I love a good sausage roll from the bakery however they don’t love me. I’m not sure if it is the sausage mince or the pastry however I can tell you it’s not pretty.
There was no sausage mince in sight for this recipe and guess what? No heart burn!
When thinking about food for a party, sausage rolls are so easy and definitely easy on the pocket. What you don’t cook, you can freeze. Win win!
Here are two recipes, one using beef and the other, chicken.
Beef Sausage Rolls
(makes about 60)
5 sheets puff pastry
1 kg beef mince
1 onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
20 grams butter
3 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
3 tablespoons plain flour
3 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons allspice
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius, fan forced.
Cut the pastry sheets in half.
Cook the onion and garlic in the butter until the onion has softened. Allow to cool.
Once the onion mixture has cooled, combine with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
Spoon the mixture down the centre of each piece of pastry leaving a small gap at each end. The mixture will spread when you slice it into the portions.
Brush the edges of the pastry with water and then fold the pastry over the filling making sure to overlap the edges. Cut into 6 portions.
Place on a tray, folded side down, covered with baking paper and lightly spray with cooking oil.
Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes.
Chicken Sausage Rolls
(makes about 60)
1 kg chicken mince
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely grated
2 tablespoons fruit chutney
2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
2 teaspoons ginger, minced
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius, fan forced.
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl.
Prepare and fill the pastry as you did for the beef sausage rolls.
Place on a tray (folded side down) covered with baking paper and lightly spray with cooking oil.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
That’s it! These are yummy and a definite crowd pleaser.
Have you got a filling that you use when making sausage rolls?
