Mini Meat Turnovers
Ingredients
  • .
  • 1 1/4  pounds  lean ground beef
  • 1 15  ounce can  tomato sauce
  • 2  teaspoons  chili powder
  • 2  teaspoons  dried oregano, crushed
  • 1  teaspoon  garlic powder
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh cilantro
  • 2 10 - 12  ounce package (20 total)  refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  •  Milk
  •  Salsa (optional)
Directions

1. For filling, in a large skillet cook ground beef until brown; drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce, chili powder, oregano, and garlic powder. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in cilantro.

2. Grease a large baking sheet; set aside. Separate biscuits; cut each biscuit in half horizontally. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of biscuit dough into a 4-inch circle. Place about 1 tablespoon filling onto half of each circle. Fold opposite side of circle up and over filling. Brush edges with a little milk; seal edges with a fork.

3. Place filled turnovers 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet; brush with milk. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheet. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve warm. If desired, serve with salsa for dipping. Makes 40 turnovers.

From the Test Kitchen
  • Cool turnovers completely on wire racks. Place in an airtight freezer container; freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat, transfer frozen turnovers to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until heated through.
To Tote:
  • Cover hot turnovers tightly. Transport in an insulated carrier.
  • If making the 40-turnover recipe, remove only one package of biscuits from the refrigerator at a time.
