These were a big hit at the office and at home. I used regular grated parmesan. It might be cheesier if it was fresh, but since the recipe did not specify I took the cheapo route. I also used cheap, mild, full-fat breakfast sausage. I baked the puffs on parchment paper, and when I took them out of the oven I tilted the tray slightly to let the grease run out of the sausage. Then, I lifted the puffs as quickly as possible onto paper towels to allow them to drain a bit (without sitting in a pool of their own grease), transferring them to a paper towel-lined tray. Not sure if the parchment paper was better than brown bags, but it worked--no one thought the pastries were overly greasy. I thought they were even better cold next-day. These were such a hit that I have been requested to make them on game days throughout the football season. Five stars for flavor (does anyone NOT like puff pastry?) and ease. Oh, don't forget your egg wash, they look so much prettier when they are shiny and the seams hold together much better.
