Sausage rolls are an old favourite - I've tried making it traditional way, and it seems this one is the one I get rave reviews about!

  • 6 sheets Puff pastry

  • 500g Beef mince

  • 500g Sausage mince

  • 2 large brown Onions

  • 6-8 cloves Garlic

  • 2 Carrot, grated

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • 3 Eggs

  • Worscestershire sauce

  • Kepis Manis

  • Mirin

  • Sesame oil

  • Milk

  • Poppy or sesame seeds


  • 1.

    Mince the onions and garlic. Combine minces together - add onion, garlic, grated carrot and 1 egg. Combine well.

  • 2.

    Flavour mixture with a dash of Worscester, a couple of dashs of Kepis Manis, a dash of mirin and a few drops of sesame oil. Combine well and season to taste - it should smell sweet and be firm, but slightly sloppy. If too firm, add 1/2 egg (more if needed).

  • 3.

    Preheat oven to 180c-200c.

  • 4.

    Lay puff pastry out on a chopping boards and cut in half. Fill 1/3 of pastry sheet with mixture about 2cm in height - it should be roundish in shape.

  • 5.

    Mould the pastry around the filling and use egg wash to seal. Move the filling (add and subtract) as needed.

  • 6.

    Turn the chopping board to the side so you can see the end of the roll and fill the ends as needed.

  • 7.

    Cut each roll into about 4-5 pieces, depending on how big you like your sausage rolls.

  • 8.

    Place onto a baking sheet, brush with egg wash and a sprinkling of sesame or poppy seeds.

  • 9.

    Bake for 12-15mins or until golden brown.


* I tend to use "normal" beef mince because I find that the fat content is good for the rolls. * For some odd reason, I find that the Woolies brand sausage mince quite good! * You can add pretty much any vegetable to the mix - I've used peas and corn before to great acclaim! Just make sure you mix it through the meat mix really well! * If using 1/2 egg to wet mixture, use the other 1/2 beaten egg for egg wash.

These sound fantastic Meggles! Bit of an Asian twist - good thinking. My husband loves sausage rolls, so I'm going to try these next time I make him some. Thanks for posting : )
