|Chorizo in Puff Pastry
Chorizo is a type of Spanish sausage, and let me tell you, it’s nothing like Jimmy Dean. Go to the fancy grocer in town and buy chorizo and frozen puff pastry. You’ll feel like a chef, I’m telling you. And your carnivore friends will love you.
1/2 lb. chorizo
Season chorizo with salt and pepper, and brown it for about five minutes in a medium saucepan. Don’t cook it thoroughly – just enough to lose the redness. Meanwhile, defrost pastry according to package directions. Roll out pastry and cut into two-inch squares. Place about one tablespoon of chorizo in each square, and roll into a sausage shape. Place squares on ungreased cookie sheet, brushing tops with egg. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit five to six minutes, or until puffs are golden brown. Eat immediately.
