Avocado, Goat Cheese and Sausage Puff Pastry Pockets

As Zach and I prepare to move, I keep coming to the realization that I have an insane amount of work to do. If there is one thing I hate in this world (besides my piece of crap electric stove), it’s packing and moving…oh and unpacking. I hate that too. Since we are about a month away from the big day, I thought I’d get a head start on things. I’m actually making pretty good progress (which is awesome), but then I got to the kitchen; and I seriously wanted to cry. I’ve made it my personal goal to clear everything out of my pantry, fridge and freezer before we move (so that I can start fresh with my stock when we are all moved in at the new place). As I was digging through the bottomless pit that is my freezer, I came across, I’m not kidding you, 4 boxes of puff pastry. How I stocked up on 4 boxes is beyond my realm of thinking. The stuff isn’t cheap by any means! So, here is just the first of many recipes that will involve puff pastry in the next month. I stuffed these puff pastry pockets with everything that was on the verge of needing to be tossed: avocado, goat cheese, sausage and salsa. Puff pastry pockets are the absolute perfect appetizer for a quick dinner party/get together. Especially when you use pre-made puff pastry, this snack is one of the simplest you will make. You can stuff them with just about anything and everything. They can be sweet, savory or sweet AND savory! So get creative and get cooking!






Beer Love:

Beer: Wynkoop’s Silverback Pale Ale
Brewed By: Wynkoop Brewing
Style: American Pale Ale
ABV: 5.5%
Description: If you haven’t yet noticed, I really like pale ales with avocado. It’s one of my number 1 go-to pairings. There are a lot of robust flavors going on in this pocket with the tanginess of the goat cheese, the smoothness of the avocado and the spiciness of the salsa, so I felt that a mildly hopped brew would go perfectly. This pale ale was the perfect pairing. It is crisp and citrusy, while still having slight malty notes. With so many bold flavors going on inside this delicate appetizer, Silverback is the perfect way to complete the dish.
