Sausage Rolls

Sausage Rolls always go down well here.  They are scrumptious either hot or cold and that tomato sauce is never far away.  Our daughter has been taking them to school to enjoy at lunchtime and I've also heated them up in the afternoon for a great after school snack.

Julie Goodwin's Sausage Rolls are our favourite.  This recipe also makes quite a large batch.  I had planned on freezing some however they didn't quite make it to the freezer. 

I made these with our daughter last weekend and it was such a special time together.  Not only is she learning new skills but she also commented on how relaxing it was and we had so much time to chat together.  We both thoroughly enjoyed it.

Such tasty little sausage rolls.

Here is a wonderful recipe.

1kg sausage mince
500g beef mince
2 brown onions, grated (aaaah our eyes were burning)
2 carrots, grated
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup French mustard
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon celtic salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
6 sheets frozen puff pastry
1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon of water

Preheat oven to 200℃.

Place all ingredients except the pastry and egg into a large bowl and thoroughly mix with your hands.  Our daughter loved this part.

Lay each pastry sheet out on the bench and cut each in half.
Divide the sausage mixture into 12.  I actually weighed the lot and then divided the total by 12 to make them all even.  Lay sausage mix in a line along the pastry sheets, fold over and gently press to join.

My little helper hard at work.

Turn the rolls over and cut in half and then half again.  This will leave you with 6 small pieces per roll.  Using dental floss (make sure it's plain and not flavoured) makes this so much easier.  Place a piece of floss under the log, hold the two ends up and cross over.

Holding the floss ends.

Now pull the two ends away from each other and the floss will easily and neatly slice through.  Once through hold one end of the floss and pull out from the side.

Pulling the two ends away from each other.
As we were both slicing the logs my daughter commented on how relaxing this was. 

Spread the pieces out onto two baking trays being careful not to overcrowd otherwise they will become a little soggy.  Brush with the egg and water mix.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden.

We had so much fun making these together.  They were certainly made with love.
