Cajun Sausage Puffs with Whiskey Mustard Sauce
1 package frozen puff pastry sheets
1 Tbsp flour
8 hot-dog-size, fully cooked smoked Andouille sausages
1 egg, beaten
Whiskey Mustard Sauce
1 Tbsp Jack Daniel Tennessee Whiskey
1 cup Creole or grainy Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp honey
Thaw pastry sheets at room temperature for 40 minutes.
Unfold pastry, lightly dust both sides with flour and place on parchment sheet on counter. Using a pizza wheel, cut pastry crosswise into 16 ( ½ inch wide) strips. Start spiraling a pastry strip around a sausage, without overlapping the pastry. When you come to the end of the first strip, start a second (press ends together) and continue wrapping until sausage is covered. Wrap remaining sausages.
Evenly space sausages on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate one hour (or up to 2 days, covered) before baking.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Brush pastries with beaten egg. Bake until puffed and golden, 22 to 25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut each pastry into rounds and skewer with a toothpick. Serve with Whiskey Mustard Sauce.
Whisk together whiskey, mustard and honey. Can be made ahead and kept at room temperature.
