Traditional Home Made Sausage Rolls

I was impressed with the ease of the sausage roll recipe and the end result was so delicious. Not one person in the house could stop eating them, and when we had our fill, there were more to pop away in the freezer for another day. Who would ever settle for store bought sausage rolls after this?
Besides the amazing flavour, these sausage rolls freeze really well and are great for an afternoon snack...or pop them in the kids' lunchboxes! They'll love them.


500g lean mince beef
500g sausage mince`
2 onions, finely chopped or grated
2 eggs
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp. mixed herbs
1 tbsp. BBQ sauce
3 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
3 tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
3-4 sheets puff pastry, thawed

Preheat oven to 180C. Line and grease two baking trays.
Combine sausage and beef mince, onions, 1 egg, garlic, sauces, parsley, breadcrumbs, mixed herbs and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix until incorporated.
Cut each thawed pastry sheet in half. Brush each piece with the remaining beaten egg. Using a teaspoon, spoon a portion of mince mixture down the centre of each piece of pastry.
Roll the pastry over the mixture and press the edges to seal, leaving the ends open. With a sharp knife, cut the sausage rolls into four, then place on the trays seam side down. Brush with egg and lightly score the tops diagonally with a sharp knife.
Increase the heat of the oven to 250C, and cook the sausage rolls for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Serve with BBQ or tomato sauce.

Makes  24

NOTES: These are ideal for freezing and thawing as needed!
