Equipment

  • Thermomix (optional)
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 6 sheets puff pastry defrosted
  • 500 g beef mince
  • 500 g sausage mince
  • 1 brown onion chopped finely
  • 1 carrot grated
  • 1 zucchini grated
  • 1 clove garlic or 1 tsp minced garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbs tomato sauce
  • 2 tbs BBQ sauce
  • 1 egg
  • Sesame seeds or black poppy seeds to sprinkle

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to not 200 degrees celsius fan-forced (or 220 degrees if conventional).
  • Grate carrot and zucchini and remove any excess liquid through a strainer. Place the drained carrot and zucchini into a bowl.
  • Add the chopped onion, sausage mince, beef mince, garlic, tomato sauce and BBQ sauce to the bowl. Mix together until well combined.
  • Cut each sheet of defrosted puff pastry in half.
  • Whisk the egg lightly. 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 the sausage rolls into a long thin roll. Make sure the joined pastry seam is facing down.
  • Cut each roll into 6 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 200 degrees celsius fan-forced (or 220 degrees if conventional).
  • Place carrot, zucchini and onion into the Thermomix bowl. Press Turbo 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.
  • Add the sausage mince, beef mince, garlic, grated vegetables, tomato sauce and BBQ sauce to the Thermomix bowl. Mix for 15 seconds on Reverse Speed 5, or until completely combined.
  • Cut each sheet of defrosted puff pastry in half.
  • Whisk the egg lightly. 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 the sausage rolls into a long thin roll. Make sure the joined pastry seam is facing down. Cut each roll into 6 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.

Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
INGREDIENTS:
  • Puff pastry - is sold frozen in 25cm x 25cm ready-rolled squares that can be found in the freezer section in supermarkets. Make sure the pastry is thawed completely before rolling, to avoid cracks.
  • Sausage mince – sausage mince is usually made from ground pork or beef, with added fat, seasoning, herbs and spices. It can be found in the meat section in your local supermarket, or from butchers.  
  • For egg-free sausage rolls - swap the egg glaze (and seal) for milk or water and be sure to pinch the pastry edges together quite firmly to avoid the pastry splitting open while cooking.
OTHER TIPS:
  • Oven baking - for sausage rolls with crispy bases it is 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 use baking paper. Please note, 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.
  • Air fryer -  once sausage rolls are prepared and cut into pieces, place them in your air fryer basket and cook at 200 C/392F for 10-15 minutes, or until puffed, golden and cooked through in the middle. Depending on the size of your air fryer, they may need to be cooked in batches. Cooking times will vary as all air fryers vary slightly depending on model and size.
  • Make ahead - sausage rolls store well in the fridge for 3-4 days and reheat beautifully when ready to be eaten.
  • Reheating - to re-crisp the pastry, reheat sausage rolls in a pre-heated oven at 180 C/356 F for around 10 minutes, or until heated through. They can also be reheated in an air fryer at 160 C/320 F for 5-10 minutes. A microwave can be used if you are in a hurry, but the pastry will become soft.
  • Serving - these sausage rolls are delicious eaten hot or cold. For a lunch or dinner, serve with a side salad or steamed vegetables. Great as finger food, and a bowl of tomato sauce or chutney for dipping is a must!!
  • Freezing - sausage rolls can be wrapped and stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. They can be rolled, cut and frozen cooked or un-cooked. If freezing cooked sausage rolls, allow them to cool first. Then, wrap them in plastic wrap or baking paper before layering them in an airtight container and placing in the freezer. To thaw, leave them in the fridge overnight or let them sit at room temperature for around an hour.
