Prep Time25 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time55 mins
Ingredients
 1 tbsp Vegetable oil.
 1 Medium onion (finely chopped).
 907 g Sausage meat.
 3 Medium eggs (seperated).
 708 g Puff or shortcrust pastry.
 Ground black pepper (to taste).
 Salt (to taste).
 Flour (to cover surface for for rolling out pastry).
METHOD
1

In a frying pan, heat the vegetable oil on medium heat and add the onion to cook for approximately 7 minutes, or until it starts to lightly brown.

2

In a large mixing bowl, add the sausage meat, cooked onion, and 2 of the eggs. Season with a couple of pinches of black pepper and a good sprinkling of salt. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly and evenly combined.

3

Preheat the oven to 205 c. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry into two 20 by 25cm rectangles. Cut each rectangle into 2 long strips (4 total) and rest them in the fridge for at least 10 minutes.

4

Place the cold pastry onto 2 lightly greased baking pans. In the centre of each pastry, form the sausage meat into a long sausage the length of the pastry strip. Beat the remaining egg in a small bowl and lightly brush the edges of the pastry.

5

Fold the pastry over the meat filling to form long rolls. Flip the sausage roll over so the seam is underneath. Lightly brush the top surface with egg.

6

Cut the rolls into 4cm lengths. Or vary the length to the style of roll you want.

7

Cook in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Leave them to cool before packing them into your picnic basket or lunch box, or simply eat them straight from the oven (remember to blow on them first!).
