Portuguese Chouriço/Pigs in a Blanket

Chouriço in a Blanket; is my take on the classic pigs in a blanket. You can use either puff pastry dough or crescent roll dough.

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.
