Chicks in a Blanket

So here is the recipe for the appetizers I made for the Hollywood Bowl last week. 

My darling friend Kathryn was a pescetarian for as long as I can remember. Meaning she ate seafood but no other meats. Just recently, she has been dabbling in poultry. It's been fun cooking chicken for her!

These "chicks" in a blanket are my version of pigs in a blanket but I substituted the traditional pork sausage with chicken sausage. They were decadent and very tasty. 

Chicks in a Blanket

    •    frozen (or homemade) puff pastry dough, defrosted slightly but still very cold
    •    shredded Gruyere cheese
    •    1 large chicken sausage (I used a smoked apple chardonnay kind), cut into 8 pieces lengthwise

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly flour a smooth and clean work surface. Place your cold pastry dough down and use a 2 to 2 1/2 inch diameter round cookie cutter to cut out eight circles.
Sprinkle a little cheese onto each circle, then a piece of sausage. Fold the edges over one another and press together well to seal.
Place all of the finished pieces onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or baking mat and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Allow to cool for ten minutes before serving or you will have some burnt mouths!
