Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls
Whether you want a grab and go breakfast idea or a nice addition to a brunch menu or a quick appetizer, these sausage rolls are simple to make and super flavorful!
Each bite is delicious and although they look kind of fancy with that layered pastry puff, these can be ready in under 30 minutes.
In addition, you can make them in advance, then pop them in the oven to warm them up right before serving.
These can also be cooked and then frozen and warmed up when you want a few or the whole batch.
Several of the herbs used in this recipe are more than likely stocked in your kitchen. Gather the following:
- Ground Pork
- Onion flakes, dried
- puff pastry
How To Make Sausage Rolls
Since we are using Wewalka pre-made puff pastry, all you need to do is mix the sausage with the spices and eggs, then roll it up and whisk up an Eggland’s Best egg wash.
- In a large bowl mix pork sausage with onion flakes, basil, oregano, salt and pepper until well combined.
- Mix in two two eggs
- Unroll puff pastry and with a sharp knife or pizza cutter cut in half (vertically).
- Divide meat in four sections and place in the center of each slice of the puff pastry.
- In a small bowl whisk together one egg with a tablespoon of water and with a pastry brush coat the perimeter of each puff pastry sheet.
- Gently roll and add the egg wash to the top of each roll.
- Slice and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
