Equipment

  • Baking Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • pastry brush
  • Rolling Pin (optional)

Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 lb ground pork sausage Use your favorite brand or feel free to mix things up. I like to do a mix of maple sausage and italian sausage.
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry I recommend Pepperidge Farm's 1.1 lb package. It comes with 2 sheets and is easy to thaw and work with.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk

Instructions
 

  • Take puff pastry out of the freezer and follow thawing instructions. If using Pepperidge Farm puff pastry it usually requires about 30-35 minutes at room temperature before it is pliable enough to roll out.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Use you hands to mix up your sausage and divide into 2 equal portions.
  • Once your puff pastry has thawed enough to work with, lay it out on the counter. Use a rolling pin to gently flatten it, but do NOT overwork.
  • Take one portion of sausage meat and roll it out like a snake to the length of the puff pastry (the length of the longest side). Place it on the puff pastry about 1 inch from the edge and and lightly wet the edge closest to the sausage with a little water.
  • Wrap the sausage in the puff pastry and position seem side down.
  • Use a sharp knife to lightly score the outside of the puff pastry and slice the roll into 1-2 inch pieces depending on your personal preference.
  • Repeat the process with the second pastry sheet and sausage portion.
  • Arrange the sausage rolls seem side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together 1 egg and a splash of milk (about a tbsp) and then brush the tops of the sausage rolls with the egg wash.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes until cooked through and golden brown. Enjoy!
