These great tasting sausage pinwheels are delicious and so simple to prepare and bake. Use a good quality all-butter puff pastry for the very best flavor
- 2 sheets puff pastry (about 15 to 18 ounces)
- 1 pound bulk sausage (breakfast sausage or Italian, if you prefer)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon milk (or light cream)
Thaw the puff pastry following package directions. Unfold, if necessary, and pat half of the sausage meat over each sheet to within 1/2 inch of one end.
Using your fingers, dab a little water along the edge you left empty. Roll and seal along the moistened end.
Wrap the cylinders in plastic wrap and freeze for about 30 minutes to firm up a bit. This isn't absolutely necessary, but it makes them easier to slice cleanly.
Heat the oven to 400 F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
Beat the egg with the milk to form an egg wash and lightly brush the firm cylinders with it. With a sharp knife, cut the rolls in 1/2-inch slices and arrange on the prepared baking sheets. Brush the tops lightly with a little more egg wash.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.
Pepperidge Farms and Trader Joe's puff pastry comes with 2 sheets, while some others, such as Dufours and Good Wives, come with 1 sheet. If you have a Trader Joe's nearby, it probably has the best flavor and butter content for the price.
