These little bites of spicy yumminess are a perfect pick up on a winter evening.  Pair these with your favorite single malt scotch in front of the fire. They are also a yummy combo with beer or champagne.

Gourmaise Mini Sausage Rolls

(Freeze rolls for two hours before baking.)

Recipe makes 32 mini rolls

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray baking sheet lightly with vegetable oil spray.

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

1/2 cup Boar’s Head brand Peppercorn Gourmaise (mustard mayo blend with black, white, pink and green peppercorns)

Spread the Gourmaise evenly over the puff pastry.

Evenly distribute the cooked and crumbled sausage over the Gourmaise.  Cut the pastry into 4 vertical pieces.

Roll each fourth into a “cigar” with puff pastry overlapping. Seal by pressing the dough together with fingers.  If dough gets sticky  put a bit of flour on fingers.  Cut each cigar in half and then cut each half in four pieces.

Place sausage rolls in freezer containers. Separate layers of sausage rolls with waxed paper. Freeze for 2 hours.  (Sausage rolls can be frozen for up to two weeks.) When ready to serve, remove sausage rolls from freezer container and place rolls seam side down on baking sheet that has been sprayed lightly with vegetable oil spray in preheated 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for twenty minutes or until the tops of the rolls are just beginning to brown and the bottoms are brown and crispy. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving warm.



My hometown, Roanoke, Virginia is having record-breaking warm weather this winter. My daffodils are popping up their little green heads in my garden.


  How to find a bit of chill this winter ~ a Snowflake drink! For each drink:

Place martini glass in freezer to chill the glass

1 ounce Creme de Cocao liqueur

1 ounce Frangelico

1 ounce vodka

2 ounces half and half

Maraschino cherries with stems for garnish

Place all ingredients except cherries in cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Add a little of the crushed ice into the drink to make it even more “snowy and frothy”. Strain into chilled martini glass.   Garnish with maraschino cherries.
