Egg Bakes & Quiche Dishes

Egg & Sausage Twist


8 oz (225 g) puff pastry
8 oz (225 g) Italian sausage meat
4 eggs, hard-cooked, chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tsp (5 mL) Italian Seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
1 egg, beaten


Preheat oven to 400 ̊F (200 ̊C). Roll out pastry into oblong 30 cm x 25 cm (12 inches x 10 inches). Place on an oiled baking sheet. In a medium-size bowl, combine eggs and sausage meat; add onions, herbs, seasonings and incorporate.  When thoroughly combined, spread mixture along centre of pastry. On the pastry, place tip of knife close to filling and slash pastry on either side of filling into strips about ½ inch (1 cm) wide. Brush with ½ beaten egg to seal pastry and prevent mixture seeping out. Wrap strips over filling, alternating the right-hand side with the left, until filling is completely covered. Tuck in edges. Brush with remaining egg and bake for 30 – 40 minutes. Serve hot or cold.  Makes 10 servings.
