Sausage rolls are a delicious pastry dish that can be enjoyed as an appetizer or main course, and they are also great party food. The sausage filling is seasoned with onion, herbs, breadcrumbs and egg.
In a bowl, combine the sausage mix with the onion, herbs, breadcrumbs and the egg. Mix well.
Divide the sausage mixture into 4 portions. Shape each portion into a sausage form being, the same length as the long side of the pastry rectangles.
Heat the oven to 350º F.
Place one sausage log on each pastry rectangle. Brush edges of the pastry with a little water and roll the pastry over the sausage meat. Press the edges to close the sides of the pastry roll. Cut each pastry roll into 3 pieces, opening 2 slits on top.
Place the sausage rolls on an oiled oven tray. Brush the top lightly with water. Bake the sausage rolls until cooked through, about 25 minutes.
Remove the sausage rolls from the oven when they are ready and let them cool a little before serving.
