    Italian Sausage Empanadas

    1/2 lb. bulk Italian sausage
    1 (14.5-oz.) can pizza sauce
    1 (12-oz.) can Hungry Jack Refrigerated Flaky Biscuits
    4 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
    1 egg, beaten

    Brown sausage, in large skillet over medium heat; drain. Stir in 3 tablespoons of the pizza sauce; set remaining pizza sauce aside.

    Heat oven to 375 F. Separate dough into 10 biscuits; divide each in half horizontally, forming 20 rounds. Press or roll each into 4-inch round.

    Place 1 tablespoon sausage mixture in center of each round. Top each with cheese; press lightly. Fold dough over filling to form half circle, stretching to fit. Press edges together; seal and prick top with fork. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Brush with beaten egg.

    Bake at 375 F. for 9 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.

    Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat remaining pizza sauce over low heat until hot. Serve warm empanadas with pizza sauce for dipping.
