I was talking to my friend Denice from work a few weeks ago about the Dunkin family Super Bowl party and how this year I wanted something quick, easy, yummy and fun to take. The very next day at work she had brought me a recipe for a spiffed up version of pigs in a blanket, she thought this was exactly what I was looking for. I took one look at the ease of the recipe and the flavor combination and I knew it would be a big hit. My husband and I just did a test run on them for dinner and they turned out fabulous, they are so easy, flaky, flavorful and downright delish!
1 Lbs. - Sweet Italian Sausage Links (Johnsonville)
1 - Sheet Puff Pastry (thawed)
1 - Egg
2 Tbs. - Mayonnaise
2 Tbs. - Dijjonaise
¼ C. - Apricot Pineapple Jelly
Cut the sausage links into 36 half- inch slices; brown the meat on both sides in a frying pan over medium high heat. No need to fully cook at this time, all you want is to get both sides a little crispy. Set aside on a plate to cool while you get the pastry ready, lay the pastry out on your work surface then break the egg into a small dish and brush the entire surface of the pastry. Using a mini cookie cutter (I used a star) cut out 36 shapes from the pastry. Place the meat onto a baking sheet and cover each one with a piece of pastry and secure in place with a tooth pick. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 18-20 minutes. While the piggies are baking mix the jelly, mayo and mustard in a small dish, these are good served hot, warm and room temp. Dip and enjoy!

I am so making these piggies for the Super Bowl!!!
I do a lot of catering and this is a fresh new idea. Thx for sharing, mind if I use the recipe for my next function???
Those look delish and are soo cute, love it!
Those are so cute!
Wow, do these ever look simple and delicious!
That sounds like the perfect finger food!
I literally just crossed off one of my menu items for Sunday so I could replace it with these! Thanks for the last minute switch idea!
What a fantastic idea! I might have to make these for a baby shower next week :)
Awesome! just in time for Super Bowl.
Those are so cute and they'd even be cute with a circle of puffed pastry instead of a star.
how festive--love the star shapes! sausage and sweet jelly is an unexpected but delicious match--bravo!
These are amazing! How creative and delicious looking!
These are great!! And very cute!
What a great way to turn that snack into something so elegant - I love it!
So cute!! Star is one of my favorites shapes!
Great idea! I wonder... could you use egg whites and add food coloring so that you have red, white (clear), and blue stars? Or will that not work?
I made these for a July 4th wedding and they were a huge hit! Thanks for the idea.
