Sausage, Mushroom and Cheese Turnovers

Sausage, Mushroom and Cheese Turnovers

Featuring: Seven Barrels Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar and Seven Barrels Meyer Lemon Olive Oil

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Seven Barrels Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
  • ½ pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
  • ½ cup green onion, sliced (about 4 scallions)
  • ½ cup baby bella mushrooms, chopped
  • ½ cup dried cranberries or tart cherries
  • ¾ cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 eggs, beaten, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Seven Barrels Raspberry Balsamic vinegar, plus extra for dipping
  • Dash of Italian seasoning
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 package (17.25 ounce) frozen puff pastry, thawed (2 sheets)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, for garnish
  • Coarse sea salt, for garnish
  • Chopped rosemary, for garnish

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat 2 tablespoons of Seven Barrels Lemon Olive Oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook for about 5 minutes until it starts to brown, crumbling while cooking to separate the meat. Add the green onions and mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes until the veggies are soft and meat is cooked through. Drain the fat and excess liquid, set cooked mixture aside to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked sausage mixture with dried cranberries or tart cherries, ricotta, mozzarella cheese, 1 beaten egg and 1 tablespoon Seven Barrels Raspberry Balsamic vinegar to make the filling. Season with a dash of Italian seasoning, salt and freshly ground black pepper.

On lightly floured surface, roll one sheet of puff pastry into a large 12-inch square. Cut pastry sheet into 9 (4-inch) squares and brush edges with egg wash.

Place 1 rounded teaspoon filling on each square; fold to make a triangle; seal with fingers or fork. Place the triangles on parchment paper or a silicone baking mat on a large rectangular baking sheet and brush egg wash over the top of the turnovers, pierce 3 slits on top of each one, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, repeat steps above with the remaining sheet of puff pastry and sausage, mushroom and cheese filling to make 9 additional turnovers. Bake again at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Sprinkle sea salt and chopped rosemary (or thyme) on top of the turnovers for garnish. Serve immediately with Seven Barrels Raspberry Balsamic vinegar for dipping.

Makes 18 (4-inch) turnovers.

Seven Barrels Gift Box

During the season of giving, many will try to convince you it’s only the thought that counts. But we say… why not put that thought into choosing a gift that’ll actually put the rest to shame? At Seven Barrels, putting the rest to shame is what we do.

So while pondering giving—whether to others or to yourself—definitely think outside the box… but taste inside it. Inside this exclusive Seven Barrels Gift Box, that is. This four flavor collection is the perfect present to stun the connoisseur who thought they knew everything about olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and to introduce the culinary newbie to their soon-to-be foundation of cooking.

And yes… we put a lot of thought into choosing flavors that both complement each other seamlessly and stand alone as all-stars, too. 

First, the two classics: Seven Barrels Traditionale Balsamic Vinegar and Seven Barrels Miller's Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil . As far as basics go, these staples are anything but basic. They set the bar for what balsamic vinegar and olive oil should be: high enough to drink straight out of the bottle.

Second, the two dark horses: Seven Barrels Sweet Basil Extra Virgin Olive Oil, an olive oil exotic enough that you’ve likely never tasted anything like it… and yet anchored in basil—a mild herb that quietly enriches every dish. And Seven Barrels Peach Balsamic Vinegar, a velvety full-bodied blend that stretches your imagination of what balsamic vinegar could even be.

Whether grating fresh parmesan and crushed red pepper over linguini al pomodoro, or roasting shallots and apricot preserves over pork tenderloin, these four ingredients all play legendary roles in creating legendary meals.

Get ready to get obsessed with 50ml of each flavor in a beautiful gift box for only $49 with free shipping to anywhere in the US. Order by 12/15 and we’ll guarantee delivery before Christmas.

When you give a gift, don’t just make it come from the heart—make it come from the barrel… or seven.
