Who is ready for the holidays? I know I am! For me, the end of the year is all about small bites. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are all perfect excuses to eat copious amounts of appetizers and call it dinner. :)

And one of my favorite small bite appetizers are these adorable kielbasa puffs! 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. They are definitely crowd pleasers! Because, spoiler alert, they taste like gourmet pigs in a blanket! :) No surprise there. Enjoy!

How to make this easy kielbasa appetizer

Step 1: Slice the kielbasa

Using a sharp knife, cut the kielbasa into 36 slices. Mine were all about a half-inch wide. Set aside.

Step 2: Cut the puff pastry 

Lightly dust flour on a work surface. Unfold one sheet of puff pastry 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.

Step 3: Wrap the sausage in puff pastry dough 

Wrap each kielbasa slice 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.

Optional: 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.

Step 4: Bake in oven 

Arrange the puffs on a greased baking sheet, at least 1 inch apart. Bake at 400°F for about 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 5: Serve and enjoy! 

Serve with mustard, BBQ sauce, ranch or dipping sauce of preference. Enjoy!
