Course: Main Course Cuisine: American Prep Time: 20-30 min Cook Time: 20 min Servings:
Preheat the Oven/Smoker: Preheat your oven or smoker to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) to get it ready for baking the turnovers.
Prepare the Pulled Pork: If you haven’t already pre-cooked the pulled pork, now is the time to do so. Season the pulled pork generously with Big Poppa’s Sweet Money Hot and Competition Stash Seasonings, and add a dash of Granny’s BBQ Sauce to give it that signature flavor.
Make the Filling: In a bowl, combine some cream cheese with the seasoned pulled pork. Mix the ingredients thoroughly to ensure the flavors are evenly distributed.
Prepare the Puff Pastry: Take your puff pastry and cut it into squares, making sure they are large enough to hold the filling and fold over like turnovers.
Assemble the Turnovers: Place a spoonful of the pulled pork and cream cheese filling in the center of each puff pastry square. Fold the pastry over the filling, creating a turnover shape, and use a fork to firmly press and seal the edges closed.
Brush with Egg Wash: Brush the tops of the turnovers with the egg wash. This will give them a beautiful golden color and a crispy texture when baked.
Bake the Turnovers: Place the turnovers in the preheated oven/smoker and bake for about 20 minutes or until they are golden brown and cooked through. The exact cooking time may vary depending on your oven/smoker, so keep an eye on them to avoid overcooking.
Final Touch: Once the turnovers are done baking, remove them from the oven/smoker. Drizzle some of Granny’s BBQ Sauce over the top for that final touch of sweet and tangy goodness.
Serve and Enjoy: Your Big Poppa’s Pulled Pork Puff Pastry Turnovers are now ready to be served! These mouthwatering treats are best enjoyed fresh and warm. They make for a fantastic appetizer at parties, game days, or any time you’re craving a delicious snack.
