The humble sausage roll..

Who doesnt like sausage rolls?

These were made for my husband’s lunch. I only took a small bite : )

Quick, easy, delicious and cheaper than pre-made.

Takes about 5 mins to make and about 15 mins baking.

You will need:

Approx 3  sausages (remove skin)

2-3 sheets of puff pastry (I love pampas brand)

One egg and a few tablespoons of milk for an egg wash (optional)

Some sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

Method:

Lay approx 1.5 sausages (depending on the size you want) to half a sheet of pastry.

Roll over and seal edges well by pressing together.

A tip for dealing with puff pastry is to never thaw it too much. Once it is out of the fridge and no longer feels cold, you will have to work quikly, otherwise it becomes very sticky and soft. If this happens return to the fridge for a few mins.

To make the eggwash: beat one egg with about 3 tablespoons of milk. Brush onto rolls and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

You can brush with egg wash twice. Cut rolls into desired size

Bake in a preheated 180-200 C oven until sausages and pastry is cooked. Make sure oven temp isnt too hot otherwise the pastry will burn before the meat is cooked.

Enjoy with your favourite sauce!
