Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 to 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ pound ground venison
  • ½ pound ground pork
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • Puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water, for egg wash

Directions:

  1. Place the ground venison, pork, and all spices into a large bowl. Using your hands or a stout paddle, mix thoroughly until the sausage binds together. Refrigerate overnight to let the flavors meld.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degree
  3. Lay out a sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured countertop and, with a rolling pin, press into a thin rectangle. Cut the pastry lengthwise into three equal pieces.
  4. Form a handful of sausage into a cylinder and lay onto the center of one piece of pastry. Brush one edge of the pastry with water and fold the dough over the sausage. Seal the edges with a fork. Repeat with the remaining sausage and dough, then cut each crosswise into four to six pieces.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the sausage rolls onto the sheet. Brush with remaining egg wash and bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 20-25 minutes.
