  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg ground
  • 1 cup Mozzarella shredded

Instructions

  • Spread mixture evenly over the pastry sheets.
  • Starting at a short side, roll up the dough like a jelly roll.  
  • Cut into about 12 (1-inch) slices.
  • Place the slices, cut-side down, onto 2 baking sheets.  Brush the slices with the egg mixture.

  • Serve immediately or keep warm on a warming tray.
