Savory Sausage, Spinach, and Onion Turnovers

Cooking Light APRIL 2011

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 turnover)
  • Total:39 Minutes

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 2/3 cup diced, peeled red potatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup diced yellow onion
  • 2 (3.5-ounce) links hot chicken Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 3 cups bagged washed baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 (14.1-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add potatoes, bell pepper, and onion to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until onion begins to brown, stirring frequently. Add sausage; cook 4 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in spinach; cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Stir in basil, salt, and crushed red pepper. Remove from heat.

3. Cut dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 5-inch circle. Spoon about 1/2 cup potato mixture on half of each circle, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Fold dough over potato mixture until edges almost meet. Bring bottom edge of dough over top edge; crimp edges of dough to form a rim.

4. Place turnovers on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Combine 2 tablespoons water and egg white in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk; brush evenly over dough. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons cheese over each turnover. Bake at 400° for 18 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand at least 5 minutes before serving.
