Happy Friday All:)
Hope everyone had a good week. I normally do a food post during the week, but I had a better offer other than cooking yesterday, so off I went galavanting around the town for a couple of hours !! Today I 'm sharing a recipe for these gorgeous cheesy Sausage Empanadas. I came across it as a promotion for the Easy Food magazine and it sounded very tempting as a lunch option!
150g cheddar grated
2 spring onions chopped
handful of fresh thyme chopped
2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
1 egg beaten for glazing
1 tsp chilli powder
salsa or dip of choice to serve
Preheat the oven to 180c
Remove the sausages from casing and mix in a bowl with the diced spring onions. Fry on a pan until cooked through. Drain fat and mix in a bowl with the grated cheese and thyme. Roll out the puff pastry on a board and cut each sheet into 30cm squares (mine were very roughly measured and some even ended up as rolls!) Place a spoonful of the mixture into the middle of each ,brush the edges with your egg and fold over the pastry into a triangle.
Press the edges together with a fork to seal.
Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 20 mins until puffed and golden brown...
Serve warm with salad and dips of choice! Have to say they went down very well with my gang here ... a great standby for after school or college snacks!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend:) I 'm not going anywhere in particular myself, but I'm sure I will find a lot of bits to do around here to keep me busy!
