  • 1/2 of a 17.3 ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp. water

  • 2 cans (10 1/2 ounces each ) Campbell’s® Turkey Gravy

  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp. poultry seasoning

  • 3 cups coarsley chopped cooked turkey

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into cubes (about 3 cups)

  • 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries


  1. Thaw the pastry sheet at room temperature for 40 minutes or until it's easy to handle. Heat the oven to 375°F. Stir the egg and water with a fork in a small bowl.

  2. Stir the gravy, flour and poultry seasoning in a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate or 11 x 8-inch (2-quart) shallow baking dish. Add the turkey, sweet potatoes and cranberries and stir to coat.

  3. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the sheet into a 12 x 10-inch rectangle. Brush the baking dish edges with the egg mixture. Place the pastry over the turkey mixture. Fold over the edges 1/2 inch on all sides, pressing firmly to form a rim and flute the edges. Brush with the egg mixture. Cut several 2-inch long slits on the top.

  4. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden and filling is hot.

A lattice pattern can be created by topping the Puff Pastry with a metal cooling rack, then turning it at a right angle halfway through the baking.

When cutting Puff Pastry, the sharper the knife or pastry cutter, the better. A dull edge can cement layers together and prevent pastry from rising.

To create a tart with an extra puffy crust: take a knife and score two lines around the edge, then prick the area inside this border with a fork.

Puff Pastry can be stored in the freezer in the original packaging for up to 6 months.

"I made this for thanksgiving dinner using fresh turkey, but I was dissapointed because the crust was only on the top, not all the way around, and the recipe should say COOKED cubed sweet potatoes - mine were hard nasty raw lumps even after baking - we ate around them."
