Sausage Rolls

We're having a little old fashioned tea party on Friday afternoon so I have made some sausage rolls and popped them in the freezer(after Joe and I had 3 each for quality control purposes you see).

You'll need for 48 mini rolls...

4 sheets of frozen puff pastry
750 gms of minced pork or beef or a mixture
2 thick slices of bread, crumbed
1 large egg(I used a duck egg)
3-4 tablespoons of tomato sauce( a splash of worcester sauce too)
half a grated zucchini or carrot
salt and pepper
an egg or milk to glaze

preheat oven 200C

I used the food processor to make the breadcrumbs and then placed them in mixing bowl with the grated vegetable.
Then I processed  together the meat, sauces and egg and a little milk, salt and pepper to get a fairly smooth consistency.
Mix well with the breadcrumbs and then divide the mixture into 8 even sized portions.
Cut the pastry sheets in half and using a portion of meat roll it up and seal the edge with a little water.
Cut each log into six and place on prepared baking tray.
 Brush with a little beaten egg or milk.
Bake for around 20 minutes until gold brown...I turned my tray around after 10minutes as the back of this oven is hotter than the front.

Enjoy hot or cold and they do freeze very well. You could use sweet chilli sauce for a hotter taste and add cheese or chopped bacon etc.

The Grocery Challenge is still happening but I've realised I've been cheating as I forgot to add the cost of our milk etc from Aussie Farmers Direct. Keeping it under $100 a week still sounds too much but I know that some weeks it's a lot less than that and we are eating very well.

Bye bye for now

  4. Those looks so good. The recipe seems pretty easy to do and it's a nice savory treat.
    That bunny is adorable!!! We have cats, now I am wondering if one can potty train a bunny. How does it works? Have a great day Sue!!

  5. Hi Angela, thank you for your is how to train rabbits, they're not quite as good/clean at this as cats but if you don't mind a little mess then that's OK too

  6. Yum, for some reason I have never thought of making my own. Will have to change that.
