Servings: 12 rolls


1 pound pork sausage
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried sage
Salt and pepper to taste
1 package of pre-made puff pastry, thawed
1 egg, beaten for egg wash


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the chopped onion and garlic. Cook until they are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the pork sausage to the skillet and break it up with a spoon. Cook until well browned. Stir in the thyme, sage, salt, and pepper, then remove from heat and let cool slightly.

4. Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut into rectangles (about 5×3 inches each).

5. Divide the sausage mixture evenly among the pastry rectangles, placing a small amount on one end of each rectangle.

6. Roll the pastry over the sausage, tucking in the ends, and seal with a bit of beaten egg.

7. Place the rolls seam side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

8. Brush the tops of the rolls with the remaining beaten egg for a golden finish.

9. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until they are puffed and golden brown.

10. Let them cool slightly before serving.

Variations & Tips

For an extra kick, you can add some red pepper flakes or a dash of cayenne pepper to the sausage mixture. If you prefer, substitute the pork for another type of ground meat like turkey or beef for a different twist. For a cheesy delight, sprinkle some grated cheddar or mozzarella on top of the sausage before rolling the pastry.
