Portuguese Chouriço in a Blanket


Chouriço in a Blanket; is my take on the classic pigs in a blanket.

I made these into a wreath at Christmas and it was great hit. They’re perfect for a party, a ball game, or as a snack as well. enjoy!


1 or 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry sheets or 2 packages of crescent rolls

3/4 pound chouriço  sausage

1 beaten egg (for egg wash)



Cut the chouriço lengthwise into 2 inch strips.

Cut the puff pastry into 4 inch triangle or use 1/2 of each piece of the crescent rolls.

Start rolling chouriço inside each strip of dough starting at the larger edge.

Brush with egg wash.

Place in a parchment lined cookie sheet and cook at 375 for about 10-12 minutes until golden.

Serve with mustard dip, plain mustard, or as is.

Mustard dip:

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

1 and 1/2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard

1 tablespoons chopped chives

salt and black pepper
