Homemade sausage rolls


1kg sausage mince

1/2 onion

1 potato

1 carrot

250g cheese (i do use reduced fat cheese)

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tbs dried chives

1 tbs dried parsley

1 egg

puff pastry (at least 6 sheets)

milk to brush over pastry

Pre-heat your oven to 200c

Grate onion, potato, carrot and cheese

In a large bowl add sausage mince, grated ingredients, chives, parlsey and egg and mix thoroughly with your hands

Slice a sheet of pastry in half horizontally and along the edges of both halves, spread a 'log' of the mixture approx an inch and a half wide

Brush a little milk along the center cut line

Carefully fold your 'log' of mixture with its pastry base over and continue to roll it until it reaches the center cut

Do the same for the other side

Brush both rolls with milk and cut in half, and in half again to make 4 per roll. ( you can make them smaller or larger as you'd like

Coat a baking tray with cooking spray and places your sausage rolls on the tray

Place tray on top shelf and cook for 15 - 20 mins or until golden brown

Repeat steps 4-8 with the rest of the pastry sheets
