Weekend’s here, time to get things done around the house! First port of call was Paint Spot to pick up some decking oil to seal the decking boards that we’ve done, next port of call was the shopping centre for some odds and ends…including getting some numbers for Cayden’s new footy jumper (he only received it Friday night and it’s only been taken off for bed!) Came home and did the decking oil and then got onto lunch which we decided to have sausage rolls…a family favourite here!
Makes approx 30
500g sausage mince
1 carrot, grted
1 onion, finely diced
1/3 cup dried breadcrumbs
1 tspn italian herbs, or parsley,
3 sheets of puff pastry cut in half
Mix first 5 ingredients together…get your hands in and really mix it well!
Make an egg and milk wash by mixing 1 egg and 1/4 cup milk together.
Wet your hands and form large handfuls into long sausage shape and place on edge of pastry sheet. Roll up in 1/2 a sheet of pastry…seal edge with egg and milk wash. Brush top of pastry with egg wash and sprinkle paprika lightly over the top . Cut log into 6 bite size sausage rolls … or make them large by only cutting in half if you prefer.
Continue making sausage rolls until all meat is used.
Bake in a moderate oven 180C for 20-30min, until brown and cooked through.
Tonight for tea the kids had home made chicken nuggets and we had some gnocchi in a tomato, onion and butter sauce. When we were at the shopping centre this morning they had some taste tests of gnocchi fried up…was so good that I bought some there and then (and I don’t generally like gnocchi!) So tonight I fried up some gnocchi and this sauce from smitten kitchen’s blog. Was good! (not the best of photo’s)
