On a Sausage Roll
Recipe type: Appetizer
Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
  • ¼ cup fresh bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup minced fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • ½ pkg (450g pkg) frozen puff pastry, thawed and chilled (You can either purchase pre-rolled sheets, or roll them yourself)
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In bowl, beat 1 of the eggs until frothy; blend in sausage meat, bread crumbs, parsley, onion and garlic. Set aside.
  3. On lightly floured surface, unroll pastry; cut crosswise into 3-10"x3½ strips. Brush with mustard; spoon about ⅓ of the sausage mixture lengthwise down centre of each. Fold long sides over to cover filling and slightly overlap; press edge to seal.
  4. Arrange rolls, seam side down, on prepared pan. Cover and freeze until firm, about 15 minutes. Cut each roll crosswise into 8 pieces; space about 1" apart. (make ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours, or freeze until firm; layer between waxed paper in airtight container and freeze. Cook from frozen, adding 5 minutes to baking time.)
  5. In small bowl, whisk egg with 1 tbsp water; brush over rolls. Bake at 425F until puffed and golden, about 20 minutes.
  6. Makes 24 small sausage rolls.
