1/2 cup green onions

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced

1 1/2 cups dry herb stuffing mix

Heat oven to 400 F.

In large bowl, combine sausage, syrup, beaten eggs, sliced green onions, diced apples and stuffing mix.

Dust surface with flour; roll out pastry sheet to 12-by-18-inch rectangle.

Transfer pastry to large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon half of sausage mixture down center of pastry.

Make 3-inch cuts down sides of pastry. Fold one strip at a time, alternating sides. Fold both ends to seal in filling. In bowl, beat egg whites and water; brush over pastry.

Repeat steps for second pastry sheet.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until brown, rotating pans after baking 15 minutes.
