    • 1 Tbsp salt

    Instructions

    Directions

      Filling

      • Combine beef and sausage, onions, and seasoning in skillet and brown. Do not over cook.
      • Sift flour over meat. Stir in and continue to brown. The flour will bind the meat together.
      • Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
      • Roll 1/3 of dough at a time onto floured surfaced. Cut into 4in. circles.
      • Spoon filling on one side of the dough circles. With a little water on your forefinger, lightly wet edges of the circles, fold over and crimp edges with a damp fork.
      • Deep fry at 375 degrees until golden brown.

      Crust

      • Sift flour into a large mixing bowl. Cut shortening into flour until it looks mealy.
      • Add egg and milk. Combine to form dough.
      • Knead and form dough into a ball. Dough is best when somewhat firm. If needed, chill the dough.
      • Place dough ball in bowl and cover until needed.
