MINI SAUSAGE ROLLS


This is a firm favourite in my house at anytime. So easy to prepare. I usually make a batch to freeze, so there is always something to cook when unexpected quests arrive or whenever the kids feel like nibbling.

MINI SAUSAGE ROLLS

Makes 16

 

Ingredients:

500g ready-made puff pastry

Flour for dusting

1 egg, beaten

8 good quality sausages cut into two

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Small handful fresh thyme leaves

 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200C

Roll the pastry out on a floured surface to a rectangle of about 48x32cm.

 

Cut the large rectangle in half lengthways, then cut both smaller rectangles into eight equal sections. You now have 16 rectangles in total. Brush one end of each rectangle with a little of the beaten egg, lay a piece of sausage at the other end, then season the sausage with salt and freshly ground black pepper and sprinkle with thyme leaves. Roll the sausage up in the pastry to enclose and repeat with all the sausages. Put the sausage rolls in the fridge for 20 minutes for the pastry to harden.

Once the pastry is hard, remove the sausage rolls from the fridge and score the tops with a sharp knife for decoration, or prick with a fork. Brush well all over with the rest of the beaten egg and bake in the oven for 25–30 minutes, or until the pastry has turned golden-brown and looks crisp. Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly before serving.

 

Variation:

Use viennas (Frankfurters) instead of the sausage
