Sausage Rolls

Sausage Rolls
by Willie Simmons

8 ounces milk
2 ounces vegetable oil
2 ounces sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons yeast
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
your favorite sausage cut into 4 inch pieces, can be halved depending on the size
pickled, sliced jalapenos, 2 slices per roll
1 egg

Heat the first three ingredients in a saucepan until the sugar is dissolved. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool until it's lukewarm. Sprinkle the yeast on top and let it sit for a minute or so. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir til combined. Cover the bowl with a towel and let rest and rise for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350. On a floured surface, roll out the dough until it's thin, about 1/8 of an inch. Cut the rolled out dough into 4 x 8 inch pieces. Place 2 slices of jalapeno and a piece of sausage down the center of each piece of dough. Fold the short ends over the ends of the sausage pieces and then roll up the sausage roll and place on a rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment paper, seam side down.

Put a little water in a bowl with one egg and beat it together. Brush each sausage roll with a little egg wash. Bake until golden brown.
