Ingredients

Filling

  • 2 pounds ground lamb
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 slices crustless white bread
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper

Pastry

  • 3 sheets puff pastry (1 1/2 packs Pepperidge Farms frozen sheets)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Sesame seeds, untoasted

Instructions

  1. Thaw puff pastry sheets to room temperature, and preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Make fresh bread crumbs by putting slices of bread through a blender or food processor. Combine lamb, eggs, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Roll pastry into flat sheets and cut into long, wide strips. (If using Pepperidge Farms sheets, cut in half.)
  4. Place filling into sausage-shaped lines down the center of the pastry strips. Roll pastry over the top to enclose and then turn upside down so the seam is underneath. Cut meat-filled tubes into 6 portions and place on a nonstick baking tray. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  6. Serve with ketchup.
