Pocket Holiday Dinner
Sure, the holidays are over. But nothing says comfort food like a big turkey dinner, especially in the middle of winter. While this recipe is more prep-heavy than typical backcountry meals, it’s a heck of a lot easier than cooking a whole holiday meal at home.

About 2 (big) servings
PREP TIME / COOK TIME
5 minutes / 20 minutes
- 1 canister crescent rolls
- 2 oz freeze-dried turkey, chicken, or your favorite protein
- 2 oz freeze-dried mixed veggies (potatoes, peas, carrots, etc.)
- 1 packet powdered gravy mix
Cook the gravy according to directions, then stir in an additional 2 ounces of water.
Add the freeze dried meat and vegetables. Cook until tender, adding more water if necessary.
Remove from heat, and let cool slightly.
Lay out crescent roll triangles and scoop filling on top. Fold the dough around the filling, overlapping and enclosing the mixture within.
Cook on a preheated pan over the stove for about 5 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
