Some WHOA! sas (Delicious Samosas)

Samosas
2 Med. Potatoes, boiled in Chicken Broth w/ 1 Bay Leaf (Reserve Juice)
–Broth Cubes for Boiling Potatoes
1/4c reserved Chicken Broth used to cook Potatoes (For mashing potatoes)
2 Dried Bay Leaves (1 for boiling potatoes. 1 for cooking chorizo)
1/2lb Chorizo
1/4tsp Hot Chili Oil
1/3c Frozen Peas, thawed
1/3c grated Carrot
1/3c Frozen Corn, thawed
3T Onion, minced
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/8tsp Ginger
1/4tsp Garam Masala
1/4tsp Curry
1/8tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp +1/8tsp Coriander
1/4tsp +1/8tsp Cumin
1/8 Ground Black Pepper
1tsp Dried Cilantro

Wontons *See Notes

Boil whole potatoes in chicken broth with bay leaf. (I used about 3c Water + 3 Chicken Broth Cubes, crushed). Once soft, remove potatoes. Mash potatoes, well, adding in 1/4c of leftover juice you used to boil potatoes (Broth and Bay Leaf juice).
*SEE NOTES. In skillet, add 1/4tsp hot chili oil. Add in chorizo and bay leaf. Cook til all’s browned. Add in vegis and seasons. Cook a minute or 2. Mix in mashed potatoes, heating another minute or two. Remove bay leaf.
Add a packed plump tablespoon to wonton. Seal edges. Butter spray baking dish. Add wontons, bake 375, uncovered, for 7-11 minutes. Once bottoms are cooked, or LIGHTLY browned… Broil 1 minute, to cook tops.

*Notes: Making for easier cooking- Prep the seasons first. Adding all the measured seasons to a small bowl, then sprinkle over when needed. This helps you from running all over the place, finding and measuring out everything, at time of cooking.
Phyllo Dough could be used instead of wontons. Deep frying, also an option. We use wontons and skip deep frying, thus lower calories and lower carbohydrates.

Meat Mixture *See Notes:
1 lb Sweet Italian TURKEY Sausage* (Casings Removed)
1 lb LEAN Ground Beef
1/3c Italian Bread Crumbs
1/4c TO 1/3c Parmesan Cheese (Store Shelf Kind)
1/2 Red Pepper + Sm. Onion (Both these blended in blender)
2 Eggs
3T Sauce Mixture (Below)
1/8tsp TO 1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/2tsp Dried Oregano
1/2tsp Dried Basil
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/4tsp Cajun
1/2tsp Garlic and Cheese Topper Season (Corner Market Brand-Fleet Farm)

Sauce Mixture:
1 jar Spaghetti Sauce (I used Rinaldi’s Original)
1tsp Italian Season
1 Garlic Clove, minced
1/4tsp Pepper
1/2 small can Tomato Paste (Basil Oregano Kind)
1/4tsp Red Pepper Flakes

Turkey Pepperonis
Egg Rolls (Or taco shells, cabbage leaves, hoagies, etc.)

I heated up sauce ingredients, then brought down to a simmer for a few minutes. Then, covered and set aside. Blend red pepper and onion. Mix above meat mixture. Form little logs to fit egg rolls. Roll into egg rolls with a LITTLE sprinkle of moz. cheese AND 3 pepperoni slices (Dab of water helps egg roll edges stick!). Brown each side in skillet with butter flavor cooking spray. LIGHTLY spray baking pan with cooking spray. Spread a little sauce mixture on bottom, top with egg rolls, top with more sauce, top with good amount of moz. cheese. Bake 375 for 40minutes. Last 10minutes top with Parm. Cheese (Store shelf kind) finish baking 10minutes.

*NOTES: You can try Cabbage Leaves for wraps vs. Egg Rolls. I have yet to try, but you can try Ground Turkey Meat instead of Beef. Or Any Italian Sausage instead of Turkey Italian Sausage. Regular Pepperoni instead of Turkey. Depends on how healthy you want these to be.
Original way to cook this is to form meat into patties, top with pepperonis, cook in sauce. (You can choose to brown 1st, I don’t) Top with cheese, bake til browned and top onto Texas Garlic Bread/Toast/Buns/Hoagies.  (Sometimes, I make patties stuffed with pepperoni.)
***We did not use all this meat. Extra was refrigerated for hamburgers the next night.
