Sausage Rolls

I promise I’ll get to the sausage rolls recipe in a moment, but first I have to tell you how I came about finding these scrumptious little bites. In my book club we read a culinary mystery called English Trifle by Josi S. Kilpack.  It definitely wasn’t my favorite read of our book club picks for the year, but the recipes intertwined in the mystery novel made up for the less than satisfactory story line.  Perhaps I didn’t fall in love with the book, but I do love the unique genre – culinary mystery. . . doesn’t that just sound delicious?  For book club that month we each made a recipe from the story and brought them to share around. . . YUM!

Today’s recipe comes from English Trifle.  I made these sausage rolls that night for book club and have been making them ever since.  The earthy savor of the sage sausage blends divinely with the pop of the mustard, all wrapped up in yummy bread!



2 cans crescent rolls OR puff pastry dough
1 pound sage sausage, cooked and drained
Dijon or spicy brown mustard
Parmesan cheese

Here’s what you do

Separate the dough into sections and spread each one with a thin layer of mustard.  Top them with a spoonful of cooked sausage.

Sausage-Rolls-1Roll them up into a nice little pouch.

Sausage-Rolls-2Sprinkle them with parmesan cheese.

Sausage-Rolls-3Bake for about 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees, or until lightly browned.  You can garnish them with a tiny bit of sage before you bake if you’d like.


I can eat these for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Really yummy.  Really.

Oh, and you can probably tell I’m quite a recipe hound since I’m so excited about culinary mysteries.  If you are too, check out how I organize my recipes.
