How to make homemade sausage rolls

Step 1

Place all the filling ingredients into a bowl and combine thoroughly.

Step 2

Lay your pastry out on your kitchen counter and cut in half lengthways. Then cut each half into three so you have six squares in total.

Step 3

Split your filling into six and place a portion down the centre of each pastry square.

Step 4

Fold one half of the pastry over the sausage meat. Brush with a little beaten egg and fold the other half of the pastry up to form a seal.

Step 5

Place onto your lined baking tray with the fold side down.  Brush with egg wash and score the tops with a knife.

Step 6

Place into an oven at 170°C (150°C fan/gas mark 4) for 30–35 minutes until golden and risen.
