I love this recipe idea as it has a lovely home made feel to it, but actually most of the hard work has been done for you! They taste so much better than the shop bought versions and you don’t have to mess about with trying to make puff pastry- it’s a labout of love…
My favourite sausage stuffing mix to use for this is the Waitrose apricot one but it wasn’t available on my last shop, I think they may only do it around seasonal occasions (Christmas, Easter etc…).
This is a really good recipe for picnics, packed lunches, harvest teas (if you’re a farmer you’ll know what I mean) but it also is really quick and simple if you have people popping over and looks very impressive!
- 1 roll of puff pastry
- 1 packet of sausage stuffing
- Unroll your puff pastry sheet and cut it in half lengthways so you have two long pieces
- Prepare a beaten egg to use as an egg wash
- Egg wash your pieces of pastry
- Cut your stuffing mix in to four lengthways (my fave is the Waitrose apricot stuffing mix)
- Two pieces of meet should fit lengthways inside your pastry sheets
- Pull the two sides of the sheet up to meet at the top and pinch together
- Cut to your desired length (about 2 inches makes about 15)
- Egg Wash your sausage rolls
- Cook on a hot oven - puff pastry only likes a really hot oven! 200 C Fan for 15- 20 minutes
- If you do bigger rolls that I have they may take a bit longer to cook!
