Sausage Rolls

30g (1oz) butter
1 medium onion, chopped finely
1 medium carrot, grated
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
450g (1lb) sausage mince
450g (1lb) ground beef
1 cup stale breadcrumbs
salt and ground black pepper
3 sheets ready-rolled butter puff pastry
2 tablespoons milk

NOTE: This recipe makes 18 rolls. Make "stale" breadcrumbs by processing one- or two-day-old bread. This recipe can be made a day ahead.

Preheat the oven to moderately hot (200°C/180°C fan-forced). Line 2 oven trays with baking paper.

Heat butter in a large frying pan. Add the onion and carrot; cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until onion softens. Combine the onion mixture, tomato sauce, parsley, sausage mince, beef mince, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl; mix well.

Stand separated pastry sheets on kitchen bench for 5 minutes or until partially thawed.

Place a sheet of pastry on a board, cut in half. Place one sixth of the mince mixture along the centre of the pastry. Roll pastry to enclose the mince mixture, cut into 3 pieces. Repeat with remaining pastry and mince mixture. Place sausage rolls on prepared trays. Brush with milk.

Bake, uncovered, in a moderately hot oven for about 15 minutes or until browned lightly.

Suitable to freeze. Not suitable to microwave.

Coming from Meredith's blog...

Homemade sausage rolls!
Cool. My mom always made them with homemade pastry, but this makes the process a lot easier!

I will be trying this out as the weather gets cooler.

Do you think it would be ok to use lamb mince with the sausage mince rather than beef? Lamb mince is very moist and I tend to use it for meat balls as they don't come out dry.

Katrina - I wish I knew how to home-make puff pastry!

Jo - I don't use lamb mince (or at least VERY rarely), so I'm really not sure. If you do try it, please leave a comment and let me know how your variation turns out!
