Sausage Rolls

Sausage rolls always take me back to memories of high school lunch. My best friend and I would always split our lunch in half and share it. I would bring a chicken, lettuce and mayo sandwich while she would buy a sausage roll from the canteen. We still laugh at the thought now when we go out to eat and buy something we both like and share it, optimising on variety :) Only a select few really get me.

So now that I'm all grown up, I like to try and make my own, although they really don't compare to the ones we use to get. I miss that greasy over processed meat and onion (yes I could see the onions in them back then, which was probably the only "good" thing in them), but yes I have come a long way since then.

Sausage Rolls
250g chicken mince
250g pork mince
teaspoon oregano
teaspoon parsley
1 carrot (grated)
1 onion (grated)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
tablespoon worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
2 squares of puff pastry
egg wash, chia seeds (optional)


1. Bung all the ingredients in a large bowl (except for the pastry, egg wash and chia seeds) and mix it really well

2. Cut each pastry sheet in half. Spoon mixture into the centre of the cut pastry and shape it as you go to look like a long sausage (you should get about 5-6 long rolls)

3. Fold over the pastry, wetting it with water so it sticks better, and cut it into thirds
4. Place them seam side down, brush eggwash over the top and sprinkle with chia seeds.
Cook at 180 degrees for around 40mins

Gotta be quick, see those little fingers at the top coming for the rolls?
