Perfect for Holidays or an occasional soiree, or even for a solo supper (depending on your appetite), this new version of pigs in a blanket is so exciting! Enjoy this recipe with the exotic taste of merguez sausages, the delicious flavours of fresh goat cheese and a fruity apricot sauce.

Ingredients for Rolls

  • 12 lamb merguez sausages, by Maillard
  • 400 g puff pastry
  • 125 to 150 g plain (or fine herbs) goat cheese
  • 1 to 2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)

Apricot Sauce

  • 1 ½ cup apricot jam
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ tsp chili flakes (optional)
  • ¼ tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a pan, over medium heat, cook the merguez sausages for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and let cool down for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix all the ingredients of the apricot sauce.
  4. Divide the puff pastry in two. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one of the halves of the dough into a 4” x 7” rectangle. On the rectangle’s width, cut 12 thin triangles of about 4” x 1”. Do the same with the other half of the puff pastry for a total of 24 triangles.
  5. Place 1 tsp (approx.) of goat cheese in each triangle’s widest part.
  6. Cut the sausages in two. Place sausage halves on each triangle, over the goat cheese.
  7. Roll each triangle around the sausages. Transfer onto a baking sheet covered with a silicon placemat or parchment paper.
  8. With a paintbrush, baste each roll with some apricot sauce. If desired, garnish with sesame seeds.
  9. Cook the rolls at the center of the oven, for 14 to 18 minutes, or until the pastry is golden-brown.
  10. Serve the merguez rolls along with the rest of the apricot sauce.
