Blood Sausage Pasties with Pear and Port Wine Jam

Hoje para Jantar

These pastries are filled with blood sausage and a dollop of pear and port jam, which you will need to prepare before getting started. Or, if you prefer, you can buy a high-quality flavorful jam instead of making it yourself; pear jam, quince jam, or fig jam would all pair perfectly with the robust sausage. Puff pastry is a convenient shortcut and bakes up flaky and golden and buttery good.


  • 1 sheet puff pastry (fresh)
  • pear
  • jam
  • 1/2 blood sausage

  5. Beat the egg yolk and brush the smaller stars.
  6. Gently place the smaller stars on top of the jam with the yolk up.
  7. Slice the figs and place a slice on top of each puff.
  8. Bake for about 5 minutes, until the stars puff up.
  9. Remove from oven and insert a toothpick to straighten the various layers.
