Easy sausage rolls

Seriously these are the easiest sausage rolls I have ever made, you think the shop bought ones are good.... wait til you try these! Not only are they going to be freshly made (with love) they will have only the ingredients you put in them, no added bits that you're unaware of... ENJOY!

500g sausage mince (generally found in the meat section in your local supermarket)
1/2c sweet fruit chutney
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
2-3 sheets frozen puff pastry
1 egg, lightly whisked
1 tbs sesame or poppy seeds

Preheat oven to 220°C.

Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper or foil (if using foil, make sure you either spray with cooking spray or grease with butter/oil to stop the pastry from sticking).

Combine the sausage mince and fruit chutney in a bowl with salt and pepper.

Place one-third of the mince mixture down the longest edge of the pastry and roll to enclose and form a log. Use a little of the whisked egg to help secure the pastry.

Brush the top of the pastry with the rest of the egg and sprinkle the seeds.

Cut the roll into bite sized slices (either straight or diagonally if you're being fancy) and place rolls on the lined tray. 

Repeat with remaining mince mixture and pastry. 

Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden and the sausage mince is cooked though. Serve with sauce of choice. 


I like to add grated tasty cheese to the top of my sausage rolls for something a little different or sometimes (if I'm feeling extra naughty) I put a layer of cheese on top of the sausage meat before I roll the pastry around it so you get this lovely cheesy hit when you bite into the sausage roll.

Just an idea :)
