These savory sausage and puff pastry rolls are a Christmas morning favorite of celebrity event planner Colin Cowie. A dip in tangy Worcestershire sauce adds the perfect finishing touch.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped cooked potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons crushed dried sage leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (17-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set a wire rack on a baking sheet and set aside.

  2. Place pork, onion, potato, parsley, sage, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes in a large bowl; using a fork, mix to combine. Transfer mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large plain round tip.

  3. Unfold each sheet of puff pastry (it should be folded into thirds) into a 9-by-9 1/2-inch rectangle and cut each sheet along the fold marks to make six 9 1/2-by-3 1/2-inch rectangles. Gently roll each rectangle out to form six 11-by-4-inch rectangles.

  4. Pipe pork mixture along one edge of the long end of a rectangle; brush opposite edge with egg. Starting from the edge with the pork mixture, roll up puff pastry, pressing to seal. Slice into rolls about 1 1/2 inches thick and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining puff pastry rectangles and pork mixture.

  5. Brush rolls with remaining egg mixture and transfer to oven; bake until golden about 20 minutes. Serve with Worcestershire sauce, for dipping.

    Oh my goodness. I made these for an appetizer for Christmas dinner and my family loved them. My 13 and 16 year old nephews whispered in my ear as they hugged me goodnight that night askind me if I'd make more for them. Easy, easy to make and really good. I found that the cooking time needed to be about 30 mins instead of 20 but that may just be my oven. I will be making more tomorrow to freeze and have for later...oh and to give some to my nephews!
