Since it is the British Sausage Week this week we have made our own sausage rolls for the children’s lunch boxes. I use the simple but delicious recipe from Fay Ripley’s cook book ‘Fay’s Family Food’. I like the idea of making my own as I can then get really good quality sausages from my local butcher and the kids love to give me a helping hand making them..
Fay Ripley's sausage rolls on the run
5mins + 30mins cooking time
Preheat the oven to Gas 7, 220°C, 425°F. Unroll the pastry and cut it down the middle lengthways.
Remove the skin from the sausages, then place them down each length of pastry and cut the pastry across so that each sausage sits on its own square. Mix the yolk and milk and use as a glue on the edge of each square, then wrap them up. Press the edges gently together and lay joined-side down on a lightly oiled oven tray.
Brush the tops with the rest of the egg mix and spinkle some sesame seeds on top. Bake for 25-30mins or until golden. Serve hot, or if you make them for lunchboxes, let them cool down and freeze in an airtight container.
Add a squirt of ketchup and vegetable sticks and voila lunch is packed!
The British Sausage week is a yearly event and this year it is celebrated between 1st - 7th November.
Every day five million Britons will eat sausages...
