Hogs in a Blanket

Hogs in a Blanket

This was by far the most well-received snack I made for our Super Bowl gathering. It was like a 109 yard kick-off return to to a TOUCHDOWN!!! Well, maybe not that well-received…but you get the idea.

Ingredients:
1 sheet puff pastry
1 link of sausage {I used a pecan smoked link}
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup peach preserves {or your fave preserves}
1 Tablespoon water
1/4 cup mustard {I used a brown grain mustard that had a kick}

Cut the sausage link into sections as straight as possible.
Cut pastry to accomodate the size of your sausage links.
Wrap the pastry around the sausage links.

Pop in the freezer for 10 minutes, then slice and place in muffin tins.

Spread on preserves, pecans and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with mustard.

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Thaw pastry sheet.
Cut the sausage link to get it as straight as possible {I had to cut mine into a few sections because it was the kind that came in a long “u” shape.}

Because I had two long and two short links after cut, I cut my pastry sheet by cutting one third of the sections {pastry is folded to give you three “sections,” cut one of those off from the other two sections} then cut that 1/3 in half. Then, I cut the remaining 2 {1/3} sections in half to wrap around the links of sausage. Hopefully, the picture above will illustrate.

Roll the pastry around the sausage and seal pastry to itself. Pop in the freezer for 10 minutes. Slice links into about 1/2″ slices and place each slice cut side up into a muffin tin.

In a small dish combine preserves and water, stir and heat in the miocrowave for 30 seconds. Brush a small dab of the preserves mixture onto each sausage slice. Sprinkle each sausage slice evenyl with the pecans. Cook for 20-25 minutes until sausage has browned and the pastry is golden brown. Serve with mustard.
