5 from 14 reviews

These tasty sausage rolls are buttery puff pasty stuffed with browned sausage, onion, a touch of Dijon mustard, and parsley.  They are brushed with egg wash and baked to golden perfection.


  • 2 frozen puff pastry sheets (17.3 ounces)
  • 1 lb ground pork sausage
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tablespoon cold water


  1. Remove puff pastry from freezer and thaw for 15 minutes prior to starting this recipe.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Cover baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Brown the sausage in skillet over medium heat.  When almost fully browned add the onion and cook 3-4 minutes.  Remove from heat and drain any excess grease. Stir in breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard and parsley.  Allow to cool for 15 minutes.  Stir in egg and egg yolk. Mix remaining egg white with water in separate bowl.
  4. Lay puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Using a pizza cutter cut sheets in half.  Make a line of the sausage mixture down the length of the pastry puff leaving about 1 inch on both sides.  Brush the length of the pastry that you are going to fold to with egg wash.  Bring the dough up and over the sausage mixture. Fold down to seal the puff pastry.  Brush tops and sides with egg wash.
  5. Cut into equal sections that are about 1 – 1 1/2 inches wide.  Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.


  • If possible use an all natural nitrate free bulk pork sausage with little or no seasonings added.
  • It takes puff pastry about forty five minutes to thaw so plan accordingly.  I like to thaw right before baking to ensure the best rise out of my puff pastry.
  • Do not unfold the puff pastry until it has thawed.
  • I like to use fresh unseasoned bread crumbs but on short notice I have used panko breadcrumbs and honestly I can not tell the difference.
  • Resist the urge to open the oven door too wide or too often to check on these.  I try not to open it if at all possible.  Puff pastry needs to bake in a very hot oven in order to rise properly.
  • Cover your baking sheets with parchment paper as it promotes even baking and browning on a nonstick surface with easy cleanup.
