Imagine a Turkey Dinner as Finger-Food

Yep - it can be done - DELICIOUSLY!!!
Tiny toast cups that taste like stuffing, filled with gravy-coated turkey bites, topped with cranberry sauce.  One or two bites that fill the mouth with everything you love about a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.  The perfect finger-food for all those holiday gatherings.
Cut crusts from square, white bread and sprinkle with Poultry Seasoning and a little black pepper.  Ease the bread squares into muffin tin(s) and press into place with a small glass.  Place in cool oven (185-200) until thoroughly dry and crispy.
While bread cups dry, mix 1 1/2 to 2 cups of chopped, cooked (preferably leftover) turkey with 1/2 jar of Roasted Turkey Gravy.  (will fill 18 bread cups)
Fill toasted bread cups with turkey/gravy mixture...
top with a little Jellied Cranberry Sauce.  Place a piece of foil lightly over the top of the pan(s) to keep toast tips from over-browning and bake 7 minutes at 300 degrees.  Remove foil and allow tips to brown slightly, about 2 minutes.  Lift cups to serving tray and enjoy.  The little cups of deliciousness are not at all messy as finger-food and the flavor is amazing.

BUT IF YOU PREFER HAM...
try this:
 Spread a can of separated Crescent Rolls with a mixture of drained Sweet Potatoes (small can) and very well drained Crushed Pineapple (small can).  Add 1 tsp. Cinnamon and mix well to form a spreadable paste.  Top mixture coated Crescents with thinly sliced ham and roll up.  Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer than  directed on can. (Mixture covers 3 cans of Crescents)  Yummy!
