Zucchini and sausage rollups

Delicate, flaky dough filled with spicy sausage slices, zucchini and fresh herbs.

When you’re craving something savory, delicate and filling, we’ve got just the thing. Zucchini and sausage rollups are stuffed with spicy sausage slices, zucchini and fresh herbs, giving every bite you take a huge wallop of flavor.

Feel free to use a vegetarian sausage, such as Italian-style Tofurkey, which works great in this recipe. We’re betting your carnivorous friends won’t even know the difference!


  • 1 sheet puff pastry dough
  • 2 zucchinis, thinly sliced
  • 3 spicy sausages, thinly sliced
  • Fresh or dried dill
  • Chives and parsley, optional
  • Brown or Dijon mustard
  • Sesame seeds, optional
  • Dried onion, optional


Preheat oven to 375° F. Line a long baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Line counter with large piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle liberally with flour. (This is simply to make cleanup easier; if you don’t mind a mess on the counter, skip the parchment.)

Roll out puff pastry dough on parchment paper to a thin rectangle.

Smear a thin layer of mustard onto the dough (use any type of mustard – they all work well).

Place sausage and zucchini pieces in single layer on dough. Sprinkle with fresh or dried dill, parsley and/or chives.

Fold over twice, starting from the long side, and seal edges.

Brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and/or dried onion and more herbs.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until top has browned. Cool on wire rack. Slice into 2-inch pieces; serve warm.
