Sausage Turnovers - Crazy Ingredient Challenge

 A very late CIC! So so sorry to my fellow CIC folks. I was never good at time management and some issues at work really threw me off last week. It was really hard to concentrate on writing a blog post. I'm not very good at dealing with my cheese moving. Not many words from me today though. Our ingredients this month were Cinnamon and Breakfast Sausage. I had fully intended on making sausage cinnamon rolls because apparently that's a thing and I was really curious. In the end, I went with some turnovers.

 Sausage Turnovers

Half of this recipe

1 tablespoon oil
1 cup sausage, crumbled
1 cup sweet potato, diced finely
1/2 cup apples, diced finely
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Salt and pepper, to taste
Egg, for egg wash.

Make dough and leave to chill while you make the filling. It should chill for at least 2 hours.
Heat a pan with oil. Saute the sausage for about 5 minutes and then add the sweet potato. Keep cooking, stirring occasionally until the potato is tender. Add the apples, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning. Cool before using. Roll dough out about 1/8th inch thick. Cut out 3 inch circles. Place a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center of each circle. Dip a finger in water and run along the edges of the circle. Fold over and then use a fork to crimp the edges. Place the turnovers on a baking sheet. Place the turnovers in the fridge while you had the oven to 425F. When the oven is ready, beat the egg with a tablespoon of water. Brush the turnovers with the egg wash. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
