Easy Baked Turkey and Cheese Pastry Ring

Diana Chan December 19, 2018 appetizer, Recipes

With the holidays, I am sure you have lots of potlucks and perhaps even hosting people in your home. Since there is so much to do, here is a quick appetizer to put together that is simple and will easily wow your friends and family.

For myself, juggling work, a social life, a food blog, and a little baby on the way, it really doesn’t leave me much time to cook up a storm, so I love making things that have few ingredients and takes 30 minutes or less.

We avoid ordering take out for our family gatherings as we like to make everything at home. It just makes everything a bit more homey and made with love.

When Grimm’s Fine Foods sent us a variety of sliced meats and cheeses, I knew I had to make a baked pastry ring since I’ve always wanted to make and eat one. They are from Langley, BC and specialize in offering high quality meat products, cheeses, tortillas, wraps and other snacks. Grimm’s Fine Foods has been around since 1951 and their integrity and commitment to quality never wavered. You can find their products at  local grocers and retailers like Buy-Low Foods, Costco, Sobeys, IGA Marketplace, Save on Foods, and many others.

Grimm’s Fine Foods has been very active in the community and is always looking for ways to give back. They let us choose a charity of our choice for them to donate $500 worth of product to a food bank or charity of our choice. I chose the Union Gospel Mission as they work hard to provide meals, education, shelter, safe and affordable housing, drug and alcohol recovery programs, and support services to those struggling with homelessness and addiction in the Metro Vancouver area and city of Mission.

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of crescent roll dough (8 rolls)
  • 1 pack of Grimm’s Fine Foods Tuscan Style Turkey Breast (150g)
  • 1 pack of Grimm’s Fine Foods Medium Cheddar Cheese, shredded (170g)
  • 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard
  • Egg wash (1 egg and a table spoon of water combined and mixed)
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 0.5 cup of marinara sauce
  • Pinch of Italian seasoning (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven till 350˚F.
  2. Prepare crescent roll dough and separate into individual triangles.
  3. Place a small bowl in the centre and arrange the triangular crescent roll dough in a ring around the bowl. Make sure the dough overlaps and has a 2 inch area to put ingredients on top.
  4. Spread dijon mustard on the crescent roll dough and layer with turkey breast slices and shredded cheddar cheese.
  5. Flip the sharp corner of the triangle until you can tuck it under the bottom of the dough and repeat until all triangles are folded.
  6. Apply your egg wash, salt + pepper and Italian seasoning on top of the pastry ring.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Serve with marinara sauce in a bowl in the centre of the pastry ring and enjoy.


With similar ingredients, you can also make ham and cheese pinwheels too with a quick swaps of a few ingredients. Since I grabbed a few more items from the store, I thought I might as well give this a try too.
