I always make these Christmas Eve as I just love the tradition of it. We have so many delights, glazed ham, mulled wine, chocolate log, prosciutto puffs, mince pies it wouldn’t be Christmas without them.
Give these pork and apple sausage rolls a try. The apple adds just the right amount of sweetness. They are so simple and what’s more there’s no need to faff about making your own pastry. Even Jamie Oliver buys a pack of ready roll now again and if it’s good enough for Jamie!
Makes approximately 16
1 pack ready roll puff pastry – remove from fridge 15 mins before at least
450g sausage meat
1 grated apple – peeled
1 small onion grated
Half teaspoon Salt
Half teaspoon Cracked black pepper
Egg – beaten to glaze
Puff of flour to roll out the pastry
Place your sausage meat in a large mixing bowl and grate in your onion and then apple. Add your salt and pepper and mix to combine.
Puff a little flour on your work surface and roll out your pastry. You need to make sure it’s been out the fridge for at least 15 minutes or it will be too hard to roll and snap.
When you’ve rolled a squarish shape cut in half so you have two long strips.
Place a sausage shape of sausage meat all the way down the middle of each strip, fold over and press to seal. Slice into slices a couple of inches thick.
Glaze with the beaten egg
Place each strip on a lined baking tray and place in the oven for approximately 20 minutes.
Remove, shake over a little salt and you will be in heaven.
