SAUSAGE PINWHEELS

Advertisement

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb sausage or English bangers, skin removed and crumbled
  • 1/2 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • One 17.3-ounce package Puff Pastry (2 sheets), thawed
  • 1 large egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped green onions or chives for garnish, optional

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sausage with the onion, sage and Parmesan.  Using your hands for best results, squish the onion, sage and Parmesan into the sausage.  Wash your hands.
  3. Roll out the two sheets of Puff Pastry to make them a little bit thinner.  Divide the sausage mixture between the two sheets of Puff Pastry and form it each into a log down the middle of the Puff Pastry.  Brush the edges of the Puff Pastry with the egg wash.  Roll the pastry over the sausage into a long roll and wrap around to make sure the edges are sealed.  Brush with more egg wash to make sure.  Slice the the edges off and discard.  Slice each roll into nine 1-inch slices.  Place on the baking sheet, sausage-side-down.  Brush the pastries with egg wash and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until the pastry is baked through and golden throughout.
