For the egg wash:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • Be sure to follow the directions on the puff pastry package so your dough is thawed properly and is ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  • Unfold dough onto a lightly floured surface. You should have 2 big squares. Cut each square in half to create 4 long rectangles.
  • Combine the Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Sausage, bread crumbs, milk, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper in a large bowl or food processor and mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.
  • Divide the sausage mix evenly into 4 sections and make a long tube down each rectangle pastry (see picture below).
  • Roll the pastry up over the Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Sausage and pinch the seam together.  Cut each roll into 4 sections. 
  • Place the sections on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking sheet. 
  • Mix the egg wash together and brush each roll with it. Then sprinkle on a little paprika (see picture below).
  • Bake at 425 for only 5 minutes. Then reduce heat to 350 and bake 30-35 more minutes. Drain excess out of the pan part way through the baking time. 
  • The rolls should look puffed and golden and the sausage in the center should be cooked through.
  • Remove from pan onto some paper towels to cool.
  • These are traditionally eaten plain or dipped in ketchup. They are also delicious dipped in barbecue sauce, marinara, alfredo sauce, country gravy, and cheese sauce.
