Re: Jamies Dinners Sausage Roll recipe
Hi Dubmum, recipe as requested....
Jamie's recipe for Sausage Rolls from his book "Jamie's Dinners"
It's a real shame that sausage rolls have become viewed as junk food over the years. You can make some really tasty ones using puff pastry. Buy some good sausages - Cumberland ones are great - rip them open and discard the skins. Put the meat into a bowl and add a handful of roughly chopped fresh herbs (try rosemary, sage, thyme). Then add one or two of the following: orange or lemon zest, some chestnuts, a little chopped apple or pear, and mix everything together to give you fantastically flavoured sausage meat. All you then need to do is roll out your puff pastry until it's 200cm / 8 inches wide and just under 0.5cm / 1/4 inch thick, dusting with flour as needed. Cut the sheet of pastry in half, so you have two 10cm / 4 inch wide strips. Now get your sausage stuffing and divide it in half. Roll each half into a sausage shape and lay these along the length of the two pastry stips. Egg-wash the pastry, roll it up, and then use the back of a fork to mark and seal the pastry so it is tightly wrapped up. Egg-wash the top of each, and cut the roll into shorter pieces if you want. Bake at 220C/425F/gas 7 until golden, crisp and puffed up.
You can freeze the rolls uncooked - simply remove them from the freezer when you need them and cook them from frozen at 220C/425F/gas 7 until golden and crisp.
Nice with some Branston pickle, a lump of Cheddar and rocket salad.
