Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
- Turkey - Both white meat and dark meat work in the following recipe, but you don't have to wait until after Thanksgiving to enjoy this recipe! Chicken is a great substitute for turkey! Ground turkey is not a good substitute, however.
- Crescent Rolls -The Pillsbury 50% larger crescent rolls work best for this recipe; however, if you are unable to find those ones, the regular-sized crescent rolls work as well. You will just need to lessen the amount of filling per roll.
- Butter - Both unsalted butter and salted butter work great!
- Cream of Chicken Soup - The cream of chicken soup is used as a sauce for this recipe. You could substitute a homemade version or ever leftover turkey gravy if you prefer.
How to Make Step-by-Step Instructions
- Start by opening and carefully unrolling the crescent rolls on your work surface. This will allow them to warm up a bit before you roll the filling into them. It is more difficult to work with cold crescent rolls.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (unless you're making these for later).
- In a large bowl, mix the cooked chopped-up turkey with softened cream cheese and butter. Set aside.
- Heat a small saucepan over medium heat.
- Sauté the mushrooms in a little bit of butter or olive oil.
- Once the mushrooms begin to soften, add the green onions.
- Sauté until the mushrooms are mostly cooked through.
- Remove from the heat and mix into the turkey mixture.
- Scoop approximately ¼ cup of filling onto the large end of each crescent roll.
- Pull the top two corners toward the filling and roll the crescent roll up.
- Lightly press along all the seams to seal in the filling.
- Line a 9x13 baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
- Place the turkey rolls on the prepared pan.
- You can space them or place them right next to each other. Either way is fine.
- If you're making these to bake later, cover the pan with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you're ready to bake them.
- Otherwise, bake them in the preheated oven (350 degrees) for 15-20 minutes. The tops of the rolls should be golden brown.
- Just before they're finished baking, dump the cream of chicken soup into a microwave-safe bowl.
- Whisk in ½ can of milk per can of cream of chicken soup you use.
- Heat carefully in the microwave until hot.
- Serve as a gravy or sauce over the baked turkey rolls.
Yes, you can freeze these unbaked. It's best to thaw them in the fridge before baking, though.

- Open and unroll the crescent rolls to let them warm up a bit before trying to roll them up.
- In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, butter, and chopped-up turkey or chicken. Set aside.
- Saute the mushrooms in a little bit of butter or oil until they are almost done, and add the green onions. Continue to saute until the mushrooms are done. Dump into the turkey or chicken mixture and mix well.
