Mini Sausage Pies
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 30 min.
Very tasty dish! I was happy that these didn't stick in the pan, and the bottoms weren't soggy at all. Everyone in the family liked them (kids ages 9 and 11). I used Costco's mild Italian sausage because it's what I had on hand but otherwise followed the recipe as written.
Perfect! These were a huge hit and I had requests to make more. If you don't have a meat thermometer, it's a must in the kitchen. I left out the apricots and put in sweet potato. My husband doesn't like dried fruit.
Just my "humble" opinion -- in recipes like this using "raw" sausage or ground beef it is best to buy a good quality sausage/ground beef without "extra" fat!
The SAUSAGE MINI pies were a hit with my boys. I decided to cook and drain the sausage first before adding the rest of the ingredients, just because I thought the the pies might be too greasy if I didn't. Thank you!
Hi all! In our recipes, and I think most recipes, if we were needing the sausage to be cooked before making the recipe, we would call for the it so there isn't any question. If we just list bulk pork sausage then it's supposed to go into the recipe raw. Thanks!
Thank you Lauren. May have seemed like a dumb question but no video was posted at the time I asked my question back in 2018, and, not everyone can watch videos, in any case, depending on how the recipe is being viewed. I certainly can't, at my office! Overall question remains, why not simply say "uncooked sausage" (of beef in some cases) as part of the ingredients/instruction? It's a consistent omission in baked recipes that puzzles me.
