...and then I got hungry!!

Well after all that crocheting, I got hungry!!  Anyone would!  I had a nice package of german mini sausages in my fridge which I had been intending to make sausage rolls with.  No better time to bake than when you're hungry.  The dough is really quite simple:

Dough recipe:

1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil (canola, corn, etc..)
1/2 cup hot water
big pinch of salt
3 cups flour

Directions:  In a large bowl, mix the melted butter, oil, salt and water.  Mix in 2 cups of flour.  Mixture will be quite soft.  Turn the dough onto a floured surface and work in as much of the remaining 1 cup of flour as it will take.  You may not need it all.  Wrap in plastic wrap and either refridgerate for an hour, or you may freeze for later use.

Take the dough out and cut into thirds.  Place one third between two long sheets of parchment paper and roll out until even and approx 1/6 of an inch thin.

Now you can cut dough sheet into squares and then cut each square in half on the diagonal.  You wrap each sausage in a triangle.  Brush with a beaten egg, and bake for approx. 22 minutes (give or take according to your ovens strength) or until slightly golden.  Yummy with or without mustard.  Beer optional!
