Savoury Turnovers

Looking for a quick and tasty snack? These Savoury Turnovers will not disappoint! The best part is, you can make a bunch on the weekend, and keep them in the freezer to whip out when you need a quick snack, or don’t have much time to make dinner.

Savoury Turnovers

I remember first making these in Home Economics class in Primary School! I used to love that class! It was so fun to make food and eat it (I obviously still hold this to be true!). I remember thinking they are super easy to make and since then I’d make them every once in a while.

These ones have the ever abundant pumpkin that is growing out of control in my garden, with some potato thrown in, and peas (I really don’t think it would be complete without them!) – a few different spices, some onion, garlic and ginger.

I used store bought pastry, but you could always make your own. Who doesn’t love the crispiness and flakiness of pastry. It just tastes so yummy!!

These Savoury Turnovers would be perfect for a dinner party appetizer. You could make them as big or small as you want. You can also mix up the ingredients – cauliflower or broccoli would be amazing in these! 💡 You could make cauliflower cheezy turnovers! 💡 Oh yum. Excuse me while I just go do that…   😛

I served these ones up with sweet chilli sauce, but relish would be equally as awesome, or just good old tomato sauce.
