mini sausage rolls

cute little bites

These are really simple to make - especially because I used store bought puff pastry:)

what you need:
  • 1 package puff pastry
  • 6 or so italian sausages (or whatever kind you fancy)
  • 1 handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 green onions, chopped finely
  • a little bit of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 egg
what to do:
  1. In a large bowl, mash together sausages (casings removed), mustard, breadcrumbs, salt & pepper, milk, greens and nutmeg.  Allow mixture to sit in the fridge for about 4 hours (or overnight).
  2. Roll out puff pastry and cut into 2 1/2" width strips.  (About 3 strips each sheet)
  3. Beat egg in small bowl.
  4. Brush egg onto one side of the strip.  Spoon out the sausage mixture and place it along the other side of the strip, taking up no more than 1/3 width.  
  5. Roll it up and make sure the seam is on the bottom. Refrigerate or freeze for about 1 hour, then slice into small bites and brush with egg on top prior to baking.
  6. Bake at 425 F for 20 minutes, until tops are golden brown.  Enjoy!
