Lets get one thing straight, me and sports don't mix!! However any excuse will do to cook. So in the spirit of sport-mans ship, on the eve on one of the biggest events on the Melbourne calendar I made some sausage rolls, for the grand final ( Melbourne vs Sydney). I have no intention of watching the grand final, I do however have grand intensions of eating the sausage rolls.
Now these are cheats sausage rolls, as I happened to have some sausages in the freezer, and waste not want not, I say. So I used them up in these.
1 packet of sausages
4 sprigs of thyme
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon mustard
2 sheets of puff pastry
1 beaten egg
poppy seeds to sprinkle
Pre heat oven to 180
Remove the skins from the sausages and place the meat into a bowl. Then add the leaves from the thyme, the garlic, mustard and pepper and stir until combined.
Cut the sheets of puff pastry into two, then place the meat along the longest point and roll up, and brush the end with egg wash to seal it.
Brush some egg wash over the top of the sausage roll and sprinkle the poppy seeds over the top.
Serve with some good old tomato sauce.
Now Dig in...
