    2 shallots

    finely chopped

  • small white mushrooms icon
    2 oz small white mushrooms


  • pork sausage icon
    8 oz pork sausages
  • chopped sage icon

  • truffle oil icon
    1 tbsp truffle oil


  • kosher salt icon
    ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper icon

    to season

  • sheet frozen puff pastry icon
    2 sheets frozen puff pastry

    just thawed, approximately 10-inches x 14-inches

  • large egg yolk icon
    3 large egg yolks


  • 1Heat a medium frying pan over high heat. Add the olive oil and shallots. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 2 minutes, or until just soft. Add the mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and cool slightly.
  • 2Remove and discard the skins from the sausages. Add the sausage meat, sage and 2 teaspoons of the truffle oil to the mushroom mixture, season with salt and pepper and mix with your hands to combine.
    Tip: Cook a small amount of the filling in a frying pan to check the seasoning.
  • 3Roll the filling into 6 even balls.
  • 4Place 1 sheet of pastry on a tray lined with parchment paper. Brush the pastry with some of the egg yolks and dock with a fork. Place the balls on the pastry, approximate 2-inch apart.
    Tip: Use the best quality puff pastry you can find. A local bakery often sells fresh puff pastry. If the pastry becomes too soft, place it in the fridge to firm up.
  • 5Place the remaining sheet of pastry on top and gently press down over each ball. Use the back of a 2½-inch round cookie cutter to seal each pithivier, taking care not to cut through the pastry. Refrigerate for 15 minutes, to chill and firm up the pastry.
  • 6Insert the wire rack into position 6. Set the oven to Bake, Convection, 375°F, for 22 minutes and press Start to preheat. Meanwhile, continue to the next step.
  • 7Cut out each pithivier with a 3½-inch round cookie cutter. Working with one at a time, place on a piece of parchment and brush with some of the egg yolk. Use a knife to score and seal the edge and decoratively mark the top. Place on the parchment lined pizza pan and continue with the remaining pithiviers, refrigerating between each one.
  • 8Once preheated, place the pithiviers in the oven and cook for 22 minutes.
  • 9The pastry should be golden and crisp and the bases well colored. If not, cook them a little longer.
  • 10Brush pithiviers with the remaining 1 teaspoon truffle oil and serve.
