Sausage rolls are one of those typically wonderful British snacks that you would never want to know what it’s made of, let alone make yourself. As a veggie, you are quite limited when it comes to pies and pastries so I decided to make my own version of sausage rolls – using feta, onions and mushrooms as a filling. These are lovely warm but make a whole batch so that you have some in the fridge to eat on a picnic – it’s still summer after all!
You will need: 700g Rough puff pastry – I made my own using Gordon Ramsay’s recipe on BBC Good Food – http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2403/roughpuff-pastry- which was fairly successful but if you want to use ready made pastry go for it! 250g mushroom, 1/2 large onion, 100g feta cheese (any greek salad cheese will do), 1 beaten egg, salt to taste.
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius. First of all roll out your pastry to about 5mm thick on a floured surface. Then dice your mushrooms, onion and feta, mix everything together in a large bowl. Chop your pastry into large squares. Place two large tablespoons of filling into a column in the middle of the square. Fold the top and bottom of the pastry square on top of the filling. Fold one third of the pastry over the filling, then the other half over that. Then gently roll the sausage roll on the surface to seal the pastry into a nice rolled shape. Brush the rolls with the beaten egg then place your lovely sausage rolls onto an oven tray. Pop in the oven for 20 minutes, until they are lovely and golden brown. Stab one with a knife to check the filling is cooked and then place on a wire rack to cool.These make a great summer treat, you could even make mini ones to serve at parties, or as aperitifs before a dinner party. You could also add some different fillings – but the mushroom and feta combination is really tasty and filling.
