Epiphany Star Appetizers

The wise men were guided to the baby Jesus by following the star they saw in the East, so the five-pointed or Epiphany star is a common symbol of the feast.  Let these fun, and simple to prepare, sausage and puff pastry appetizers guide the way for a fun Epiphany treat to celebrate the day. 

Epiphany Star Appetizers
  • 1 lb. mild/sweet Italian sausage links
  • 1/2 sheet Puff Pastry (thawed)
  • 1 egg
Cut the sausage links into 36 slices, approx. 3/8 inch. Brown the meat on both sides in a frying pan over medium heat. No need to fully cook as it will cook in oven. Set aside on a plate to cool while you get the pastry ready.

Lay the pastry out on work surface. Whisk egg in small dish and brush the surface of the pastry with mixed egg. Using a mini star cookie cutter, cut out 36 star shapes from the pastry. 

Place the meat onto a baking sheet and cover each one with a star of pastry and secure with a toothpick. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.

  1. Oh fun! I would use star-shaped pineapple though to make it a little healthier (and gluten-free which we need here at this house).
