Extra special Sausage rolls

Makes 6-8

These sausage rolls are really easy to make and bake.  They freeze well for up to 2 months and can be enjoyed hot or cold.

1 Tsp. sunflower oil

1 small red onion, chopped

450g good quality pork sausage meat

3 Tbsps. chopped parsley

½ Tsp. truly lazy garlic, from a jar

Salt and pepper

1x 320g pack all- butter puff pastry sheet

2 Tbsps. Dijon mustard

1 medium egg, beaten

  •  Heat the oil in a medium frying pan and gently sauté the onion for about 6 minutes, until softened.  Empty into a large mixing bowl and set aside to cool.
  • Add the sausage meat, parsley, garlic and a generous seasoning of salt and pepper.  Mix well to combine.
  • Unroll pastry sheet onto a floured surface and brush all over with the mustard.  Dampen pastry edges with a little cold water.
  • Shape the sausage meat into a roll, lengthways down the middle of the pastry, but slightly to one side.
  • Fold one side of the pastry over the meat and press edges of pastry together, to seal.  Crimp with a fork or knock up edges with back of a table knife.  Crimp the edges.
  • Slice into 6 even sausage rolls.
  • Arrange on a baking sheet.  Chill for 10 minutes or so.
  • Pre-heat oven to 200C, 180C fan, Gas 6.
  • Brush sausages all over with beaten egg and bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Serve warm or cold.
