Makes: roughly 48 sausage-rolls
Time: roughly 30 mins to prepare, 30 mins to cook


  • 4 sheets ready rolled puff pastry
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 egg
  • 500g veal mince, or beef mince
  • 500g sausage mince
  • 1 small brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, coarsely grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan-forced. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Thaw puff pastry. Meanwhile, combine milk and egg in a small jug. Whisk well. Combine veal mince, sausage mince, onion, carrot, garlic, parsley and sauces in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Divide mixture into 8.
  3. Lay a sheet of pastry on a flat surface. Cut sheet in half horizontally. Spoon 1/8 of the mince mixture down along the long side of one pastry half, shaping mince into a long sausage shape. Brush opposite long edge with a little egg mixture
  4. Roll up pastry to enclose filling, finishing seam side down. Brush top of log with egg mixture. Cut into 6 short pieces. Place pieces, seam side down on prepared tray, 2cm apart. Repeat with remaining mince mixture, pastry and egg-wash.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

When cooking, bake on a tray with baking paper or ideally on a pizza tray so the oil drops beneath and the rolls stay crispy!
