Sausage Rolls

Sausage rolls are a perfect afternoon snack. They are easy to make and are a hit with the kids.

 

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) milk
  • 500g pork and veal or chicken and herb sausages
  • ½ small onion, chopped
  • 1 egg, plus 1 extra egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, just thawed
  • Sesame seeds, to sprinkle
  • Tomato sauce, to serve

 

Method:

Step 1  Combine breadcrumbs and milk in a bowl and set aside until milk is absorbed. Remove casings from sausages and place in a food processor with crumbs, onion and egg. Process until well combined, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to chill.

Step 2  Place a sheet of pastry on a lightly floured surface and cut horizontally into two. Spoon a quarter of the mixture along the centre of each piece of pastry. Fold over a long side of pastry, brush with egg, then fold other side over to enclose, slightly overlapping in the centre, and make a long sausage shape. Repeat with remaining pastry and filling to make 4 rolls.

Step 3  Place rolls, seam side down, on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Cover and refrigerate for ½ hour until firm.

Step 4  Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Carefully diagonally cut each roll into seven. Brush with remaining egg and place on baking tray. Use a sharp knife to make 2 small slits on top of each roll (to prevent rolls from splitting) and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Step 5  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and puffed. Serve warm with tomato sauce.
