1 pound Tarantino’s breakfast sausage links, casings removed
1 small red onion, julienned
1 medium apple, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cups halved red seedless grapes
1 pound puff pastry ( 2 sheets)
8 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 egg, beaten
1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, sauté sausage, breaking up
the meat to brown evenly. Remove from the pan to a large bowl.
3. In the same pan, sauté onions until softened. Add apples and sauté
for 2 minutes. Add grapes and heat through. Combine sautéed onions
and fruit with the sausage. Set aside to cool.
4. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each sheet of pastry to
measure 14 by 14 inches. Cut each sheet of pastry into 4 equal squares.
Divide the filling and shredded cheese evenly among the 8 pastry
squares. Fold in half to form a triangle and crimp the edges with a fork.
Brush with beaten egg.
5. Bake the turnovers on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 20 minutes,
or until golden brown. Serve warm. Makes 8 servings.
