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.

Ingredients

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

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°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.
  • 2 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.
  • 3 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.
  • 4 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.

Expert Tips

These foldovers are similar to "empanadas," meat-filled savory pastries popular throughout Latin America. Empanadas can be stuffed with vegetables and fish; sweet empanadas are made with fruit.

Assemble the foldovers in advance and arrange them on a cookie sheet; freeze until firm. Transfer the frozen foldovers to a resealable plastic freezer bag and freeze for up to 2 months. To serve, remove the desired number from the bag and bake as directed, increasing the baking time if necessary, until golden brown.
