My friend Sheila gave me this recipe (and a few others) to try out for this blog so I decided to make this one first. I must say it was really delicious and I’ll add this to my favourites. I made this using the tomato option with 3 tomatoes but next time I will use two and drain the tomatoes even more as the mixture was a bit moist.
8 sausages – take out of skins
2 chopped apples OR 6 – 8 chopped prunes and chopped bacon OR 2 small (or 1 large) skinned tomatoes, very well drained
2 chopped onions
5 ml dried sage or basil
salt and pepper
1 roll readymade flaky pastry
Mix sausage meat with the other ingredients.
Roll out the pastry into a rectangle (or halve the pastry and make two smaller ones) and spread the sausage mixture over this, leaving a border all round. Dampen the edges and roll up like a swiss roll. Seal the edges. Brush the top with beaten egg.
Lift onto a large flat baking sheet and bake at 180 C for about an hour.
You might find it easier if you halve the pastry and made two smaller rolls. I will definitely do this next time, especially seeing I prefer the edge pieces!
Serves 5 – 6
