"In the words of our 20 month old grandson, "oh wow"! These are so good. I used a prepared crust and a round cookie cutter to make them as appetizers. I will make them again."

"This recipe has become a staple in our household, and has impressed many guests. I use storebought pie dough cut in half, so my turnovers are shaped a little funny, but it makes them so much easier. I often make a big batch of the filling and stick it in the freezer, then I just put the turnovers together and throw them in the oven anytime I need a meal that's easy to prepare. I also add a drained can of mushrooms to mine, which makes it even better!"
