Equipment

  • Thermomix (optional)
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 1 carrot grated
  • 1 zucchini grated
  • 1 brown onion chopped finely
  • 500 g sausage mince
  • 500 g pork mince
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tbs tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 sheets puff pastry defrosted
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • sesame seeds or black poppy seeds, to sprinkle

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to 220 degrees celsius (or 210 degrees if using fan-forced).
  • Grate carrot and zucchini and remove any excess liquid through a strainer (see note).
  • Place the drained carrot and zucchini into a bowl.
  • Add the chopped onion, sausage mince, pork mince, garlic, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce to the bowl. Mix together until well combined.
  • Cut one sheet of defrosted puff pastry in half.
  • Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the egg mixture down one long side of each pastry half.
  • Place 1/12th of the sausage mixture in a long thin line down the opposite side.
  • Roll into a long thin roll making sure that the joined pastry seam is facing down. 
  • Cut each roll into 3 pieces. Brush lightly with the egg mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or black poppy seeds.
  • Place the sausage rolls onto non-stick baking trays.
  • Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and puffed and the mixture is cooked through.

Thermomix Method

  • Preheat oven to 220 degrees celsius (or 210 degrees if using fan-forced).
  • Place carrot, zucchini and onion into the Thermomix bowl. Grate on Speed 9, 5 seconds, or until the mixture is finely grated (you may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl). 
  • Place the grated vegetables into a strainer and squeeze out any excess liquid. Return to the Thermomix bowl. 
  • Add the sausage mince, pork mince, garlic, grated vegetables, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce to the Thermomix bowl. Mix on Reverse Speed 5 for 30 seconds or until completely combined (using the spatula to help mix).
  • Cut one sheet of defrosted puff pastry in half. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the egg mixture down one long side of each pastry half.
  • Place 1/12th of the sausage mixture in a long thin line down the opposite side. Roll into a long thin roll making sure that the joined pastry seam is facing down. 
  • Cut each roll into 3 pieces. Brush lightly with the egg mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or black poppy seeds.
  • Place the sausage rolls onto non-stick baking trays (see note).
  • Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and puffed and the mixture is cooked through.

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.
