Salmon Turnovers

I found this recipe several months ago but never tried it until yesterday. These salmon turnovers were delicious. Although the crescent crust is fabulous I think I am going to try to make it with my whole wheat dough, just to make it a little healthier.

Here is my version of this recipe:

Salmon Turnovers (makes 8 turnovers)
2 (6 oz)cans boneless salmon
6 oz cream cheese, softened
1 onion, chopped
1 celery stalk chopped
Salt, pepper and garlic powder
2 tubes crescent rolls

Cook onions and celery in about a tablespoon of butter on the stove top for 3 to 5 minutes.
Drain the salmon and put in a mixing bowl.
Mix together cooked onions, celery, cream cheese, seasonings and salmon (drained)
Take the crescent rolls and put two together to make a square.
Put a scoop (about 1/3 cup) of the mixture in the center of the square, then fold up the corners towards the center.
Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

I can't really take any credit for it because I got the recipe from another blogger.
And now that you know how to leave comments, I expect to see lots of them from you :-)
