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.
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!
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.
The puff pastry is folded over with the edges pressed to seal the dough.
Each of the three strips is cut into six pieces. (I do all of my pastry work on a Roul’Pat, a nonstick mat similar to a Silpat used to line pans when baking.)
Repeat with the other section of puff pastry from the box.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until golden brown. Puffed pastry encasing spicy sausage makes a yummy combination.
Don’t think that this recipe has to be made just for an appetizer; Mr. SP and I enjoyed the leftovers reheated for breakfast.
