All these delicious bites need is a big squirt of tomato sauce on top (sorry… I’m an Aussie girl… give me ALL the tomato sauce!).

Now I know that lots of people don’t like making their own sausage rolls because they can’t get them crispy enough. WELL!! Fear not!! The trick is to strain out ALL of the excess liquid from the grated carrot and zucchini. And I really do mean ALL of the excess liquid. This seriously makes such a huge difference to your sausage rolls… as in…. soggy versus crispy! I like to put the grated veggies into a strainer, squeeze out as much liquid as I can with my hands and then grab some paper towel and squeeze out the rest. Trust me on this one. Strain. Squeeze. Squeeeeeze!!!

  • 6 sheets puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees celsius (or 210 degrees if using fan-forced).

  2. Grate carrot and zucchini and remove any excess liquid through a strainer (see note).

  3. Place the drained carrot and zucchini into a bowl.

Recipe Notes

To ensure crispy sausage rolls, make sure that you strain out ALL of the excess liquid from the grated carrot and zucchini. I like to put the grated veggies into a strainer, squeeze out as much liquid as I can with my hands and then grab some paper towel and squeeze out the rest.

For sausage rolls with crispy bases I find it best to place the sausage rolls directly onto non-stick baking trays. However, if you're worried about your sausage rolls sticking to the baking trays, you can place baking paper down first. Please note that if you do choose to use baking paper, the bottom of your sausage rolls may not become crispy due to the excess liquid that will sit on the baking paper from the sausage rolls as they cook. If this is the case, add fresh baking paper halfway through cooking or drain any liquid off the baking paper and turn the sausage rolls over.
