Sausage rolls – with added newness !

Sausage rolls with onion, sage and chestnut stuffing

I made two small changes to my standard sausage roll recipe today. First, I added chopped cooked chestnuts, which I can luckily find in my supermarket in vacuum-sealed packs, and used the puff pastry that comes in blocks rather than sheets. It means that there is a touch of sweetness in the sausage mix, and you can control the thickness of the pastry. I think the pastry:sausage ratio with thicker pastry = the best sausage rolls I’ve made. Our maths lesson for today is brought to you by my Mother in law’s awesome sausage rolls she always bakes loads of when we visit.

Ingredients

  1. 6 good quality pork sausages (or about 350g sausage meat from the butcher)
  2. 1 large onion, finely diced
  3. 1 handful sage leaves, chopped
  4. 150g cooked chestnuts, roughly chopped
  5. 1 block puff pastry, thawed at room temperature
  6. 1 egg, beaten

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C/390F
  2. Combine the sausage meat, onion, sage and chestnuts together in a large bowl
  3. Roll out the pastry to about 1/4 inch thick
  4. Place lines of the sausage meat along the length of the pastry, roll over and seal edges lightly
  5. Cut into 2 inch thick slices and place on to a wire rack over a oven-proof tray and brush with the beaten egg
  6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown
