Puff pastry rolls with chorizo and sun-dried tomatoes

20 servings; 15 min preparation, 20 min baking

Cooking with puff pastry could be very versatile and relatively easy to work with. You can make delicious savoury dishes, as well as fluffy sweet deserts. The only thing you should remember is to keep your dough cold, otherwise it gets soft and messy. If you best friends calls you in the middle of cooking, just put the dough back in your fridge. You will thank me later!

These puff pastry rolls are a nice side dish if you have drinks with friends or you want easy snacks to accompany your cocktail party. They are easy to make and if you forget any of the ingredients, don’t worry about it. They will taste as good if not better if you improvise. The only problem will be that they will finish very fast and your guests will ask for more.

If you prefer to make your own puff pastry, please do. It will be more time-consuming, but it will taste great. If you don’t have a lot of time or your kitchen is not suitable to make your own dough, just check in your supermarket.
