Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery

In a large skillet, cook the first 5 ingredients over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain. Add cream cheese, green onion and parsley; cook and stir over low heat until cheese is melted.

On each long side, cut 3/4-in.-wide strips 3 in. into center. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling; seal ends. Brush with egg.
