Read an Excerpt

Turkey Empanadas

1 pound ground turkey

1 large onion, diced

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning mix

salt and pepper

1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese

3 cans (7 ounce each) biscuits

1 egg, beaten oil, for deep frying

Saute turkey in large frying pan over medium heat until brown, breaking up meat with fork, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer turkey to small bowl. Add onion to drippings in frying pan and saute until light brown, about 7 minutes. Return turkey and any juices to frying pan. Add tomato sauce and Cajun seasoning; simmer until mixture is almost dry, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Cool completely. Mix in cheese.

Flatten each biscuit into a 4-inch round. Place 1 tablespoon filling on round. Brush half of dough edge with egg. Fold dough over filling to create half circle and seal edges by pressing with tines of fork. Set empanada on baking sheet and cover with damp paper towel. Repeat with remaining biscuits and filling.

Pour oil to depth of 1/2 inch into heavy large frying pan. Heat oil over medium-high heat to 350 degrees. Fry empanadas in batches until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate covered with paper towels. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 30 empanadas.

This book is WONDERFUL- in fact, I love the whole series! But canned biscuits are transformed into delicious appetizers, entrees, breads and desserts in a snap. All the recipes sound amazing (the calzones, fruit pies, and shrimp newburg WERE amazing). Best of all, the book itself and the recipes inside are totally smart and affordable. Who knew canned biscuits could be so versatile?
