Lesson 2 - Sausage Rolls

So as promised and requested by Mr Moo we made lesson two all about sausage rolls. I had my doubts about his ability with the skill level required to form sausage shapes and roll the pastry etc.. but he did fabulously.
Lunch was sausage rolls of course and he has been eating them just about every day since! I think next time we might need to add some more vegies to the mix so they are a bit healthier!
If you feel like giving them a try, here is the recipe.

Sausage Rolls

Makes 36


3 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
2 eggs lightly beaten
750gm minced sausage meat
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
80gm fresh breadcrumbs
3 tbsp parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp ground sage
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp sesame seeds

  • Preheat oven to 200 C, and line two trays with baking paper
  • Cut the pastry sheets in half and lightly brush the edges with some of the egg
  • To make the filling mix one egg with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl, you will need to use your hands for this!
  • Divide into six even portions
  • Spoon the filling down the centre of each pastry piece in a sausage shape.
  • Brush the edges with egg and fold the pastry over, overlapping at the bottom
  • Cut each into six short pieces and place on the baking trays.
  • Brush with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds
  • Bake for 15 minutes then reduce the temperature to 180 C for another 15 minutes.
