Ingredients

  • 1 17.3 oz box frozen puff pastry (2 sheets) thawed per package instructions
  • 1 ½ lbs pork breakfast sausage hot or mild, your preference
  • 12 oz chive and onion cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg plus 1 tsp cold water beaten together for egg wash
  • 1-2 Tbsp Everything bagel seasoning adjust amount to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
  • In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat until no pink remains. Pour excess fat from pan.
  • To the sausage add cream cheese. Stir over low just until melted and completely combined. Set aside.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll each sheet of puff pastry into roughly a 16 x 10 inch rectangle.
  • Brush the edges of each sheet with egg wash. Place one sheet on pan. Spread sausage mixture evenly to within ½ inch of edges. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Press second puff pastry sheet over sausage. Use a fork or pastry wheel to seal edges. Brush entire surface with egg wash. Sprinkle with Everything bagel seasoning.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until puffed and golden.
  • Let stand on pan for 5-10 minutes to allow pasty to settle.
  • Cut into 30 even pieces and serve. (May also cut into squares and then triangles, if desired)
