Crazy for Rustic Kale Pies

Crazy for Rustic Kale Pies printPrint Recipe

  • 1 package TJ's Frozen Gourmet Pie Crusts
  • 3/4 bag TJ's Kale
  • 4 tablespoons TJ's Garlic Infused Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 cup TJ's Mini Pearl Tomatoes, sliced
  • TJ's Salt and TJ's Pepper, to taste
  • 1/2-1 cup TJ's Bavarian Bratwurst (or Frozen Falafel), cut into small pieces
  • 1/2-1 cup TJ's Shaved Parmesan, Romano & Asiago Cheese
  • 1/8 cup TJ's Milk

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Defrost both pie crusts according to directions on package. In a large frying pan, heat garlic oil and add kale; add water, cover and steam, stirring occasionally for about 10-15 minutes. Add the tomatoes to the pan and continue to cook for a few more minutes (add a little more oil, if desired); season with salt and pepper. While the kale is cooking, split each pie crust in half and roll into 4 rounds of dough. Scoop kale mixture into the center of each dough round and top with desired amount of sausage (or falafel) and cheese. Fold dough up and pinch around; kale mixture will stick out of the top. Top with more cheese, if desired. Brush dough with milk. Place in oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 60 - 80 Minutes
