These Little Sausage Rolls Make A Great Change Of Pace
Made from a flat head pastry which is all the rage on the internet these days. This pastry in incredibly low in carbs, is gluten free,wheat free and grain free. It is made from cheese, cream cheese, an egg, and either almond or coconut flour. This pastry can also be flavored many ways depending on what in is being used for (makes a great cinnamon roll).
When buying the sausages, read the label, some sausages have rice for a filler and are not as low in carbs. You want a sausage meat that is all meat if possible.
