Turkey Sausage Rolls

Man I was so impressed when I discovered you can buy turkey mince here in Woolworths.

It is lean and tasty and really good.  I don’t buy beef mince any more.  It makes great chili and excellent bolognese.  I may even use it instead of pork in wontons…  But I digress…  These are relatively low fat because almost the only fat in them is what is in the pastry.

Makes 40 sausage rolls:

500g turkey mince.

1 onion finely chopped

2 carrots finely grated

1 egg beaten

1/2 teaspoon italian herbs

salt and pepper

a pinch of mustard powder

dash of bitters

dash of worcestershire sauce

a squirt of chicken stock concentrate

a cup of breadcrumbs (remember my breadcrumbs are made with a little  paprika and tumeric probably less than a 1/4 teaspoon of each in the cup of crumbs.

Mix it all well and let stand for a while

Cut 4 sheets of puff pastry in half – NOT diagonally!

Roll a quarter of the mixture out into a sausage the length of the sheet and wrap it in pastry, sealing the overlap of the pastry with wet fingers.  Put the overlap on the bottom. Cut each long roll into 5 short lengths, and prick each with a sharp knife or fork.

Brush milk or beaten egg yolk on the top of the rolls.

Place on a baking tray near the top of an oven preheated to 200 deg C

bake for 25-30 minutes


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
