- 2 ea. chicken or turkey sausages, casings removed, minced
- 1 ea. store-bought puff pastry dough
- 1 ea. Avocados From Mexico
- 3/4 c. mozzarella, grated
- 1 ea. small onion, diced
- 1 ea. garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 ea. small butternut squash, peeled and cut into small cubes
- 1 T. vegetable oil
- 1/2 t. dried thyme
- Pinch salt and pepper
- Pinch cayenne pepper
- Heat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pan on medium-high heat. Add onion and butternut squash. Stir to combine and add a pinch of salt, freshly ground pepper and dried thyme. Continue cooking until onion is softened and squash is tender when pierced with a fork.
- Add the minced sausage meat and garlic to butternut squash and onion mixture. Cook while stirring until all of the sausage meat is no longer pink and is cooked through. Set aside and let cool to room temperature.
- In a bowl, combine avocado, mozzarella, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Mix well until avocado is almost smooth.
- Cut your sheet of puff pastry into four matching squares. Spoon approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of avocado mixture onto 1 square of puff pastry, spreading it around, but leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with two heaping tablespoons of cooled meat mixture.
- Fold square into a triangle and using a fork, crimp the edges of your puff pastry by pressing down around the edge. Using a paring knife or kitchen scissors, snip two little vents on top of each pastry parcel and set all four completed parcels on your baking sheet. Bake at 350° F for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.
- Evenly distribute avocado mixture into 4 bowls and serve with puff pastry.
