I have been making these for sixty years, but then..I am a brit. lolIn the USA I use Jimmy Dean, or any really good brand, as they seem to be less greasy.For the person confused by the cutting.. I beleive that she is taking each of the perforated strips, rolling out the sausage with her hands and placing it along the longest edge, then folling it up and cutting into the small bite size pieces.this is my way.. first I divide the sausage into twelve pieces. And have a small bowl of flour handy.Lets start with just one of the two sheets that are in the package. Roll it out to aprox the diamentions she gives. Then take a sharp knife and separate each section. Now you have three sections. Here is where I do it differently.I cut those three sections across the middle to make 6 smaller sections[__]I brush the edges with an egg wash. I also smear a small bit of mustard in the middle of each sheet.Dip your hands into the flour to make them less sticky. take one of the pieces of sausage and lightly roll it into the flour.Shape it into the longer length of the pastry square.. roll the sheet up and seal.You now have six rolls, from that ONE sheet.or twelve if you use both of the sheets in the package.Now you make the decision if you want these to remain big and serve one per person as a meal with a salad, ( it makes a gfeat lunch dish) or cut each roll in half as smaller rolls for snacks.If I am cutting them smaller, I first pop them into the freezer for about 20 min before cutting them. It just makes it easier to cut.I then continue to solidly freeze them on a tray and then put them all into a zip lock bag with the bake time and temp written on it. (400* for 20-22 min.I always have them in the freezer and ready to go. Buy the sausage when it is on sale and have a bake day.

Made a batch for super bowl party. They were all gone in short order. Will make these again.

Needs to be baked at a higher temp, at least 400 so the pastry puffs. Otherwise delicious!

Is there any reason crescent sheet/rolls couldn't be used for this recipe? Looking forward to trying this!

I am not a fan of paprika, so I only used half the amount throughout. I have to say they were very tasty, my husband and neighbour loved them. I WILL be making them again. X

I haven't tried the recipe yet because the instructions do not make sense....."On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into an 11x10-1/2-in. rectangle. Cut lengthwise into three strips. Spread 1/2 cup sausage mixture lengthwise down the center of each strip."1. 11 x 10 1/2 - which one of those measurements divides evenly by 3????2. Spreading 1/2 C - that is a total of 1 1/2 C. What do I do with the rest????Please, consider rewriting the instructions so that they make sense, then I REALLY want to try this recipe!

In England they are made with sausage meat with sage added. In the States I buy Jimmy dean with sage. A little grated onion works well. Seam underneath,sealed with beaten egg and top of rolls brushed with egg also. Sliced into 2 inch rolls, and snip top of each roll with scissors bake . On ungreased baking sheet in 425 degree oven for 20 - 25 min on high shelf . They can be frozen before baking and whipped out and baked as guests arrive. In England they are frequently served Christmas Eve with a mincemeat pie and a glass of sherry, especially comforting for carol singers who stop at the house bringing cheer to everyone with their singing. Ah, traditions, makers of memories....

BIKENUT - In reading your review it sounds like you put these rolls on a baking sheet, which would account for the "grease soaked" rolls. When putting them on a rack over a baking sheet, the grease drops down on to the baking sheet and allows for the rolls to crisp up all around. My family and friends loved these. For my second round I added some chopped mushrooms that i saut?ed in butter and garlic, very good this way!

These were so good! Halved it for just the two of us and turned out well. Was surprised they were more oily but that might be the sausage. And yes...we enjoyed them with the "tomato sauce".

These were good, although a little difficult to pinch edges.
