The thing about parties, at least in my house, is that they are just not the same without a plate of sausage rolls. Warm or cold, these little morsels of meat and pastry delights are the first thing I aim for on the buffet table, and the last thing I want to leave. One problem is that the shop-bought ones can be mean and nasty – an insult to the beauty that is this party treat. The alternative, mixing this and butter flaking pastry that, can be daunting and I am more than happy to cook something that has the homemade flavour without the chef effort. So here it is, the homemade cheat’s sausage roll.
- 1 pkt very good butter puff pastry
- 2 butcher made sausages (the choice of sausage is in your hands!)
- 1 beaten egg for brushing to seal and coat the finished rolls.
Pre heat the oven to 180c
Roll out the pastry.
Remove the sausages from their skin, and roll the sausage meat thin enough for that sausage roll bite size you like.
Lay the rolled meat onto the pastry and using the egg wet the edges and roll the pastry over covering the sausage meat. Seal and cut into sausage roll bites. Snip the tops of the sausage rolls and brush with the beaten egg. Repeat until you have used all the pastry and sausage and bake in the oven until nice and golden
