Sausage Rolls Recipe

Sausage Rolls make for a great weekend, lunchtime snack or are great for a party treat. Here in Australia they go well with tomato sauce. Also in Australia they are not made with sausage meat, however they are made from ground beef mince. So I guess we call them sausage rolls for their shape and not their content. Please enjoy, oh and careful with the puff pastry as the crumbs will go everywhere while you are munching.

Ingredients:

500g (1 pound) ground beef mince

1 onion, grated or diced

1 cup breadcrumbs

1 cup tomato sauce

½ teaspoon dried mixed herbs

¼ teaspoon ground white pepper

2 sheets of puff pastry

Method:

Preheat your oven to 220 degC (430 degF).

Combine all the ingredients (except for the puff pastry sheets) into a bowl and mix with clean hands. Using your hands form a row of mixture along the top length of each pastry sheet (use more or less pastry sheets depending on the size of sausage roll that you want to create).

Roll the pastry over the row of mixture and overlap at the bottom of the roll by about 15mm (1/2 inch). Now cut the excess pastry away from the sausage roll with a sharp knife and place this 'long' sausage roll onto a greased baking tray.

Cut this 'long' sausage roll into individual sausage rolls at your desired length. Spray the top surface with olive oil and with a fork prick the top of each sausage roll. Now repeat this process for each of your pastry sheets.

Also try creating shapes, like twists, with the off cuts of pastry and also place on baking tray (remember to oil the top to prevent burning).

Bake in your oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown on top, and serve with tomato sauce.

Makes approx. 8 large sausage rolls or 16 regular sized sausage rolls.

As an alternative why not try chopping up some flat leaf parsley or adding some canned peas to the mix. You could also try adding diced carrots or diced can potatoes with this mix. (Note, with the canned potatoes they are already soft and will not need extra cooking in the 20 to 25 minute baking process).

Also you could add half a cup of tomato sauce with half a cup of barbecue sauce as an alternative to one cup of tomato sauce.

Finally you could also add a dash of Worcestershire Sauce or Tabasco Sauce to the mixture for an extra lift!

      Thanks akirchner, I would have never thought about using bread dough, that would be quite an interesting combination. For me buying frozen puff pastry sheets is quick and simple, but I'll have to give bread dough a try one day.
