Football Turnovers

This recipe came from Once a Month Moms again:
·         1 9-inch refrigerated pie crusts
·         1/4 pound lean ground beef
·         4 ounces pasta sauce

·         2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese, shredded


In a skillet brown ground beef until cooked through. Drain. Return to pan, add pasta sauce and simmer for 5 minutes. Allow mixture to cool.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut 4-inch circles from pie crust, rerolling dough as necessary. Top each circle with 1 tablespoon of filling and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of cheese. Moisten the edges with water and fold in half and press edges to seal. Crimp edges with a fork. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Here is what I did: I followed all the directions except I bought a tube of croissants instead of pie crust. They were already in the shape of triangles so I just scooped a little more mixture into each one and folded over and pressed edges to seal. The croissants here are delicious, light and flaky making this a delicious dinner!!!

Poor Jackson is pretty much too miserable to sit and eat, his poor bum is covered in chicken pox, so he didn't really eat any but Josh and I thought this was really good. 

Time wise it really is easy! Maybe 15 minutes of prep work and then it only took 15 minutes in the oven for the rolls I used! Yum!!!

Freezing Directions:
Do not preheat the oven, follow directions as listed above but BEFORE baking, flash freeze turnovers until solid. Once frozen, transfer turnovers to gallon freezer bags. To serve: Thaw. Bake turnovers at 375 degrees for 25 minutes until golden brown.
