My kids love sausage rolls, I’m not particularly mad about them. No reason, they’re just not my favourite things. In the early days of my pregnancy though I ate LOADS of the things although when I went to the shop and bought them hot I had to buy some for the kids as well so it ended up costing us a fortune and my sausage roll addiction had to be curbed. I think they were something like 50c each which does add up when you have a few to buy for.
I’ve made sausage rolls myself before and we always loved them. A few days ago we were talking about “all the lovely things mammy USED to make…” and I got an attack of the guilts. I went to the supermarket and bought a roll of puff pastry (I don’t make my own, I’m lazy) a packet of sausages and a jar of wholegrain mustard. I sometimes buy cocktail sausages but usually just buy regular sausages and cut them in half with (clean) scissors.
The 8 year old LOVES to help making these so once we got home we began to assemble them and in less than 15 minutes we had a lovely baking tray ready to go into the oven.
And how did they turn out? Well we had delicious homemade sausage rolls in the amount of time it used to take us to get organised, find my purse, into the car, drive to shops and drive home, find plates and eat.
So so simple and oh so good.
Roll of puff pastry
Jar wholegrain mustard
pack cocktail sausages / ordinary sausages
1. Preheat the oven to 180c
3. Spread a thin layer of mustard all over the pastry and place the sausages on top.
4. Gently cut the pastry into squares and roll them up to look like sausage rolls.
5. Pinch the edges together and roll in lightly beaten egg.
6. Bake on a lined baking tray and pop them into the oven for 20 minutes. Until sausages are cooked through and pastry is golden brown.
