To make the filling
Mince or finely chopped the bacon, onion and garlic.
In a bowl combine all the ingredients except the puff pastry, extra egg and poppy seeds.
To shape and cook sausage rolls
In a small bowl lightly beat the extra egg for an egg wash.
Lay a sheet of pastry on a work surface.
Cut sheet in half horizontally. Spread 1/8 of the mince mixture down the long side of one pastry half.
With clean hands, shape into sausage. Brush opposite long edge with a little egg mixture.
Roll the pastry around the mince mixture to form a long sausage.
Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
Cut into 6 even pieces and arrange on prepared baking tray allowing room to puff.
Repeat with the second pastry half.
Then repeat with the other 3 sheets of puff pastry using up all the mince mixture.
Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown and the filling is cooked through.
Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.
