Portuguese Chouriço/Pigs in a Blanket
These little one bite size appetizers are perfect for your next party, or anytime snack.
My preference it to use Gaspar’s Chourico or Linguica because I find it cooks better, won’t become as dry and retains more flavor in the dough. You can order online directly from their website at Gaspar’s Sausage.
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.
Ingredients: Makes about 24
2 sheets of frozen (slightly defrosted) 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 15-20 minutes until golden depending on your oven.
