Vouvray and Appetizers for a Pug Visit

Me and the Wine

My pug pals belong to one of Valerie’s friends.  They live over one block, and we sometimes meet them in the forest on our walks.  They’ve been over to play with me too.

So tonight we’re taking over  a lovely Vouvray and Balsamic Onion Puff Pastries for an evening in.

Onions Cooking Down


1 onion

3 tbs balsamic vinegar

3 tbs olive oil

4 dried juniper berries crushed

2 tbs pepper jam

1/2 tsp salt

Montreal steak seasoning

I sheet puff pastry

Chop onion finely, add to hot oil stir over med high heat until softening.  Add balsamic vinegar and salt.  Cook until soft and jam like.  Take off heat and stir in pepper jam and juniper berries.  Cool.

Unroll puff pastry and pat into a square.  Spread cooled filling over puff pastry.  Roll up, and cut into slices.  Place on an oiled cookie sheet, sprinkle tops with Montreal Steak Spice.  Bake at 400F for 15 minutes.

Not dog friendly, but we have our own cookies.
