Spicy Sausage Rolls - A Great Party Appetizer- Perfect Party or Football Food

Are you completely partied out from Christmas?  Hang on, there’s still New Year’s to celebrate!  Like most of you, we are looking forward to some down time this week before we stay up on Thursday night to ring in 2016.  Since New Year’s Eve is a night where appetizers are commonly served, I thought I’d share a really delicious recipe, spicy sausage rolls.

 

Spicy Sausage Rolls - A Great Party Appetizer - These don't take long to make and are a great crowd pleaser.

These tasty morsels feature a sausage and onion filling with just enough spice surrounded by flaky puff pastry.  These are so tasty and Mr. SP and I devoured them in no time!

Don’t miss nine more appetizer ideas at the bottom of this post.  I’m excited to add some new recipes to my appetizer rotation.

How to Make Spicy Sausage Rolls

Pork sausage is cooked with onion, chives, garlic, basil, paprika, red pepper, salt and pepper until is is just brown.  Thawed puff pastry is rolled into a 11” x 10.5” rectangle and cut into thirds.  1/2 cup of sausage mixture is spread down each third.

Repeat with the other section of puff pastry from the box.
