Pork and Herb Sausage Rolls

June 30, 2017

A summer favourite with my family, these puff pastry sausage rolls will make a great addition to any picnic or barbeque. What a difference a little bit of homemade pastry makes - filled with high quality sausage meat and of course some fresh herbs, I also like to add a touch of paprika to give a little kick to this quick and easy bake!

 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

For the Pastry

-  250g Plain flour

- 250g Cold Butter

- 90ml Cold water

 

For the Filling

- Sausagemeat from 8 large sausages (with skins removed)

- 1.5tsp Paprika

- 2tsp Chopped fresh rosemary

- 2tsp Chopped fresh Sage

- 2tsp Chopped fresh Thyme

- A pinch of Salt

- A few grinds of black pepper

-  1 egg (beaten)

 

 

METHOD

 

- For the pastry rub together the flour and butter together slightly so that the streaks of butter are still visable.

 

- Cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

 

- Remove the pastry from the fridge, place on a floured surface and knead into a rectangular shape before rolling lengthways (only one direction)  until the pastry is three times its original length.

 

- Fold the top third down to the middle and fold the bottom third up to the middle.

 

- Turn the pastry 90 degrees clockwise and roll out again and repeating the folding method.

 

- Wrap the folded rectangle in clingfilm and refrigerate until ready to use.

 

- Prepare the sausage by adding all the herbs and spices and combining thoroughly.

 

- Roll the pastry into a 30 x 20 cm rectangle and cut down the middle lengthways to leave two strips of pastry 30 x 10cm in size.

 

- Divide the sausagemeat into two portions and place a layer of the meat onto the middle of the strip of pastry before brushing with your egg (eggwash) on one edge of the pastry.

 

- Fold the other side onto the eggwashed pastry and push down using your fingers to seal the pastry together.

 

- Brush with remaining eggwash and bake for 30 minutes at 190 degrees (fan).

 

- Serve hot or cold.
