    CoolMonday's Note:

    This recipe is basically by Emeril Lagasse. I like it because I can fix it in the oven although he deep fried them. But he gave instructions for oven. Also, there is a recipe for preparing the pastry from scratch or using premade puff pastry. I opted for the puff pastry in the oven. Very tasty and pretty to look at.

      This was a great recipe. I left mine in a few minutes longer than the recipe suggested. Other than that, great! Thanks!

      Delicious! I was asked to take an appetizer for a dinner party where jambalaya was the main dish - this was a great complement that got compliments! By mistake I bought bread crumbs that were seasoned with Old Bay (at the seafood store) and it was still good. I would note that you need two full boxes of Pepperidge Farm puff pastry. I bought only one box and I have half the filling left even though I made 20 I think this recipe actually makes 40. I'm going to save the extra filling and use it for another occasion. My only suggestion would be to delete or reduce the salt.
