Parisian Piggies in a Blanket

Krista Towns


I entered this recipe in a contest requiring few ingredients. It was inspired by the frisee salads we enjoyed in Paris with tangy, mustard cream dressings, and the wonderful sausages and breads.
You can experiment with this recipe using different sausages and sauces. Enjoy!

What a lovely take on traditional pigs in a blanket. The meat is delicious and if you can't find the French garlic sausage, I'm sure kielbasa sausage will do just fine. The puff pastry gives this a soft, crunchy texture and the creamy mustard sauce is just divine. The simple side salad with the citrus dressing is a nice addition.

Simmer and continue stirring until reduced to about 1/4 cup. Whisk in the cream. Season with salt and cook for about 3-4 minutes until the sauce is creamy and fully heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper, remove from heat and keep warm.
