Sausage Rolls with Shallots + Pears
October 8, 2014 – 3:28 pm | No Comment

Sausage Rolls with Shallots + PearsWe are always on the look out for ways to incorporate our jam into every day recipes. And we think we found one that you will love. Flaky rolls filled with sausage, shallots and our Pear & Hazelnut Jam. They are a combination of sweet and salty, and make the perfect appetizer for this holiday season. Or better yet, make them for football Sunday and enjoy with a nice cold beer. The best part is, they take about 15 minutes to prepare and only 35 minutes to bake.

Sausage Rolls with Shallots + Pears Sausage Rolls-3Sausage Rolls with Shallots + Pears

1 teaspoon oil
1 small shallot, minced
1 egg
1/2 pound ground pork (plain, italian, mild or hot, they all work great)
2 tablespoons panko
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons Pear & Hazelnut Jam
10×10 inch sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed and cut in half

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small frying pan, heat up the oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the shallots and set aside.

In a small dish, crack the egg and whisk. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the ground pork, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, shallots and pear jam. Add half of the beaten egg and stir everything together. Reserve the other half of the egg.

Divide the pork in two and arrange in a line on the puff pastry sheets. Fold the top half of the sheet down over the meat, brush the bottom part of the sheet with the egg wash and roll the pastry and meat so the seam is facing down. Repeat with the other sheet. Using a serrated knife gently cut each roll in 8 pieces. Feel free to make them bigger or smaller. Arrange on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes. You want them to be golden brown and puffed up.

Serve warm.
