Chicken Sausage & Sage Hand Pies

These little pies are so easy to make and taste delicious!  If you use low-fat crescent rolls, they are pretty low in calories too!  Give it a try!

What you need:

  • 1 pound of chicken breast breakfast sausage
  • 18 fresh sage leaves
  • 6 Tablespoons of butter
  • 3 packages of crescent rolls
  • 1 ½ teaspoon dried, rubbed sage
  • 1 ½ teaspoon chopped, fresh parsley
  • 6 butter leaves (cut cold butter with a miniature leaf-shaped cookie cutter)

 

How to Do it:

Crumble the sausage in a hot skillet and begin browning.

Cut 8 sage leaves into ribbons and

add to the sausage while it’s browning.  Remove from the heat.

Set the sausage aside, but don’t wash the pan, add 4 more sage leaves and 3 Tablespoons of butter to the pan.

Heat, scraping until all the little bits come loose.  Remove the leaves from the pan.  Stir in the cooked sausage.

Place a couple spoonfuls onto each of 6 crescent dough triangles.

 

 

 

 

 

Carefully cover with a second triangle and seal the edges well.  Place on a baking sheet.

Melt the remaining 3 Tablespoons of butter with the rubbed sage.  After it is totally melted, stir in the parsley.  Brush the mixture onto the top of each of the pies.  Place a single leaf on each and

bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until the dough is golden brown.

Serve with a leaf-shaped pat of butter.
