Hello intrepid readers, today I bring you another morsel courtesy of the Daring Cooks.
Our lovely Monkey Queen of Don’t Make Me Call My Flying Monkeys, was our May Daring Cooks’ hostess and she challenged us to dive into the world of en Croute! We were encouraged to make Beef Wellington, Stuffed Mushroom en Croute and to bring our kids into the challenge by encouraging them to create their own en Croute recipes!
First things fist, I was not overly creative with this challenge – sorry Monkey Queen. I saw some of the stuff other people were making and it looks delicious/complicated – I absolutely cannot wait to try their recipes (salmon en croute anyone?). That being said, this version of a sausage en croute is really tasty, and very simple to make. It’d be great for that night when you want the kids to help with dinner!
4 sausages (whatever kind you like, I went with a spicy andouille)
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed, cut into 6 even strips
Grab a sausage, 1 1/2 strips of dough and wrap the sausage up. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 425. Serve hot.
A Few Parting Comments:
These things were really easy and tasted great. If you’ve got little kids doing these, try cutting the strips of puff pastry really, really thin. Then they can wrap up the sausages like mummies, or do crisscrossing designs so they know which one is theirs when it come’s out of the oven.
