Bacon Onion Turnovers
These are as good as they sound!
Eat a few or eat a lot! They are just fantastic little portable pockets of love.
I found these gems on Taste of Home many years ago and have been making them ever since.
Bacon Onion Turnovers – adapted from Taste of Home
3 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
1/2 cup of warm water – 110 – 115 degrees
1 cup of warm milk – 110 – 115 degrees
1/2 cup of butter – melted
2 teaspoons of salt
3 1/2 to 4 cups of flour
1 pound of bacon, sliced, cooked and crumbled
1 large white onion – diced
pepper to season
1 egg – lightly beaten
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter and salt; beat until smooth. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divided into 30 pieces. Roll each into a 4-in. circle.
Combine bacon and onion; place about 2 teaspoons on one side of each circle. Fold dough over filling; press edges with a fork to seal. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes.
Brush with egg. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.Pin ItShare on Facebook
