My mum is famous for her sausage rolls and tends to get orders for them from us kids all the time. Being interstate I decided to try and make my own with my own little original stamp on them and my sausage rolls have become a favourite in my house, plus they make a great lunch or snack over the weekend. I keep them in the freezer and just take out what I need and pop them in the oven. My recipe below is for one batch and the number of them will vary because you can cut them to whatever size you like. I tend to make small ones so they are snack size and easier for the kids to eat.
1 packet of sausage mince (I use beef but my mum likes pork so whatever you fancy)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 onion very finally chopped or grated (you don't want onion chunks so the smaller the better)
2 tbsp bread crumbs (I use stuffing mix because it has herbs and is tastier)
1 egg beaten
3 sheets of puff pastry cut in half
Combine mince, garlic, onion, breadcrumbs and eggs and mix well. Best is with your hands so pull those sleeves up and get in there!
Make some egg mixture using 1 egg and a drop of milk beaten together and brush the sides of each puff pastry half.
Split your mixture up so it can be evenly spread on the pastry sheets. Lay the sausage mixture onto one side of the pastry pressing it into a log shape and then roll the pastry over the top to combine the ends. I put where the sides have connected face down onto the oven tray so they don't come apart during cooking. Finish by brushing over the sausage roll with egg mixture and cut to the size you like. For me, I cut them into 4 pieces but you can do 2 or leave them as one long one.
Repeat with each piece of puff pastry, placing them onto an oven tray (put some baking paper underneath) and cook at 180 degrees celsius for about 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.
