The ideas and recipes are flowing in. Norma Bates contributes Thanksgiving Pizza to the mix. It appears to be a delightful, quick-and-easy application.
Meanwhile, Linda Stutesman with the Midwest Dairy Council has dreamed up a Turkey and Cheddar Roll... it's made from puff pastry and has apples in it. Sounds good to me.

Turkey and Cheddar Roll
Preparation Time: 7 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
•1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed slightly
•4 to 6 slices of leftover or deli turkey
•½ Granny Smith apple, peeled and thinly sliced
•½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
•1 tablespoon butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350°F. Unfold puff pastry onto a cookie sheet or jellyroll pan. Lay pieces of meat on pastry followed by the apple, and put some cheddar cheese on it. Leave a bit of the edge uncovered. Roll pastry into a log, and finish with seam side down on cookie sheet. Pinch seam and ends to seal. Brush with melted butter. Place in oven, and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until top is golden and cheese is melted. Allow to cool slightly (3 to 4 minutes), and slice with a serrated knife. Eat immediately.
