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
Serve the pinwheels as a snack with dip or marinara, or serve with eggs for breakfast or brunch.
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 necessary, but it makes them easier to slice cleanly.
Heat the oven to 400 F. Line two 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.
Remove to paper towels to drain slightly. Serve as an appetizer with ketchup, marinara, or barbecue sauce, or serve with eggs for breakfast or brunch.
- Pepperidge Farms and Trader Joe's puff pastry comes with two sheets, while some others, such as Dufours and Good Wives, come with one sheet. If you have a Trader Joe's nearby, it probably has the best flavor and butter content for the price.
