I know sausage rolls aren’t 100% healthy as they are encased in delicious pastry. They are an easy lunch or dinner, can be frozen and you can easily sneak some veggies in there. Make sure all your veggies are grated and no one will ever know.
One packet of puff pastry
500g of lean mince beef or sausage mince
1 grated carrot
Bunch of parsley
Teaspoon of garlic
Teaspoon of seeded mustard
Handful of spinach
1 small zucchini
(Any other sneaky veg you like)
Pinch of salt
Small cup of milk
▫Preheat oven to 200°c
▫Lay out your pastry and cut each sheet in half.
▫Combine all ingredients in a bowl (except 1 egg and the milk). Mix thoroughly to ensure the veggies are mixed through.
▫Make egg wash using by combining 1 egg and small amount of milk.
Place mixture in centre of pastry and brush egg wash on the edge to ensure it sticks.
▫Brush egg wash on top of rolls and pierce with fork or skewer (you can also add some poppy seeds, sesame seeds or crushed pumpkin seeds to the top) ▫Bake for 20 mins at 200°c and then reduce heat to 180°c and bake until golden (approx 5-10 mins)
Serve with bbq or tomato sauce.
