SAUSAGE ROLLS

A family favourite recipe we’ve had for years – tried and tested many times over — these sausage rolls are guaranteed to make an appearance at every gathering and weekend get away.

What makes them so good? Real meat: no cutting corners using store-bought ground sausage mince. A bacon, pork and beef mixture make these next level with aromatics sautéed in bacon grease! This creates a nice and juicy filling that doesn’t dry out the next day.

THE MIREPOIX

The beginning of all great flavour starts with a mirepoix: an aromatic flavour base made by sautéing onions, celery, and finely shredded carrots in bacon grease to slowly draw out their natural sweet flavours. Many incredible recipes, like Beef Bourguignon for example, start off with a mirepoix, and the same can be done for Sausage Rolls.

HOW TO MAKE SAUSAGE ROLLS

Super easy and uncomplicated, you’re going to make your filling first:

Fry bacon in a skillet, then add onion, celery and carrot into the grease. Sauté for 2 minutes until veggies have softened slightly and released their flavours. Sauté the garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds), then transfer to bowl. Let mixture cool slightly, then mix into the rest of the filling ingredients. Spoon onto puff pastry sheet, roll, bake, DONE!

Good luck not eating any sausage rolls before anyone else does! Self control becomes non-existent!

Brushing the pastry with a simple egg wash creates that super crispy, golden crust sausage rolls are famous for in just 30 minutes.

They disappear so fast, get ready to fight for the last one! Especially when dunked in tomato sauce (or ketchup for our American readers).
