Brush a light layer of mustard on one side of the cut out pieces of dough.
Sprinkle each piece of dough with cheddar cheese.
Place one sausage on each piece of dough and roll to wrap. Transfer the rolls onto te prepared baking sheet with seem side down.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks until well combined, then brush each biscuit roll with the egg yolks.
