Flaky Sausage Foldovers

There's still time to add these quick snacks to your New Year's Eve menu, especially if you take the easy route like I did and use refrigerated pie crust.

Flaky Sausage Foldovers

1/2 pound pork breakfast sausage (regular or hot)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 15-oz can or jar of pizza sauce
1 pkg. refrigerated pie crusts, near room temperature
1 egg, beaten

Heat oven to 425°F. Brown sausage in small skillet; drain well. Stir in garlic powder. Add 1/4 cup of the pizza sauce; mix well.

Unfold 1 pie crust. With rolling pin, roll into 13-inch round. With 3-inch cutter, cut 11 rounds*. Repeat with second pie crust

Spoon about 1 teaspoon sausage mixture onto each round. Fold each in half; seal edges with fork or fingers. Cut slit in top of each with sharp knife. Place on ungreased (or parchment-lined) cookie sheet. Brush each foldover with beaten egg.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden. Meanwhile, heat remaining pizza sauce in small pan until hot. Serve warm appetizers with warm pizza sauce for dipping.

Makes 22 appetizers. *

* I was able to get 20 rounds from each crust and had plenty of filling for a total of 40 appetizers.

These are like mini cornish pasties. Which the husband would happily live off. I think I might bulk them out a bit with some veggies, potato and onion. I'd still use the tomato sauce though, because he loves the stuff.

I hope you had a lovely Christmas.
