Sausage rolls

Postby Shadowgirlau » Thu Feb 18, 2010 7:52 pm

This is what I do -

Depends what type of sausage rolls I want to make when it comes to type of meat i use so this differs according to ones tastes or likes.

Pork Sausage rolls

350 gm minced pork
at least one sliced or finely chopped apple
a half finely chopped onion
salt and pepper
1 egg (beaten)
Dijon Mustard
approx 4 sheets puff pastry

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Mix together all the above ingredients.
Unfold the puff pastry sheets, and cut along the fold lines of each sheet to form 6 equal squares for a total of 12 squares. Brush each square with mustard. Divide sausage mix into 12 pieces, and roll into small logs. Place one log on each square. Roll dough around the sausage mixture, and seal with a bit of beaten egg. Place rolls onto an ungreased baking sheet, and brush the tops with the rest of the egg.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the rolls are puffed and golden. I usually watch after 10 minutes or so to make sure they don't burn. These freeze (unbaked) very well.

Beef Sausages, much the same except I don't use mustard with these or of course apple. I also may add grated carrot and grated potatoe to either mixes.

Enjoy - Kathleen

Was looking for something to dish up to DH today that was going to be easy and tasty. As he loves these sausage rolls I thought I would take out a couple of them to cook but alas my stash of quick meals to make in ready and waiting in the freezer is bare! :oops: I know what is going to be in my future :lol:

Hi Kathleen,

I've done the same with spinach and ricotta rolls, made them up and then freeze them... so easy to take out of the freezer (I give them a spray with olive oil) pop into the oven and done.

Must do some sausage rolls in a couple of months.
:D

Desley, I just process fresh spinach squeeze it out, throw in ricotta, pepper, lemon zest and mix and put into puff pastry... from little bite size to bigger... quick and easy and freeze well. I don't do measurement, whatevers a fair thing. ;)

I'm going to try Kathleen's as well. Funny how you read these then forget until they're brought up again. ;)

That ricotta and spinach sounds nice Vicki so it is going onto my list of quick snacks for the freezer.

Hi Kathleen,

I did them for the craft ladies they all went. Then they wanted me to bring them for the Christmas lunch so I made the smaller ones at the same time and we had those for a snack with a drink or lunch (if we didn't feel like much).

I looked up so many recipes and in the end just threw the bits together I had and it works fine, and much quicker than many of the recipes.

Do you sometimes think that people think if it's a complicated recipe it must be good and a simple one it can't be any good? :roll:

Your probably onto something there Vicki,
I have often heard people say - I don't have time to make ... and it's then I will think, why not? If one does the preparation first as in knows what they are going to make and has everything out handy to make it then really it takes little time at all to do so.

Yep you seem to see it time and again, which is why I like recipes that are a base and you can build on them or not, hence I love Jamie Oliver, or I should say Jamie at Home and Ministry of Food. The Ministry of food gives a base for caseroles and then adds a few bit to make for beef, lamb, chicken and different lids it's great.

If every meal was a work of art and complicated we'd never be fed!
