  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  2. Unwrap piecrusts and roll each out to slightly thinner than original thickness. Use a 4-inch cookie cutter to cut circles out of crust; gently press each circle into bottom and up the sides of ungreased muffin cup baking pans (crust will not reach top of tin). If necessary, re-roll dough scraps to make additional dough circles.
  3. Combine cooked sausage with remaining ingredients; mix well. Spoon mixture into each crust, filling about 3/4 full.
  4. Bake 40 minutes or until crust is browned.

I've made this twice in the last two days for work events and these are TERRIFIC! Perfect for breakfast! SO TASTY! Depending on the type of salsa and sausage you use, these can potentially be fairly SPICY. I used regular on both and they still have a little bite to them. These can be made ahead the night before and then in the morning I just pop them in the oven and you're good to go! Will make again and again....

I made these the night before as another reader suggested and cooked them the next morning to bring to the office. They were gone in minutes and everyone raved about them. However, I made 22 with 2 piecrusts and I have leftover filling - I think the recipe will make around 30 or so.

This was a very tasty snack. I served these along side tomato soup. I will probably make these again!
