Sausage and Apple Empanadas instructions

  1. Add the sage and poultry seasoning to the sausage and brown in a large cast iron skillet..
  2. Prepare your favorite fry pie dough omitting the sugars. We used a GF recipe and also tried a few in fresh made corn tortillas. Between the 2 types of dough we had enough to make 14 empanadas..
  3. Once brown chop 1 apple into 1/2 inch chucks and add to the sausage and cook until softened..
  4. Chop the 2nd apple into 1/4 inch chunks and stir into the sausage with the nutmeg-just a couple passes across a microplane is enough. Set the temp to low..
  5. Add the feta and cornstarch slurry. Then take off heat and let cool a bit so the dough can be stuffed..
  6. Heat another cast iron skillet with either shortening or your favorite oil to 350°..
  7. Roll the dough out to about 1/8 – 1/4 inch thick and cut out 6 inch rounds..
  8. Stuff each round, dab water along the edges of the round then fold in half. Crimp the edge with a fork to seal..
  9. Fry only 2-3 at a time to not drop the temp of the oil. Brown both sides the set on a wire rack to drain and keep in an oven on the lowest setting to keep warm..
  10. Serve with some breaded leek rings and try to not over eat!.
