Hot Sicilian Sausage Rolls


1 lb (500g) Schneiders® Country Naturals® Hot Sicilian Countryside Sausage, casings removed

1 cup (250 mL) Grated Parmesan cheese

.25 cup (60 mL) Chopped fresh parsley

1 (397 g) Package Tenderflake® Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted overnight in the refrigerator

1 Egg yolk

1 tbsp (15 mL) Water

1 tbsp (15 mL) Course salt

Surprise your guests with a sausage and cheese stuffed puff pastry roll that will make for a delightful and scrumptious party appetizer.


PREHEAT oven to 400°F (200°C).

PLACE sausage meat, parmesan cheese and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Gently mix to combine. Set aside.

ROLL each puff pastry on a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin into a 10”x14” (25×35 cm) rectangle. Cut each rectangle into six squares.

DIVIDE the sausage mixture equally between each pastry square. Fold in half and pinch the edges to seal in filling. Use a sharp knife to make a small slit in top of each roll to allow steam to escape while cooking. Transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Whisk together egg yolk and water in a small bowl. Brush over each pastry and sprinkle with salt. Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until crisp and golden and the internal temperature of each roll reaches 160°F (71°C).
