Sausage rolls!

For no other reason than I had a craving for a nice crispy sausage roll. And I remembered these nice ones they used to sell in Baker’s Oven which had a lattice top and pickle through the middle. So I made some like that 🙂 These are absolutely peasy because they don’t use anything home made (I know, shock horror), but I promise they are wayyyy better than just getting them from a packet. We did, however, have a bit of difficulty deciding what to have them with- potato? We ended up having them with baked beans. Not really substantial enough for William, I feel…

Sausage rolls

(Makes 8 – total cost ÂŁ1.55, 20p per sausage roll)

1/2 packet (250g) ready made (but not ready rolled) puff pastry

1/2 packet (250g) pork sausagemeat

Small chunk pickle

1 small onion

Finely chop the onion and mix in with the sausagemeat.

Roll out the pastry into a rectangle, fairly thin (a few mm) and mark into 8 rectangles.

Shape the sausagemeat mixture into the right length for one of the rectangles. Put a line of pickle beside it (I think they would have been good with even more pickle, perhaps spread the pastry with it completely then lay the sausagemeat on top)

It should look something like this:

Brush one end of the pastry with milk, roll it all up together and lay it on a tray. Crimp the ends slightly with your fingers to stop the pickle oozing out too much. Make some shallow slits on the top of the roll, and brush with milk.

Cook until golden brown at about 200c for about 20-25 mins, and devour. Check them half way through, because mine grew so much a few ended up sticking together (naww), so you’ll need to separate them up again.
