"These are popular in Ireland as party food, or in take-away shops. You could use your favorite sausage, but this blend is close to the flavors of Irish sausage. Make sure to use lean pork (or sausage if using) so you don't get too much grease when baking."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Grind the herbs (thyme through pepper) in a spice/coffee grinder until a fine powder.

Step 2

Add the ground herbs and minced garlic to the breadcrumbs in a large mixing bowl and mix together.

Step 3

Add the ground pork to the seasoned breadcrumbs and combine using your fingers. Add half of the beaten egg and mix thoroughly until the meat mixture begins to stick together. Add the excess egg to the second beaten egg for the egg wash.

Step 4

Using your hands roll the sausage, forming 4 cylindrical shapes about 3/4 inches thick and 10 inches long. Set meat aside.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.

Step 6

Open a thawed puff pastry sheet on a floured surface. Cut into 3 strips about 3 inches wide and 10 inches long.

Step 7

Place a 3 inch piece of the pre-formed sausage meat on the pastry close to the edge. Roll the pastry around the meat, overlapping underneath by one inch.

Step 8

Cut the pastry roll, then roll it back to brush the lower layer with egg wash. Re-roll and seal the lower seam.

Step 9

Using a sharp knife, cut two diagonal 1/2 inch slits in the top surface of the roll. Repeat the procedure to form 18 sausage rolls.

Step 10

Lay the prepared sausage rolls on the baking tray in rows one inch apart.

Step 11

Brush the top of the pastry with egg wash.

Step 12

Bake for 20 minutes. Lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake for a further 5 minutes.

Step 13

Remove from the oven when golden brown on top. Cool the sausage rolls on a wire rack.

Step 14

Serve hot or cold as desired.

Delicious appetizer that we really enjoyed. I'm not positive I wrapped them correctly but they seemed to turn out well and they taste great. It's hard to stop eating them!

These were great! The pork mixture tasted a lot like breakfast sausage (so if anyone wants to try this and they don't want to mess with mixing up the meat mixture, I think ground breakfast sausage might work as a substitution) and went good with scrambled eggs and banana. Made for FYC Tag.

I love sausage rolls, so I was eager to try this recipe. I'd never actually made sausage before, so this was a great learning experience. It tasted delicious, and I will definitely do this more often. Thanks for sharing! Made for Culinary Quest 2015 by a Toasted Tourist.
