Homemade Sausage Rolls

Kathy's Homemade Sausage Rolls

Kathy's homemade sausage rolls are made with flavourful sausage filling, golden puff pastry and topped with a delicate layer of sesame seeds, making them perfect little appetizers for any occasion. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 pack VHL lamb and mint sausages 
  • 1 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 Tbs onion flakes 
  • 3 sheets of pampas puff pastry, thawed then each cut into half 
  • 2 Tbs milk or water 
  • 1 egg, whisked 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

The Victoria Hill Lamb Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180° fan-forced).
  2. Remove the meat from the sausage casings by making a shallow incision along the entire length of the sausage.and sliding the casing back along the sausage.'
  3. Place sausage meat into a bowl with onion flakes, onion powder, half the salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix well.
  4. To make the egg wash combine egg with milk and remaining salt. 
  5. Lay out a rectangle of pastry on a tray lined with baking paper. Set up so that the long edge of the rectangle is closest to you. Brush egg wash along one long edge.
  6. Get 1/6th of the filling and shape into a long log shape down the middle of the pastry. Ensure the meat is tight and compact without gaps.
  7. Roll the meat up into the pastry, finishing with the seam side down.
  8. Brush egg wash along the top of each log and sprinkle with sesame seeds. 
  9. Using a sharp knife, cut each log into equal lengths and bake for 30 - 35 minutes in total. If you have the time/patience, refrigerate for 1 hour before cutting them up. This makes it easier and neater!
  10. When sausage rolls are cooking and the pastry has browned, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly on trays. Serve warm with tomato sauce or relish.

Tip: Sesame seeds are a nice touch but not a must. These golden little sausage rolls get eaten so quickly no one will notice if the seeds are missing!
