Ingredients

Sausage rolls
  • 400 gram sausage mince
  • 2 tablespoon store-bought breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon (20ml) worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon (20ml) tomato sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
Pizza spirals
  • 2 puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) pizza sauce (or tomato paste)
  • 1/4 cup ham or mild salami, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red or green capsicum (bell pepper), finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup cheddar or mozzarella, grated

Method

Sausage rolls and pizza spirals
  • 1
    For sausage rolls, preheat oven to 180°C.
  • 2
    Place the mince, breadcrumbs and sauces in a large bowl. Break the egg into a cup and beat with a fork then pour half of it in with the mince (you"ll use the remaining egg to brush over the pastry). Stir well to combine.
  • 3
    Divide the mixture into 4 portions then form into logs, the same length as the pastry sheets.
  • 4
    Cut each sheet of pastry into 2 rectangles. Place 1 log of sausage filling along the edge of one of the pieces of pastry then roll to form a long pastry-covered sausage. Repeat with remaining pastry and filling.
  • 5
    Use a sharp knife to cut each log into 6 sausage rolls then place them on a tray lined with baking paper with pastry seam facing down. Brush the top of each sausage roll with beaten egg. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.
  • 6
    For pizza spirals, preheat oven to 180°C.
  • 7
    Use a knife to mark a 1 1/2cm border down one edge of each sheet of pastry, making sure not to cut through the pastry.
  • 8
    Spread the pizza sauce over the pastry, making sure not to spread it over the border. If using tomato paste, you may like to add some chopped fresh herbs (basil, oregano, etc) or a small amount of dried herbs to add some pizza flavour.
  • 9
    Combine the ham/salami, mushroom and capsicum in a small bowl and scatter the mix over the pizza sauce, then top with grated cheese.
  • 10
    Roll the pastry into a log, starting at the side that is opposite the border. Using a sharp knife, cut 1/2cm off each end and discard. Slice the log into rounds, about 1-1 1/2cm thick. Place the spirals in trays lined with baking paper, allowing a little room for the pastry to puff up, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Notes

Makes 24 sausage rolls and 30 pizza spirals. Flash freeze the sausage rolls on a tray lined with baking paper then transfer to a freezer bag or plastic container. Defrost in the fridge, or you could cook these from frozen. For defrosted, bake in 180°C for 30 minutes. For frozen, bake in 180°C for 45-50 minutes. Cook pizza spirals from frozen.
