Tuna Turnovers

READY IN: 30mins


  • 1
    (6 ounce) can tuna, drained
  • 1
    cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 13
    cup chopped celery
  • mayonnaise (enough to moisten)
  • 2
    teaspoons sweet pickle relish (not in orginal recipe, but that's how we like it)
  • 1
    teaspoon chives (or onion, finely chopped, I never add this actually, but if you love onions, go for it!)
  • biscuit dough (homemade or refrigerated)


  • Combine all ingredients except biscuit dough.
  • Prepare biscuit dough - or open the tube :).
  • If homemade dough, roll out to 1/8-to 1/4 inch thickness. If premade biscuit dough, flatten out each biscuit a bit - I divide them in half if they're the big fat type.
  • Cut into 4-inch squares or rounds.
  • Place about 2 1/2 T filling onto each dough piece, fold over and pinch to seal.
  • I don't bother sealing these all the way - just roll them up and pinch closed across the top. Some of the filling may sneak out the ends, but I prefer them this way.
  • Bake 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
  • To freeze: Bake as directed and allow to cool. Wrap in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer bag. Seal, pushing out as much air as possible. Label and freeze.
  • To serve: Allow to thaw in fridge or microwave. Good warm or cold.
