Serves: 12


  • 24 pork breakfast sausage links
  • 1 package (17.3 oz.) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1⁄2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a heavy skillet, cook sausage links over medium heat until golden brown and cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  • Unfold puff pastry sheet and place on a lightly floured surface. In a small bowl, combine cheeses and thyme and toss to combine. Sprinkle this mixture over puff pastry and gently press it into pastry; roll into a 12-by-18-inch rectangle. Cut into 3 rectangles (12 by 6 inches), then cut each rectangle in half to make 6 squares. Cut each square into 4 squares (3 inches). Place a cooked and drained sausage on the edge of each square and roll up to enclose sausage; press edges of pastry to seal.
  • In a small bowl, beat egg with salt and brush over sausage rolls. Place on prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 12 to 18 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Serve hot.
