Sausage Rolls with a Twist

1 May

So everyone loves sausage rolls, they are such tasty snacks, or if big enough a good lunch for all. These are amazingly tasty and a nice change from the usual, who knew that such a small change can make so much difference?! So for these I add my apple chutney and they are amazing!

Ingredients:
1 batch of rough puff pastry
500g Sausage meat
500g Apple chutney (roughly)
100ml Milk

Estimated time: 40 minutes

Directions:

Using the rough puff pastry (the recipe can be found by clicking here) roll it out to a large rectangle, roughly 3mm thick. If this isn’t thick enough then roll it out until you are happy with the thickness ๐Ÿ™‚ once the preferred thickness is achieved cut the pastry in half width ways and then into smaller sections which will make your sausage rolls. You should be able to cut it into at least 6 sections.

In a bowl weigh your sausage meat and mix up. Add a small amount of salt and pepper to this and mix well.

Once mixed place a spoonful of the sausage meat into the middle of each rectangle, try to make the amounts as equal as can be. If the is any mix left add it to the smallest one!

Now using your hands mush the sausage meat into a sausage shape length ways in the rectangles. Don’t worry if they aren’t the same shape or amounts no one will notice once they’re cooked ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been vague on the amount of chutney (the recipe can be found in my previous posts) because to be honest I don’t have a clue!! It really depends on how much chutney you want. I used a teaspoon and placed a spoonful all down the sausage so that it looked like an eclair. You can have as much chutney as you want.

Once you have decided your amount of chutney you need to brush the edges of the pastry with the milk. This will help seal the pastry together. Carefully bring one side over the sausage meat to the other one and carefully press the edges together.

Place the sealed sausage rolls onto a lined tray, using a fork press the edges together (not only does this help, but it looks pretty!). Using the pastry brush and milk cover the sausage rolls with milk, this will work as a glaze and make them nice and gold.

Bake these in the oven at 190c for roughly 20 minutes, be sure to check them at around 15 minutes just to check that they aren’t burning! They will be a nice golden colour when they’re cooked and the sausage meat will be nice and pink, if not too sure about the meat cut a small bit off and try it ๐Ÿ™‚

And there you have the tastiest sausage rolls that I’ve had in possibly my entire life!!!! These really do make a lunchtime ๐Ÿ™‚ hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!!!

    They look delicious. They kind of remind me of Sweeny Todd and Hot Meat Pies ๐Ÿ™‚
