Apple and red onion sausage rolls


We decided to do an afternoon tea for Mother’s Day this year and, as usual, I was chef for this occasion. I had never made sausage rolls before so I decided to give them a go and they were super easy and 10x more delicious than any store-bought ones. Braeburn apples provided both sweetness and sharpness but any apples would work well. I used readymade puff pastry for ease and after watching contestants making puff pastry on Bake Off I decided I didn’t want that stress!


Ingredients:

· Ready made puff pastry

· 400g Sausage meat

· 2 Braeburn apples, finely chopped

· 1 large red onion, finely chopped

· 2 teaspoons each of dried thyme, sage and rosemary

· Salt and pepper

· Around 2 tablespoon of butter

· 1 egg (for the egg wash)



· Pre heat the oven to 180 °C (gas oven)

· Start by finely chopping the apples and onion and fry them with the butter on a medium heat until they have softened slightly but have not browned. Let cool.

· Meanwhile, put the sausage meat in a bowl along with seasoning and the dried herbs.

· Once the apple and onion have cooled slightly, add into the sausage mix and combine together (getting in there and mixing with your hands is the best way.)

· Take your puff pastry and fill with the sausage mix, then fold the pastry over it, making sure the sausage mix is covered.

· Cut into portions (mine were around 5cm) and brush each one with egg wash.

· Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the sausage meat is cooked through. Let them cool slightly* (if you have enough will power) and serve them warm.

· Enjoy - although, be warned, they are pretty addictive ;)





*Little tip for while they cool: I recommend putting them on their side (like I am doing in the picture) while they cool to prevent the bottoms from going soggy due to the fat in the sausage meat.
