Easy Sausage Rolls

mumof2.com_sausagerollsIf like me, you prefer the easy route to cooking or baking, why not give these cheat easy sausage rolls.

You will need :

  • Shop bought pre-rolled puff pastry
  • Shop bought chipolata sausages (or just standard uncooked sausages – meat of your choice) mumof2.com_sausages
  • Baking tin/sheet
  • Some tin foil / baking paper
  • A sharp knife

Step 1 : Preheat the oven to 190 degrees

Step 2 : unroll the puff pastry to the desired quantity – I don’t always need a full roll depending on how many sausage rolls I want to makemumof2.com_pastryStep 3 : Place lengths of sausage onto the pastry leaving enough space between each line that allows you to roll a layer of pastry over each sausage.

Step 6: Complete the roll and cut into sections dabbing a bit of milk on the top of each little roll to give it a nice brown finish. If you use beaten egg it will be a bit glossier.

Step 7: Pop them into the oven for about 20 mins

Hints and tips :

  1. You can make your own puff pastry, or the shop bought cheat version
  2. You don’t have to use pork sausages – lamb, beef or chicken will also make for tasty treats. I would however discourage viennas but by all means- try them if you like.
  3. Beaten egg would provide a nicer finish – but if you, like me, didn’t have any eggs to hand – milk does just about the same job without the sheen.
  4. Don’t forget to turn the oven off and check that the sausage rolls are not too hot for the kids when serving!
