5 slices white sandwich bread, crusts removed, torn
1/3 cup milk
1 tblsp olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
30g sachet taco seasoning
500g sausage mince
1 egg, separated
1⁄2 cup finely chopped fresh coriander
300g jar medium chunky tomato salsa
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 1⁄2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
Place bread in a large bowl with milk. Stand for 5 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed.

3 Add onion, mince, egg white, coriander and 1/3 cup of the salsa to bread mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
4 Cut an opening 6cm up from the tip of a new piping bag. Spoon mince mixture into piping bag. Twist top.
5 Place pastry sheets on a clean, at surface. Cut two whole sheets in half lengthways. Pipe the mixture down the long side of each piece. Roll up to enclose. Brush rolls with lightly beaten egg yolk.

7 Cook in a hot oven (200C) for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Remove from oven. Stand on trays for 5 minutes.
