Farinheira Sausage Roll-up


These sausage pinwheels are just right for serving with drinks, their salty taste fueling the fire for boozy refreshment, and vice versa. The savory filling is made with traditional Portuguese farinheira sausage meat that's removed from the casings after the sausages are boiled. (Save that flavorful cooking water for cooking rice or other grains.) Puff pastry is used for the crust, and it is a foolproof way to flaky perfection.

  • 1 package puff pastry
  • 1 egg yolks


  1. 1With a fork, pierce sausages 2-3 times.
