Recipe – Simple Party Sausage Rolls

Simple Party Sausage Rolls
When I was a kid, Mum often had homemade sausage rolls waiting for us as an afterschool snack. She’d pop them in the oven when she left to pick us up from school – and they’d be hot and golden brown ready for us to devour when we arrived home. This is my tribute to those quick, delicious childhood treats. Mum used plain sausage mince, but there’s such a variety of good quality sausages available today, you can mix it up a bit with any flavour you like. Serve these two-bite party sausage rolls with a glass of apple juice for an afterschool snack, or a cider, such as St Ronan’s from the Yarra Valley, if you prefer.

Makes about 14

Ingredients
  • 1 x 375g sheet butter puff pastry (see below)
  • Plain flour, for dusting
  • 550g Italian pork sausages, skinned
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Tomato ketchup, for serving 

I use Carême butter puff pastry; the bonus is it’s already the right dimensions and you can leave it on the plastic it’s wrapped in and use that plastic to wrap the rolls for refrigerating.
If you’re looking for something slightly more grown up … try my Spicy Lamb Sausage Rolls. They are delicious!

Method
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Place pastry on a lightly floured work bench and roll out to 27cm x 35cm.
  3. Cut pastry in half lengthways.
  4. Form half the sausage meat into an even log along the length of the pastry leaving about a 2cm border closest to you.
  5. Repeat with remaining sausage meat and second strip of pastry.
  6. Brush all exposed pastry with egg.
  7. Starting with the strip of pastry furthest from you, fold the pastry border onto the filling, then roll away from you to tightly enclose the filling. Repeat with the other strip of pastry.
  8. Wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to firm up.
  9. Trim ends and cut into 5cm lengths.
  10. Place, seam side-down, on a baking paper-lined oven tray, make a diagonal cut in the top of each one and brush with egg.
  11. Bake for about 30 minutes, until well-coloured and cooked through.
  12. Serve hot with tomato ketchup.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are Ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
