Lemon and thyme sausage and goats cheese roll (or plait) alla pierro


1 person made this

It began as breaded sausages made with cheap bulk sausagemeat and breadcrumbs made from my own bread. One day i decided to give it a rev.and so I bought some hot Italian sausages and some plain pork sausages,i mixed them together,added goats cheese and parmesan cheese, and wrapped the whole lot in puff pastry.
