"My Mom discovered this sausage roll recipe years ago and it has been passed around many, many times. A sausage mixture is baked into a puff pastry roll and served as little appetizer bites."

onion, finely chopped
celery, finely chopped
chopped fresh parsley
ground black pepper to taste
1/2 (17.5 ounce) package

Tried it and loved it! Could serve with a side salad for a complete meal. Excellent job!
I had several problems with this recipe. One half of a 17.5 oz. pkg. of puff pastry IS one 8x12 sheet, at least in the Pepperidge Farm variety. So the recipe should actually call for 1 pkg., not 1/2 pkg if there is supposed to be enough filling for two rolls. (Good thing I tried this out before my party, as I had already committed the other sheet of pastry to a baked Brie!)
Because of the concerns about greasiness mentioned in a previous review, I baked my pinwheels on a cookie rack placed on my baking tray so they might drain a little during baking, which seemed to help. They definitely benefit from draining on paper towels after baking, and also from the ginger apricot dipping sauce I made to with them.
And 300 degrees for 20 minutes? No way - try 375 for 25 minutes instead. (The recipes that came w/ the puff pastry all called for 375-400, anyway.)
These pinwheels came out about 3 inches in diameter (quite a bit larger than "appetizer bites"), and that was starting with the longer edge when they were rolled up. They would have been even larger had I started rolling at the short edge. The puff pastry in the center of the pinwheels was a bit soggy, too. Next time, I will cut the 8x12 down to 6x8.
(It wouldn't hurt to reduce the amount of sausage to 12 oz. either, which is the most convenient size pkg. available.)
I was disappointed in this recipe. It took much longer to brown that I had thought and they were so greasy... maybe it was the brand of sausage I used, but I don't think I'll be making this again anytime soon.
This recipe is so easy and impressive. I've made it numerous times and always get asked for the recipe. delicious. I made it the first time using parsley, but tried sage the next time. I have to admit the sage was a personal preference and we liked it better.
This was delicious!
I enjoyed the taste and they are easy to make. I used 1/2 an onion and added some dried sage. The only thing I was not happy about was the pastry didn't puff in the oven, it was a bit heavy. I think I might try to refrigerator the sliced rolls before I cook them, maybe if the butter in the pastry is cool it will puff better.
Just a big mess....and not very tasty either!
I think the baking temperature is incorrect - try 400. The sausage itself needs a few more spices for us. They were OK but not as delicious as they could have been.
