Disco Party

I had a disco party last weekend.

And although we do actually own a mirrored disco ball (rumored to be an actual relic from the now defunct “Palace nightclub” in Saugus, MA!) it wasn’t that kind of party. It was the kind that uses the frozen dough rounds called discos from brands like Goya and LeFey. You find them in the freezer section and you can make instant little savory empanadas or delicious little hand-pies with them.

I made both that day.

Savory filling on the left: 1/4 lb of ground lamb with 1 small sweet Italian sausage crumbled, browned and cooled. 1 tiny jar (5oz) of pumpkin butter, 1 tablespoon of dried, rubbed sage and 1 can (15.5oz) of black beans, drained and rinsed. Pulse it in the Cuisinart and fill 7 discos, seal, bake and devour.

Sweet filling on the right: 1 small package (6oz) of blackberries, 6 teaspoons of brown sugar, 3 teaspoons of salted butter – divide 3 ingredients equally between 3 discos, seal, bake and devour.

Discos make fun “game day” food!

      Definitely do look for them… I like the LeFey brand best as the ingredients list is “shorter” than Goya. (meaning less unnatural ingredients) I get them at Market Basket but they are usually in the freezer section hiding somewhere in most stores.
      These are great to keep in the freezer and can be used for sweet or savory recipes in an instant! A search on http://www.theperfectpantry.com will yield several recipes and she was the one that turned me on to these little beauties!
