey. The best part is no one needs to know it came from leftovers and makes a great dish to pass at your next potluck.


  • 2 packages Great Value crescent rolls
  • 3 cups left over turkey (chopped into small pieces)
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tsp Dill seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg white, slightly beaten

1. Preheat oven to 375*.

2. Combine chopped turkey, broccoli, onion, mayonnaise, dill, salt and garlic powder in large bow (making sure to mix together very well.)

3. Unroll first package of Great Value crescent rolls being careful not to separate. Arrange the longest side of Great Value crescent rolls along the width of a rectangle baking sheet. Repeat with remaining package of crescent rolls.

4. Using dough/pizza roller, roll over crescent rolls to seal all perforations. On the longest sides, cut dough into strips 1 1/2 inches apart and 3 inches deep. This will leave 6 inches in the center to put the filling.

5. Spread filling into the center.

6. To braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip one turn. Repeat down the length of the dough. I had an extra piece of crescent roll left and created a cute bow for the middle.

7. Brush egg white over the Great Value crescent rolls.

8. Bake for 25-28 minutes.

Hi I’m Gwendolyn and I have been a stay at home mom since 2009. I have been with my husband, James, for 10 years and we are proud parents of Jayme (8) and Nicholas (13). We are also parents to 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters, and a snake. My father-in-law lives with us so it is always non-stop at our house. I had the honor of becoming a step-parent when I got married and have a great relationship with my step-son. I always used coupons and shopped for bargains but was forced to step up my game when my husband was disabled in 2005. I get an incredible rush from saving money and finding great deals. My life is a constant journey and I look forward to sharing it with you all.
