Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 finely chopped medium onion
1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 pound sausage
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup ketchup
1 egg
1 teaspoon water
2 tubes of refrigerated biscuits

Instructions

Brown onion and meat until no longer red. Drain off fat. Add salt, pepper and cornstarch. Stir in ketchup and cook until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and cool well. Meanwhile, heat oven to 400 degrees. In small bowl beat together egg and water. Roll or press each biscuit into a 4 inch round. Brush with the egg mixture and place a heaping tablespoon of meat mix in the center. Fold in half and press together around the edge to seal. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Brush each turn over with egg mix. Pierce the top of each with a fork or paring knife. If desired, sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds. Bake 12-15 minutes until brown. These are great for days at the park, the beach or for school lunch boxes.
