    4. Place a sausage slice on one puff pastry sheet strip and wrap the sheet around the sausage just once or max 1 and 1/2 turns and then cut the ends. Repeat the same with remaining strips and sausage slices. Place on a tray (which can fit in refrigerator) lined with aluminum foil and place in refrigerator while you work on other half of the puff pastry sheet.
    Additional Notes
    In order to keep Sausage Pin Wheels small in size, I have just wrapped puff pastry sheet around sausage only one and a half times. However, if you like big wheels, you can repeat the sheet a couple of times.

    5. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil or silicon sheet. Once all sausage are wrapped, place sausage discs on the sheet a little distance apart to give room for rising and expansion.

  3. Hi Sonal, thanks for stopping by. It's always fun to host party for kids. You can serve few crackers, new cheetos mix and big bowl of popcorn (kids love popcorn and cheetos) I recently hosted a kid bday bash and ordered Snack of the month from Snack Club of thepopcornfactory.com. They have a different signature treat each month and it was a great hit, kids loved it and so did the adults. Have a good time!!!
  4. Hi ChefDeHome, I love you blog. Can you suggest some ready party snacks for a bday party to go along with these homemade chicken pin wheels, I am hosting birthday party for my brother's son next month and looking for good ideas to entertain kids. thanks.
  5. Hi Ridha, this recipe works perfect with sausage however if you do not like sausage, then try using Vegan Sausage or sliced smoked ham.
