Sausage rolls:

Food for the Soul (and the stomach) by Michelle W.                                                                       Tell us about your favourite meal, either to eat or prepare. Does it just taste great, or does it have other associations.

If I’d been asked this question earlier in my life I would definitely say a roast dinner; be that chicken, lamb, beef or pork. As a child the roast was a traditional meal that was cooked on Sundays whilst we were at church. It was the condiments that made it special, either: stuffing, apple- sauce, mint sauce or cranberry sauce. The associated memories of eating as a family brings back a flood of warm feelings.

These days our eating habits have changed to many simple but tasty recipes. Eating fresh fruit before the meal has become the norm. One simple recipe that my beloved adores is sausage-rolls.

left over cold ones!

  •  This takes three sheets of frozen pastry, cut in half, (as I’m a lazy cook these days).
  • Mix chicken or pork mince with a finely cut red onion, I grated carrot, herbs from the garden, a big dollop of honey and pepper and salt.
  • Divide mixture onto the 6 long pastry pieces, and add beaten egg to edge of one side.
  • Roll each long roll and divide into four and cut slices into top.
  • Apply egg to top of sausage rolls and pop into a hot oven until cooked. 200 degrees for 20 mins, depending on oven.
  • Eat with homemade relish and Bobs your uncle!

This is a simple meal, that can be made a little healthier with a salad.

    A favourite of ours too, Barbara. Sometimes when I’m feeling lazy I just peel sausages and roll them in the pastry sheets, but adding some vegies is so much tastier. Honey? that sounds interesting. I love honey and soy with pork and chicken, so that makes perfect sense. ❤

      Yes, Hilary! We have fruit before each meal and it really does seem to keep us well. We read somewhere how it much more beneficial, and so have taken to the habit. 🙂

    Yes, I can always do with a good sausage roll. On each Saturday Bunnings Store sell barbequed sausages. They raise funds for soccer clubs or other good causes. I go there even without any desire to buy anything from Bunnings but just for the sausages.

      I can relate to that Cynthia, I always seem to cook too much. Of course with this recipe you could use one sheet of pastry and even freeze a few for later.
