Kielbasa Wrapped in Puff Pastry

This kielbasa appetizer is as easy as it gets! We’re talking 2 ingredients here, people. Just slice up a sausage and roll it some puff pastry and you’re done! Dip it in some mustard to keep it simple, or ranch, or BBQ sauce, or whatever you like.

This recipe would be good to make for any party where you need a last minute appetizer. Whether you’re celebrating the holidays, game day or any get-together, they are definitely crowd pleasers! Because, spoiler alert, they taste like gourmet pigs in a blanket! :) No surprise there.

Kielbasa puffs are my favorite small bite appetizer and are great for when you’re in a pinch. It’s the perfect recipe to have in your back pocket!

How to Make this Easy Kielbasa Appetizer

  • Slice the kielbasa. Using a sharp knife, cut the kielbasa into 36 slices. Mine were all about a half-inch wide. Set aside.
  • Cut the puff pastry. Lightly dust flour on a work surface. Unfold one of the puff pastry sheets onto the flour. Roll a couple times each way with a rolling pin to smooth it out. Use a knife or pizza cutter to slice the dough in half vertically. Then slice horizontally to make 18 strips total in the shape of rectangles.
  • Wrap the puffs. Wrap each piece of sausage in one strip of dough and pinch to seal. You can secure with a toothpick if you want, but it’s not necessary. It is convenient for serving though. Repeat with the other sheet of dough and the last half of the kielbasa.
  • Bake in oven. Arrange the puffs on a greased baking sheet seam side down, at least 1 inch apart. Bake at 400°F for about 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Optional Egg Wash

If you want to do an egg wash, combine 1 beaten egg with 1 Tablespoon water and brush each puff with the mixture. This will make them shiny.

Favorite Dipping Sauces

Don’t forget the dipping sauce! These kielbasa puffs taste delicious dipped in any of the options below.

Preparing in Advance

This kielbasa puff pastry appetizer is easy to prepare in advance and then bake right before serving. Just wrap the sausage in the puff pastry, place on a cookie sheet and then cover with foil. Store in the refrigerator until ready to bake. Then bake according to directions.

Variations

  • You can swap the puff pastry for crescent rolls if you prefer.
  • Feel free to sprinkle on some seasonings after brushing on the egg wash. Garlic powder and grated parmesan add delicious flavor.
  • Instead of sliced kielbasa, you may also use a package of little smokies or your favorite cooked chicken sausage.
