For years now my family has been making sausage rolls to have at family occasions. They go with drinks. They go as a pre lunch or dinner appetiser. They just go. And teamed up with some tomato relish they are taken to another level of yumminess. And the people, the people LOVE them. But the thing is, they are SO simple to make that I am a little ashamed to show you how they are made. I rolled them out Sunday lunch for the kids and thought I would share them with you. You’re welcome.
Easy Peasy Cheaty Sauso Rolls
: Pack of thin sausages
: Few sheets of puff pastry
: 1 egg for brushing
First you get some old sheets of puff pastry from the bottom of your freezer and defrost them. Mix your egg up for brushing which will literally be in a minute.
Take the skins off all of your sausages. It always makes me go eeeeeeew.
Cut the puff pastry into 2 main bits (it just doesn’t quite cut into three so cut into 2 and throw away the excess). Place sausage mixture (stretching it out as you go) along the bottom of the pastry.
Get someone small to roll them for you. A 4 year old would be perfect for the job.
Then cut them into small pieces and place on a tray. Get someone small to help with this two. A 4 year old will do.
As will an almost 2 year old. They really like to help out.
Brush with the egg mixture and chuck into a hot oven (around 200 degrees) until they are golden brown. Say 15 mins…
And then? Well try to remember to take a photo of the finished product. I forgot this step because I had just rolled 2 glasses of champagne in short succession. Serve with tomato sauce for the kids or tomato relish for the grown ups.
