I made these sausage rolls for our baby’s first birthday party. I wanted to have the food loosely matching the the theme of the party. We had Homemade Star Chips, which I posted about last week and the kids wanted me to make the sausage rolls look like rockets. That was a little tricky, so I ended up having points at the end of each roll, which the kids felt just passed!
Party Sausage Roll Recipe
I found a recipe in and old Donna Hay Kid Issue and modified it to suit my needs.
- 800 grams sausage mince
- 6 sheets puff pastry
- 8 spring onions, finely chopped
- 2 tbsps flat-leaf parsley chopped
- 4 tablespoons bbq sauce
- sea salt and cracked pepper
- 2/3 cup whole egg mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Separate and defrost pastry on a flat surface.
- In a large bowl, mix mince, onions, parsley, bbq sauce, seasoning with salt and pepper.
- Once defrosted I cut the pastry sheets into 3 horizontally, then again vertically, so that I had nine squares.
- Place a heaped teaspoon of the mixture diagonally onto the square, then pull up two edges around the mixture and roll the pastry together. The first batch I made, I didn’t roll them tight enough and the split open. So they stayed together better, I rolled the pastry together tightly, then made a prick near the seam.
- Place on a lined tray leaving room for spreading. Bake on 200 degrees for 10 minutes, then turn oven down slightly to 180 and bake for a further 10 minutes.
- Allow to cool slightly before serving to young children as the insides can be very hot.
- In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise and tomato sauce, then serve with the party sausage rolls. I wasn’t sure about this combo when I read it, but it was DELICIOUS!
- This mixture made 45 sausage rolls, but it was time consuming having to wrap each roll individually. When I make them next time and it is not to fit the theme of the party, I would definitely do them in the conventional sausage roll manner!
The Family Menu Plan For This Week
Baking: Chocolate Balls
Monday: Pumpkin Soup Our three year olds obsession with this meal continues through summer!
Tuesday: Mexibake When we did our monthly menu plan last time, 3 out of the 4 children who contribute to the plan, put this on the list, so it will be appearing regularly too!
Wednesday: Left Overs. This is a big run around day with activities (kindy gym, 2 separate cricket training sessions and a dance class!) so I will try and have some food left over from the the days before, so I don’t have to worry about cooking.
Thursday: Pasta Carbonara
Friday: Home Made Pizzas
Sunday: Lamb Chops, Potato Au Gratin And Steamed Vegetables Didn’t actually cook this last week, so will plan to do so this week.
