Sausage Puffs

Just to share a simple recipe on sausage puffs - ideal as appetizers for parties, tea time or just because. I really like this cos it's simple, fast and delicious too!

Ingredients :
1) Nutriplus Cheese Chicken Franks - 4pcs (Each pack contains 6)
2) Borg's puff pastry or butter puff pastry - 1 sheet (Each pack contains 4-7 sheets)
3) An egg - lightly beaten
4) Heinz mustard or for a sweeter taste : Honey mustard (see pic below)

1) Silicone baking sheets
2) Pastry brush
3) Bowl/Fork
4) Knife

 Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees Celcius.

Remove a sheet of puff pastry from packaging and place on silicone baking sheet.  The puff pastry should be still cold from the freezer. Do not thaw it or it will be difficult to handle. Make sure the chicken franks are thawed though. You can choose any chicken franks/sausages e.g. garlic, mushroom etc. but I find the ones with cheese are juicier to the bite!

Divide the puff pastry sheet into 4 equal squares. Squeeze a dollop of mustard on the center of each square and spread evenly using a fork or the pastry brush. Then place the chicken frank on top and roll it tightly.

Use a knife to slice each roll into 4 parts. After that, arrange them on the baking tray lined with silicone baking sheet or baking paper so the pastry doesn't stick on the tray. 

Using the pastry brush, cover the pastries with the egg. This will make the bake the pastry golden brown. Pop them in the oven for 20 minutes or more until golden brown.

Cool them on a wire rack and eat them whilst hot so they are super crunchy!
