Halloween Bloody Small Intestines Pastry Recipe

Halloween Party Tips Recipes

I absolutely loved making and eating this delicious Halloween pastry! This is visually stunning and so much fun and honestly how could chorizo and cheese ever go wrong? Be sure to make the "intestines" twisty and serve with extra ketchup/tomato sauce. Everyone that stood there cutting this up and eating it looked like zombies. Honestly I could not have been happier...

Step 2 - Lay out one sheet of filo pastry on a clean surface and brush with melted butter. Add another sheet, brush again and then add one more sheet so you have three sheets of filo in total. Place the sausage mixture on the long end and roll up the pastry in a maze pattern like intestines. Repeat until the tray is full of burek.

Step 3 - Brush with the tomato sauce (for blood) and bake for 25 minutes. This can also be made ahead of time and frozen (unbaked).
