Recipes: Flaky Sausage Foldovers, & Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Flaky Sausage Foldovers

Recipe from Betty Crocker
From Betty’s Soul Food Collection… Good things come in small packages, like these party-pleasin’ pizza-flavored foldovers–similar to empanadas, meat-filled pastries popular in Latin America.

  • 6 ounces bulk hot pork sausage
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 can pizza sauce (15 ounces)
  • 1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
  • 1 egg, beaten

Heat oven to 425 degrees F. In 8-inch skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pork is no longer pink; drain well. Stir in garlic powder and 1/4 cup of the pizza sauce.
Remove 1 crust from pouch. On work surface, roll into 13-inch round. With 3-inch round cutter, cut 11 rounds. Repeat with second crust.
Spoon about 1 teaspoon sausage mixture onto each round. Fold each in half; seal edges with fork. Cut small slit in top of each with sharp knife. Place on ungreased large cookie sheet. Brush each foldover with beaten egg.
Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat remaining pizza sauce until hot. Serve warm appetizers with warm pizza sauce for dipping.
