TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage Roll
  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 15 sheets phyllo dough (14x9 in.)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook sausage, sweet onion, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon pepper over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and remaining pepper. In same skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Pour in egg mixture; cook and stir until almost set. Stir in cheese, green onions and sausage mixture. Remove from heat.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 350°. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; brush with melted butter. Layer with four additional phyllo sheets, brushing with butter after each layer. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Repeat, making three stacks.
  • 4. Cut each stack in half lengthwise and in half crosswise, forming four 7x4-1/2-in. rectangles. Spoon 1/4 cup egg mixture along a long side of each rectangle; roll up.
  • 5. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, seam side down. With a sharp knife, make four shallow slashes across each roll; brush with butter. Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 12 servings.
