Sausage Rolls


1 package Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry
20 oz. sausage meat


The potluck version included a mixture of Jimmy Dean regular and hot sausages.


Defrost pastry. Unfold and cut into six rectangles (along the fold lines).
Mix sausage meat and roll into six 1/2″ diameter sausages.  Place on the pastry.
Fold pastry over and crimp with a fork. Brushing with water can help with adhesion.
Roll the pastry so the crimp is on the bottom.
(Chilling for some time will help with cutting.)

Heat oven to 425.
Cut each roll as desired and place on baking sheet(s):
– into 8 for bite size (48 portions)
– into 4 for heavier appetizers (24 portions)
– into 2 or 3 for a dinner with baked beans

Cook until golden brown about 20 mins. Rotate baking sheets part way through for even browning.
