A Sausage Christmas Cracker

Firstly, this is my blog’s one year anniversary y’all! And I hope you’ve all had some happy eating over the past year! I know my cooking has certainly improved, so thanks to everyone who follows and has commented!

Because t’is the season, I celebrated by shaping a sausage roll into a Christmas Cracker! And, why not!

I used my mother’s homemade gooseberry chutney (which should be available in the shops, but alas is not!) but you can substitute this with a chutney of your choice – onion relish would also be brilliant.

  • Half a 500g block of puff pastry, rolled out thinly
  • 2 tbsp chutney
  • 6 sausages
  • A couple of handfuls of grated cheddar
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 180c. Deskin your sausages and break the sausage meat up.
  2. Roll your pastry out thinly. Smear the chutney down the centre of the pastry in a line. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and season.
  3. Place your sausage meat on top into a sausage shape down the middle.
  4. Roll into a sausage shape. If you like pinch into thirds to make a cracker shape. Score the top in thin lines with a knife and brush with beaten egg.
  5. Put in the oven for 30 minutes, until the pastry is lightly browned. Slice and serve with mash and veg.
