  • “Forgive the snobby remarks and enjoy this tasty, easy replica of a classic. Just because something isn’t made in a traditional way, it shouldn’t be judged in a condescending way.”

  • “My Husband and I loved this recipe.We used leftover thanksgiving turkey, dressing and turkey gravy. It was delicious ! Thank you for the recipe.”

  • “We LOVED this recipe! I prepared it slightly different by putting it in a pie dish with puff pastry on top and bottom. Served with gravy and a salad. Fantastic! Thanks so much Carla!”

  • “Totally yum, pretty & fast! Perfect for serving letovers to friends who pop in w/o them looking like “leftovers” (our favorite this time of year!) Thanks for a keeper – from back in the day (LOL)”

  • “What an excellent meal for two people using the remaining ingredients from a holiday dinner!”

  • “I assume you called this a ‘Wellington’ because it used pastry. However a ‘Turkey Wellington’ would involve an uncooked turkey breast filet, topped with a pate possibly made of mushrooms or equivalent and then basically roasted in the oven in a pastry crust. What you have here sounds very tasty but is actually what they call a ‘pasty’ not a Wellington.”

  • “I forgot to mention, I was a bit confused by the directions with regards to the number of puff pastry sheet.One box of the sheets has two in it and they are quite large.But the servings state 4 sheets for 2 servings.So I just used one box of two sheets and made four individual pockets.”
