WHAT’S IN THESE SAVORY HAND PIES?
pork sausage patties – I used hot😉
Pillsbury Pie Crust…the raw tube kind
slice of sharp cheddar cheese – a little smaller than the sausage patty
These minis are so easy! 20 minutes assembly and 25 for cooking… and wah-la, you’re done!
STEP ONE – Remove pie crust from packaging and let sit for 10 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
STEP TWO – Brown the sausage in a skillet over medium heat until brown and not pink in the center. Drain on paper towels. (non-stick skillet preferred)
STEP THREE – Roll out cold pie crust and cut with a biscuit cutter starting from the outer perimeter of the circle. You should be able to get about to get 14 or 15 circles.
STEP FOUR – Lay sausage patty in the center of one dough disk, place the cheese on top of the patty, lay another dough disk on top of the cheese. Pinch top and bottom disks together at the seam with your hands or a fork.
STEP FIVE – Brush the tops with egg wash. (optional step)
Of course, you don’t have to use pork sausage. You can use a chicken sausage patty instead of full fat pork.
If meat isn’t your thing try the Beyond Meat, meatless products that taste almost like meat but aren’t…you know the fake stuff? Actually, what I have tried in the meatless meat department is pretty darn good!
A double cheese hand pie would be delicious. Use two kinds of cheeses for an extra bit of yum…Jalapeno Cheddar…Cheddar…Mozzerella…Jack…Colby Jack…I’m definitely making these with cheese next time, LOL!
The crust substitutions are endless and more than likely you already have a few on hand if your out of pie crust.
Yes, they sure can. Follow Steps 1 through 5 then freeze on a flat sheet for about 45 minutes. Transfer to a ziplock freezer bag and store for not more than 2 months. Unthaw for about 30 minutes at room temperature then sprinkle with Everything But the Bagel seasoning. Spray tops with spray oil and then cook as directed above.
Do these keep well in the refridgerator?
Yes! They keep very well up to about a week. Perfect for “on the go” little hand snacks! To warm up, microwave for about 30 seconds or Air Fry for about 2 minutes on 370.
