Sausage Rolls

Molly’s Sausage Rolls

Well, this season sausage rolls are all the rage, but since we like everything with a hint of spice, here’s our version!

1lb ground fresh pork (or a 50/50 mix of ground turkey and ground pork, or seitan, for a vegetarian version)
Mix pork with :
   1 large sweet onion, peeled, diced, sauteed until soft and golden brown, then thoroughly chilled before mixing,
   1-3 tablespoons pureed chipotle chiles in adobo,
   1 Tbsp kosher salt
   1 Tbsp brown sugar (raw is best)
   1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Mix above ingredients together, then form logs of the mixture on parchment or wax paper. Chill well.
While pork is chilling, remove from wrapper 2 boxes puff pastry and unfold. Cut pastry along fold creases and roll each strip just slightly flatter, dusted with flour.
Cut a piece of sausage the width of your pastry and brush pastry with beaten egg.
Place sausage at end of roll and roll so dough goes around twice. Cut off excess and place, seam side down, on parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Brush tops of rolls with beaten egg, and with a very sharp knife, score the pastry 2-3 times on top.
If you like, sea salt or sesame seeds are nice on the crust.
Bake at 375F, approximately 35 minutes, or until sausage filling is 165F in the center. If pastry is browning too fast, lower oven temp by 10F and place a sheet of foil over the top.
Serve with a variety of mustards – the smoky flavor of these goes great with honey mustard – or sour cream and fresh avocado sauce.
Can be made ahead and frozen raw or baked.
Happy Noshing!
Big Mama 🙂
