Posh Piggies


I fell in love with these right when I saw them on Tastespotting.  It’s another easy party dish that I made for our Super Bowl party.  The fun thing is, you can mix it up and use different cookie cutter shapes depending on your theme.  I just used the star cutter because I just thought it was such a cute idea!

After reviewing this recipe again, tonight, I noticed I forgot to brush the pastry with egg-wash and it turned out just fine.  Also, I don’t have it pictured, but the mustard dip was also fantastic and easy to put together.


Posh Piggies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 18 servings

Serving Size: 2 piggies

  • 5 sweet Italian sausage links (about 1 lb), casings removed
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, mixed with 1 Tablespoon water (egg wash)
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves or jelly

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut links into 30 half-inch slices. In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook the sausage until browned and crispy. No need to fully cook at this time, as they will finish in the oven; set aside.

Spread the pastry onto a large work surface and lightly brush the top with egg wash. Using a mini cookie cutter (I used a star) cut out 36 shapes from the pastry. Line the meat onto a baking sheet and cover each one with a pastry shape and secure in place with a tooth pick. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

While the piggies are baking, make the dip. Mix the mayonnaise, mustard and apricot preserves in a small dish until fully incorporated. Serve the piggies hot, warm or at room temperature with the dip.
