Parmesan Pastry Pups
January 4, 2016—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
When planning a holiday get-together, it's best to keep in mind that finger foods are the key to any successful soiree. The availability of quality finger foods ensures your guests' ability to travel from group to group, beverage in hand, without the need for a cumbersome plate to carry their choice of nibbles.
Trader Joe's Parmesan Pastry Pups are precisely the finger foods you need to make your holiday gathering an out-of-the-park hit. Not only are they just the right size for single-handed transport, they are, contrary to their down-home roots, rather elegant hors d'oeuvres. They begin with nitrite-free mini hot dogs that are packed with flavor. They're wrapped in all-butter puff pastry - a crispy little blanket, if you will - and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Placed on a tray in your oven, they bake to a flaky, golden finish. Very little effort on your part, and yet, the applause will be directed entirely in your direction.
These dogs will also allow you to pinch your party planning pennies. We're selling each 10.5 ounce box of 14 Parmesan Pastry Pups for $4.49. Woof.
