Homemade (healthier) sausage rolls
While sausage rolls are delicious and a great treat for kids, they’re not usually a very nutritious option. This is normally due to the puff pastry and average quality meat. However, by using good quality sausages and wraps rather than pastry they become a great snack or lunch!
These homemade sausage rolls are great for kids parties or as lunchbox fillers. Adults love them just as much, and they’re a great thing to bring to a work potluck morning team! Have them pre-cooked and just heat up in the oven if possible. Any sausages work, but pork works particularly well. These would go very well with my homemade tomato sauce, some twice-cooked handcut chips and pink mayo (and some veggies of course!).
- good-quality sausages 12
- plain or flavoured wraps 4
- butter 40 grams, melted
- sesame seeds 2 tablespoons
- chutney or tomato sauce to serve
- Squeeze the filling out of the sausage casings into a bowl. Smoosh it all together with your hands.
- Lay out the wraps and divide the sausage meat between them. Shape meat into a log across each wrap about a quarter of the way up from bottom.
- Brush the top half of the wrap with butter. Roll the wrap up firmly, enclosing the meat to form a log. Brush each log with butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Chill sausage rolls for 20 minutes, then cut each log into about five evenly sized pieces and place on a lined baking tray.
- Bake rolls for about 20 minutes or until wrap is golden and the filling is set and cooked through.
- Serve the warm sausage rolls with chutney or tomato sauce.
