Kids Cooking Thursday: Sausage Rolls

We made these for KCT almost a year ago, but it's been a lot longer since I posted the original recipe, and it bears repeating. These were a huge hit with the kids at Master Six's party, and more than a few school friends were a little jealous when they learned we made them ourselves.

Sausage Rolls
2kg sausage mince or 50-50 mince meat
2 cups breadcrumbs
2 large onions
4 celery sticks
2 cooking apples
1 large potato (opt.)
1 tbsp mixed herbs
dash pepper
dash garlic salt
1kg pkt puff pastry sheets (6 or 7 sheet pkt)

Place onions, celery, apples and potato in a food processor and mince very fine.
Place in a large bowl with the sausage mince, add breadcrumbs and mix thoroughly.
Cut pastry sheets in half and roll out a bit thinner, place sausage mince on pastry.
Wet it one side and roll into a large sausage. Cut into required lengths and bake in 220c oven for 35min.

Unbaked sausage rolls can be frozen, thawing before cooking as usual, but I find it easier to cook the lot, then freeze leftovers. Cooked frozen sausage rolls can be reheated in the microwave straight from the freezer, providing a quick snack or dinner, in under 10 minutes with no notice.

Much better than Gary's recipe on MC tonight. Like the inclusion of apple in there!
