If you are one who seeks out pigs and a blanket whenever you attend a get together or you are that individual that always brings them, then you will love this recipe! Flaky pastry puff stuffed with little chicken apple gouda sausages, then topped with a parmesan cheese, poppy seed mixture that gets pressed into the dough and garnished with a fresh jalapeno slice. Bake them to golden perfection and they become little poppers that make for the perfect appetizer and definitely ups your appetizer ante.
Let’s talk about the chicken sausage. So, this recipe is great because it can be such a versatile recipe. I used amylu’s brand and they have a variety of types and flavors of chicken sausage. I choose apple and gouda because it pairs well with the other flavors of parmesan cheese, jalapeno and poppy seeds. But, feel free to improvise if there are any other flavors you might gravitate towards. Another great thing about them is that the sausages can be cooked ahead of time and kept in the fridge until ready to cut, wrap and bake. One last thing about the sausages, is when cutting them, I cut them in 4ths. But, if you want them to be a tad bit smaller, feel free to cut them into 5ths or 6ths.
I know that some people are super saucy people and others are plain janes, So, I brag about how flavorful these are and I love enjoying them on their own. But, it won’t hurt to dip them in bbq sauce, ketchup or your sauce of choice. You can’t go wrong either way!
A slightly elevated and a slightly sophisticated take on our childhood favorite, that everyone will love…this is one you do not want to miss!
