Cranberry Sausage Tartlettes

A delicious holiday appetizer! Very pretty, easy to make and a nice mixture of flavors. Also can be made ahead. I used premade filo dough tartlette shells found in the freezer section of my grocery store. I use chicken sausage to cut down on fat. I also substitute minced onion for the scallions and it works just fine! Show more

Ready In: 35 mins

Serves: 9

Yields: 45 tartelettes




  1. Combine cranberries, sugar, and juice in a saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil, simmer until cranberries are soft and some have popped, about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, saute sausage - keep breaking it apart into crumbled sausage.
  5. Add scallions/onions to sausage for about 1 - 2 minutes.
  6. Drain off fat (if you use chicken sausage there won't be any!), stir in cranberry mix.
  7. Fill precooked shells.
  8. Serve!
  9. You can make the filling the day before, just don't fill the shells until just before serving so they don't get soggy (although the filo ones hold up very well!).
