  2. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except the pastry and the egg.
  3. Halve the pastry sheet lengthways to make 2 long rectangles. Divide the meat mixture in half, then put one half along the middle of one pastry strip to form a long sausage. Brush one long edge of the pastry with the egg, roll the pastry over and seal it together to form a long roll. Repeat with the remaining pastry rectangle.
  4. Cut each large roll into 10 pieces, then put them seam-side down on the tray. Slash the top of each roll a few times with a knife, then brush them lightly with egg.
