Cool Night: Warm Dinner Sausage Rolls

Soccer, basketball, cheer leading, football and track… Just a few ways to keep the family running around town! Activities that mold and shape character in our children help us roll with the schedules. When it is time to zip into the house and feed the famished fans… here is a great zingy meal that is hands on, and is perfect for recapping the games.

Chorizo Sausage Rolls
1 large onion, peeled and chopped fine ( or grated)
2 carrots, peeled and grated
1 pound of Chorizo sausage
1 (17.5 oz) package of frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
1 large egg, beaten

Preparation: Heat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil or use your broiler pan with the separate slotted top. (This allows the grease to run off of the roll as it bakes.) Line the bottom part of the broiler pan with aluminum foil for easier clean up.
In a mixing bow, mix together the onion, carrots, and sausage.
Use on pastry sheet at a time, keeping the other one refrigerated until ready to use.
Roll one pastry as thin as possible lengthwise. Place 1/2 sausage mixture on the sheet about 1 1/2 inches from the edge, lengthwise; roll. Repeat with second pastry and remaining sausage mixture. (Up to this point, sausage rolls can be done ahead of time, and kept covered in the refrigerator.)
Glaze by brushing with beaten egg.
Place both sausage rolls on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until deep golden brown. Halfway through the cooking time, turn them over. Be careful, there is a lot of excess grease left on the baking sheet.
Makes 2 sausage rolls, with 12 slices each.byDeborahon
