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
- Preheat the oven to 180c. Deskin your sausages and break the sausage meat up.
- 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.
- Place your sausage meat on top into a sausage shape down the middle.
- 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.
- Put in the oven for 30 minutes, until the pastry is lightly browned. Slice and serve with mash and veg.
