Bacon, Potato, and Leek Turnovers

Howard L. Puckett
Yield 12 servings (serving size: 1 turnover)
With a filling of mashed potatoes, bacon, chives, and cheese, these pies taste like a stuffed baked potato. They make a great accompaniment to steak and broccoli rabe.

  • 2 cups chopped leek
  • 3/4 cup water

How to Make It

  1. Combine potato, chopped leek, and 3/4 cup water in a microwave-safe pie plate or bowl; lightly cover with wax paper. Microwave at high 8 minutes or until tender, stirring every 3 minutes. Coarsely mash mixture with a fork. Stir in chives and the next 5 ingredients (through bacon). Cool slightly.

  2. Preheat oven to 425°.

  3. Place the Savory Cornmeal-Whole Wheat Dough circles on a lightly floured surface. Spoon 1/4 cup potato mixture into center of each dough circle. Fold dough over filling; press edges together with a fork or fingers to seal. Place turnovers on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pierce top of each turnover once with a fork. Bake at 425° for 17 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
