This is a post I never thought I would write. My cooking and baking abilities are not to a high standard but I really do try! I love to cook and bake and its something I would love to get better at. One thing I fell like I have really mastered is these super easy home made sausage rolls and I am super excited to share my recipe with you!
I will warn you now, I am terrible at explaining this but I am hoping I make sort of sense haha!
You Will Need:
- Puff Pastry
- 8 Sausages
- A dash of Milk
- Baking Paper
Gather all your ingredients together and preheat the oven to 200c. I always find that really Having everything I will need in front of me really helps me feel organised and creates an environment I can work better in.
Roll out your puff pastry so its around Half a CM thick and place it on a sheet of baking paper.Alternatively you could be incredibly lazy and buy pre-rolled out pastry that already comes on a baking sheet (this is what I did)
Remove the sausage skins and place the sausage meat into a bowl. I find the easiest way to do this is by using kitchen scissors and cutting the skins off. Once you have a bowl of sausage meat, mix the meat together (so they no longer look like sausages) and add a pinch of salt pepper and mix herbs. I love doing this but season to your taste.
Now its time to place the sausage meat onto the pastry. I start by placing little bits of sausage meat around 1cm away from the edge of the pastry and keep adding the meat along the pastry. To make a long sausage along the pastry. Then using your fingers and a little bit of milk dampen the pastry all the way along this will help the pastry to stick together.
Next step is to Roll the pastry over the sausage meat and cut of any pastry that is left.Using your fingers squash the two ends of pastry together to make sure its all sealed.Using a sharp Knife make cuts along the sausage I tend to make a cut every 4cm or so.
Place the sausage roll and baking paper on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 30mins on 200c. Finally when the sausage roll is cooked remove from the oven and while still hot cut into your bite size pieces I tend to use the cuts I made as a guide.
I hope you have been inspired to make your own sausage rolls! do not forget to send me pictures if you have recreated this recipe!
Cheerio For Now,
