Italian Sausage Rolls Recipe

Ingredients:
1/2 lb sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup breadcrumbs, fresh is possible
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (half of a 17 oz. package)
1 egg
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preparation Instructions:
Lightly grease a large baking sheet. Combine the breadcrumbs and milk in a small bowl. Let stand until milk is absorbed, about 5 minute. Transfer to a food processor. Add the sausage, onion, 1 egg, garlic, and oregano; pulse until blended and season with salt and pepper. Unfold the pastry sheet on a floured work surface and roll out into a 12×10-inch rectangle. Cut the pastry crosswise into three 10×4-inch strips and brush each strip with the beaten egg. Spoon 1/3 of the sausage mixture in a narrow strip lengthwise down the center of each pastry strip. Fold the long sides in, covering the filling and overlapping slightly in the center. Press the seam down slightly to seal. Arrange rolls seam side down on the prepared baking sheet. Cover and chill until rolls are firm, and least 10 min and up to 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 425ºF while the rolls are chilling. Cut the firm rolls crosswise into 8 pieces. Separate pieces on the baking sheet and brush with some of the remaining beaten egg. Bake rolls until puffed and golden, about 20 minutes. Serve warm with marinara sauce.
