I really wanted these bites to remind people of Christmas, so I seasoned the ground turkey with sage, and added homemade cranberry sauce.  Combined with the tang of the cream cheese, and the deliciousness of the cremini mushrooms, I think these do just that.  They’re creamy and flavourful.

  1. These are fantastic! My son and I made these for Thanksgiving [we live in the US]. We did make two changes: I added a little spinach (it was frozen, but I thawed it and squeezed out the excess moisture), and we garnished with the crispy onions people put on green bean casserole. The only problem was that we loved them so much they disappeared. This is a most excellent recipe. Thank you very much! (And happy holidays!)
