Australian Sausage Rolls

Australian Sausage Rolls

6 slices of bread
1/2 cup hot water
4lbs ground sausage meat
1 onion (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp mixed herbs
24 ounce package of ready puff pastry (thawed)
1 egg (beaten)
Desired seasonings to taste

Take the crusts off of the bread and soak the bread in hot water for about 5 minutes. Remove the excess water from the bread. In a large bowl, mix together the sausage meat, bread, onion, desired seasonings, and mixed herbs. Blend well, then place the mixture into an icing piping bag (or a freezer bag with a corner snipped off). Roll out the pastry sheets and cut them in half. Pipe the filling along one edge of each sheet of pastry. Roll the pastry over the sausage twice (or until the sausage is fully encased in the pastry). Cut a few slits into the top of each pastry and brush them with a beaten egg. Move the sausage rolls to a baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees F for about 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F for an additional 10 - 15 minutes.
