Ostrich Crépinettes

A crépinette is a small, flattened sausage, sometimes referred to as a sausage parcel.[1] It is similar in shape to a sausage patty, circular, and flatten with meat.

It is made from minced or ground pork, turkey, veal, lamb or chicken, and can even be made from truffles.[2]

Crépinettes are wrapped in caul fat, rather than wrapped in a casing. It is usually cooked with an outer coating of bread and sautéed in butter.[2]

Crépinette originated from France. The word Crépine is French for "pig's caul".[2]
