Simple Quick and Delicious Sausage Roll

.houldSWith it being the school holidays we spent the day exploring the South Downs. Muddy paths, giant mud puddles and chalk cliffs. With the kids taking it in turns showering, changing and generally winding down, I needed something quick and filling.

Sausage meat is fairly cheap in the local supermarket and can be used for many recipes. However, with a pack of ready-made pastry in the cupboard, I decided to take the easy route today and went with something that I knew all would enjoy.

This recipe takes 5 minutes to prepare and only 20 minutes to cook. Perfect for a busy family in the middle of the school holidays.

With a total price of £3.45 to feed the four of us, it is an affordable dinner that will please the entire family. Next time you are shopping, don’t forget to check out the reduced or yellow sticker section of the supermarket. Among the other items, I often see packets of sausage meat in there. So grab them and stick them into my freezer for future use.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Pack of Sausage Meat, £2.00
  • 1 Pack of ready Rolled Puff Pastry, £1.35
  • 1 Egg, beaten 10p

£3.45 to make this delicious giant sausage roll. I served with homemade wedges and salad. So £3.75 for a meal for 4 people.

    Instructions
     

    • I started by unrolling the pastry and cutting it in half lengthways to form 2 long pieces of pastry.
    • I then simply split the sausage meat into two bits and rolled and squeezed it to form two long sausage shapes and placed them onto the pastry. I then rolled the pastry and pressed down on the ends to join together.
    • I brushed the sausage rolls with the egg and then cooked them at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes. I served this with some homemade potato wedges and a side salad with a caesar dressing. The sausage roll could also be cut up into little sausage rolls and used for a delicious snack.
