What is “en croute?”

En Croute is basically food baked in a pastry puff. Easy!

It’s pronounced “on KROOT” and it’s food (usually cheese) wrapped in pastry dough and then baked in the oven.

The dough can be an ordinary pie dough or puff pastry.

How to serve Brie en Croute

This recipe needs to be cooked at the last minute, as it needs to be served warm!

  1. Make and bake the Brie en Croute.
  2. Gather The Big Board and other food ingredients. In the center, lay down a hot pad and plate for the Brie en Croute.
  3. Start building the board around the plate, so when the appetizer comes out of the oven, you can serve it right away!

How to make Mini Sausage Onion Brie en Croute

  1. Cook the sausage pieces.
  2. Roll the puff pastry and cut into squares.
  3. Spread mustard into the center of each square. Top with onion jam, a cube of cheese, and sausage.
  4. Pinch the corners into the top center, invert, and place onto another puff pastry square. Bring the four corners up to the center and press down to seal—it’s okay if a little cheese leaks out.
  5. Place the bites onto a large parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with egg wash and bake!

Sausage and Onion Brie en Croute Board

Makes 20 bites

Ingredients

  • 2 Eckrich Smoked Sausages, cut into 20 pieces
  • ½ cup caramelized onion jam
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • Flour for dusting
  • 1 ½ Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 oz Brie cheese, cut into 20 cubes
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 tsp water

Make the board:

  • Baby carrots, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, celery sticks, cucumber slices
  • Cranberry Jalapeno Dip + Ranch dressing
  • Frito chips, pretzels, brownie bites
  • Triscuit crackers + cheese slices

Instructions

  • In a medium skillet, add 2 Tbsp olive oil and heat over medium-high. Add the sausage rounds and cook until golden—2-3 minutes per side. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry into a 10x16 rectangle; cut into 40 2-inch squares. Some of the squares will have some irregular shapes, so as you make the bites, use a rolling pin to individually roll out the squares a bit thinner and wider if they are too small to hold the fillings.
  • Spread 1/4 tsp mustard into the center of each square. Top with about 1/2 Tbsp of onion jam, a cube of cheese, and sausage. Pinch the corners into the top center, invert, and place onto another puff pastry square. Bring the four corners up to the center and press down to seal—essentially, you’re wrapping a square on the bottom and top of the fillings to ensure they stay inside (although a little cheese leaking out is fine).
  • Place the bites onto a large parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with egg wash. Bake on the center rack for 20-25 minutes until browned and golden. Serve warm.

Make the board:

  • Serve on a plate in the center of a big charcuterie board. Add the veggies, dips, chips, crackers, cheese slices and sweets aroud the plate and serve!
