Sausage Spinach Turnovers Recipe

One Christmas, I gave these tasty meat pies to our neighbors as gifts instead of sweets—they loved them! The handheld pies make a handy take-along lunch. I freeze the leftovers and reheat them later in the microwave when I need a quick meal. —Vicky Henry Aurora, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 loaf (16 ounces) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the spinach, cheese, mustard, marjoram, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.
  2. Divide dough into eight portions; roll each into a 6-in. circle. Spoon about 1/2 cup meat mixture on half of each circle. Brush edges with egg white; fold dough over filling and press edges with a fork to seal. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  3. Brush tops with egg white; cut slits in the top of each. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 8 turnovers.

This is really good!! I think it depends all on the type of sausage used. Instead of frozen bread dough, I used Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix and they turned out soft and yummy!!
