Makes 4 servings

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes


*1 pound breakfast seasoned ground pork, I like using Mulay's

*1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

*1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed

*1 egg

*2 tablespoons water


*Combine pork and bread crumbs in a mixer or with a fork.

*Preheat oven to 425F.

*Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the thawed puff pastry into a 12x9 rectangle. Cut the pastry in half length-wise so you have two long strips.

*Divide the sausage mixture into two equal portions and begin hand rolling into logs about 1-inch thick.

*Place each log of sausage into the middle of the puff pastry strips.

*Combine egg with water to make egg wash and brush along the edges of the puff pastry.

*Pull both sides of puff pastry up to meet in the middle, completely covering the meat. Gently pinch the seam together so that there are no holes.

*Flip the logs over, seam side down and cut each into 4 equally sized pieces.

*Use a sharp blade to slice 3-4 venting holes into the top of each piece.

*Place onto baking tray, seam side down. Combine egg with water to make egg wash and brush onto the top and sides of each roll.

*Bake for 25-30 minutes, rotating the baking sheet once half way through.
