Step 1Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat lightly with cooking spray.
Step 2Coat a large, preferably nonstick, skillet with cooking spray, and cook the onion until softened but not brown, about 3 minutes.
Step 3Add the sausages and mushrooms and cook, crumbling the sausage. Cook until no liquid remains, but mixture is still moist.
Step 4Divide dough into 8 pieces. Oil hands with vegetable or olive oil and pat out the dough into 5-inch circles and place on a clean work surface.
Step 5Combine the sausage mixture with the cheese in a bowl. Divide the filling evenly and place in the center of each round of dough.
Step 6Pull up the edges to form a round bun, and pinch the seams together.
Step 7Place the buns at least 1/2 inch apart on the greased baking sheet with seam side down.
Step 8Brush each bun with egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Step 9Dip a sage leaf into the egg and place on top of each bun.
Step 10Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving. Note: Buns can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated in a toaster oven.
