Serves: 6


  • 1 lb. sausage
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1⁄2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. sage
  • 1 box (15 oz.) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. milk


  • In skillet, brown sausage and onion for 7 to 10 minutes until sausage is no longer pink. Add garlic and sage. Roll out the pie crust to about half its original thickness and form a rectangle. Spread the sausage mixture along the long end of the rectangle. Beginning at the end with the sausage, roll the pie crust up like a jelly roll.
  • In a small bowl, mix the egg and milk. Brush around the outside of the roll with the egg mixture and slice decorative slits in the top of the dough. Cut into 2-inch pieces and spread on a baking sheet and freeze.
  • Bake frozen sausage rolls at 400°F for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
