  7. Or you just make a mix like I did! If the puff pastry becomes a little too soft to work with, put it in the fridge for 5 minutes and then go on assembling your piggies. Once all of the mini cocktail sausages are coated in the pastry, place them on a baking tray lined with a sheet of baking paper. Beat the egg yolk with a little drop of water and use this egg wash to brush the piggies with. Do this with a soft brush.

  9. Bake the piggies in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the pastry is cooked and the sausage rolls are nicely golden on top. Then remove them from the hot oven and let them cool a little. Place them on a serving plate together with the dipping sauce of your choice. Serve the piggies lukewarm.
