Ingredients

  • 1 sheet store-bought puff pastry thawed
  • 1 14.5 ounce can Libby's Crispy Sauerkraut well-drained (see notes)
  • ¼ cup Russian dressing
  • 1 cup vegan sausage crumbles
  • ½ cup shredded Swiss cheese divided

Instructions

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll or press out one sheet of puff pastry to into a 9x12 inch rectangle. Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut the puff pastry into twelve 3x3 inch pieces.
  • Gently press each piece into the well of a muffin tin; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the drained sauerkraut with Russian dressing, crumbled sausage and ¼ cup of shredded cheese. Mix until well-combined.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Scoop the filling by the heaping tablespoon into each of the puff pastry cups. You may have a small amount left over.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven and sprinkle each cup with a pinch of reserved shredded cheese. Return to oven for 3-5 more minutes until the cheese is melted and the cups are puffed and golden.
  • Cool slightly, then carefully remove from muffin tin and serve warm.

Notes

  • To drain the sauerkraut, place sauerkraut in the center of a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out excess moisture or place in a fine-mesh sieve and gently press down to drain liquid.
