Sausage Roll Recipe Instructions

via From The Pantry To The Table

Mix meat in a large bowl with all other ingredients except egg mix and pastry. Due to the quantity of meat, always wear gloves, and do this by hand.

It makes it so much easier and everything incorporates better

Lay a pastry sheet on a flat surface (cutting board). Gently fold in half, pressing lightly to form a seam. Unfold and lay flat.

This will give you an even cutting guide. Using a sharp knife, cut down the center seam.

Use a fork to spoon meat mixture into the center of one slice of the pastry. You want to form a line like a sausage.

Don’t have it too thick as you need to be able to roll your pastry around it.

Brush one side of the pastry with the egg wash. Starting with the non-brushed side. Roll the pastry around the meat, enclosing it well.

With seam side down, cut the sausage roll to the desired length.

For large Gail cuts in half, for small, she cuts into 4. Prick tops with a fork. Brush with the egg and sprinkle with either sesame or poppy seeds.

Bake at 180C for 25-30 minutes or until pastry is golden.

Sausage Plaited Roll Instructions

For the plait, I spoon the meat mixture down the center of a pastry sheet, I work on 1/3rd’s, 1/3 pastry on either side. 1/3rd meat center.

Brush pastry with egg wash then cut downward slits in the pastry angled down on both sides, fold these over the meat in a plait effect.

Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with a mix of sesame and poppy seeds. This will bake at 180C (360F) for 30-40 minutes until golden.

This recipe will make what you see on the finished racks.

  • 16 large
  • 1 plait
  • 3 dozen small
