Sausage Bundles

This is a recipe I created a few years ago for my husband. I make these for all of our dinner parties, but always have a few in the freezer to pull out for an amazing and delicious appetizer.

These are made ahead—it does take a few hours to make these little bundles, but making plenty in advance means less work later! Separate into portion sizes and freeze. You bake these without defrosting.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet Italian sausages
  • 2 hot Italian sausages
  • 1 small yellow onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 package frozen puff pastry sheets (thaw overnight in the refrigerator for better use)

Directions

  1. Remove the casings from the sausages.

  2. Pour a little olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the sausages and crumble while cooking using a wooden spoon.

  3. Add the onion and continue cooking until the sausage is fully cooked. Drain in a colander to remove oil, or pat dry with a kitchen towel or paper towel.

  4. Once the sausage is cooled, put it in a large bowl. Add the cheeses. Roll out the puff pastry sheets onto a floured surface, and cut each sheet into 8 rectangles. Roll out each rectangle into a 5-inch square and place the sausage mixture evenly in the middle of each pastry square.

  5. Carefully pull up and twist the ends, then pinch until sealed. Once done, freeze in a large freezer bag for at least 1 hour or up to several weeks.

  6. Place the sausage bundles on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400°F for 20 to 25 minutes. They should be golden brown.

    Enjoy immediately.
