Meat Sausage Rolls

Pastry Ingredients

  • 160g Pastry Mix
  • 70g butter (chilled)
  • 80mls iced water
  • 10ml vinegar
  • 1 Egg for brushing

Filling Ingredients

  • 1kg beef sausage mince (you can use any fresh minced meat or meat substitute of your choice if preferable)
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, grated (peeled if you wish)
  • 1 Egg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Any chopped herbs or dried spices to your taste

Method - Pastry

  1. Measure flour and add to a good bowl. Add butter chunks one by one from freezer and rub into flour with fingertips until all butter is rubbed in. If you want a lighter and flakier pastry, leave some butter in smaller chunks.
  2. Add the iced water and vinegar to the mixture and mix in. If mixture is still wet, add 1 tbsp. of flour at a time until mixture comes together.
  3. Wrap pastry in Clingfilm (Gladwrap) and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes

Method - Filling

  1. Preheat oven to 180c
  2. Add sausage mince, grated vegetables, chutney and seasonings.
  3. Combine all together very well, ready for filling rolls.
  4. You can sauté the veggies with a little seasoning and olive oil if you prefer, prior to combining. This adds a more caramelised texture and flavour.
  5. When ready to use, roll pastry out thinly (3-4mm), dusting with a little flour. It helps to roll out on some bake sheet.
  6. Cut edges so you have a rectangle shape, ready to add roll filling to centre in a sausage shape.
  7. Once you add filling, you can lift the bake sheet, turning the pastry over and rolling, so that the pastry seam is at the bottom.
  8. Brush roll with well whisked egg if desired.
  9. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds if desired.
  10. Cut into your preferred roll length.
  11. Bake at 180C for 25mins or until cooked through and golden.
