So this is coming to you from a very cold house on a work night where it has been stressful to the max and I’m now on countdown to when I go on maternity leave. I’ve lit candles, I’ve got a cup of tea and I have a hot water bottle – all in the attempt to make life feel just a little bit more cosy. If you are wondering, it is not and I’m seriously considering emigrating.
This is one of the two dishes I made for my baby shower. I wanted to make some food, but also rely on my lovely friends and family to do the food as that is what they are there for.
I went for a twist on the classic sausage rolls. When I researched this recipe I thought hm, is this going to be too challenging for the night before? In response to myself it was not and I would make them again as they were a hit!
– 200g Chorizo sausage
– 200g full fat pork sausages
– 325g puff pastry (ready made)
– 1 egg
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line two baking trays with baking parchment
2. Chop up into small pieces the chorizo and sausages. Then blend together in a food processor.
3. Prepare your puff pastry by opening up onto a floured surface and cutting down the middle length ways.
4. Split your sausage mix equally and create a sausage line across the pastry – not in the centre but more towards yourself leaving more pastry on the other side of the sausage line and less towards yourself.
5. Drizzle honey over the sausage mixture.
6. Beat your egg in a bowl and brush the wider pastry side (this should be not on your side of the sausage line)
7. Life up the shorter side of the pastry (on your side) and bring over the sausage line, tucking and rolling until you have two long sausage rolls.
8. Turn the seam so it is facing upwards and use a fork to press down the seam
9. Turn the sausage rolls back so seam down and cut into 10-12 sausage rolls per long sausage roll
10. Place on the baking trays, lightly score the top of each roll, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle poppy seeds over the top.
11. Bake for 25 minutes.
Hope you enjoy these and let me know if you make these yourself! There were none left at the end of the baby shower so I believe they were a success.
