The great thing about this recipe is that you could essentially put any leftover meat and veggies in the turnover which is a great way to reduce wasted leftovers. And an interesting thing about these turnovers is that the pastry part is biscuit dough instead of the usual pie crust. Biscuit dough uses less shortening/butter than pie crust, so if you're looking to save fat for rationing purposes, this is a good idea.
Once again, a nice easy recipe with simple ingredients: leftover ham, dill relish, mustard, and milk. That's it! I doubled the recipe because I wanted to freeze leftovers. (And just for kicks, I made a few ham and cheese ones as well and they were awesome!)

Fill the squares with the ham filling, fold over into triangles, moisten the edges and seal. Easier said than done, let me tell you! If the dough is too soft you might need to chill it for an hour before working with it.

|Yes, the ham poked a hole and I was lazy about sealing the edges... Haha!|
