As you know, my Mother is a great baker! She is also of the era that never wastes anything. These sausage rolls were made from leftover pastry for a pie and they make a wonderful lunchtime treat. These lasted exactly five minutes – thank you Richard – but they did get a very good review!
- 250g sausage meat
- 6oz flour
- 3 oz Trex white fat
- Salt, pepper and herbs
How to make
- Season the sausage meat well to taste.
- Mix the Trex and flour together until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add water a little at a time until the pastry is a nice ball of dough. Roll out thinly and cut into rectangles. Add a strip of sausage meat down the middle of each rectangle. Using a pastry brush dampen one edge with some water and fold over the pastry, pressing firmly to seal in the sausage.
- If you want to you can wash the top of the sausage roll with an egg wash (mix one egg yolk with a little water). Place the sausage rolls on an oiled baking sheet in an oven at 190 degrees and bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown.
