|FOOD|sausage plait

Here's a really simple and cheap recipe for you to serve on a summers day with salad or turn it into comfort food with a nice pile of mash and veg!  This recipe was given to me by a good friend, I've adapted it a little by adding in some stuffing, I used sage and onion because my lot are a bit traditional but you can go wild with the flavours and create many different variations. 

Fundamentally, it's a big sausage roll but it's a great family meal and storecupboard (well fridge/freezer) favourite. 

Serves 6

1 pack ready made puff pastry
1 pack frozen sausage meat (defrosted)
100g packet stuffing mix
1 chopped onion
1 egg whisked


1. Make up stuffing according to packet instructions. 

2. In a bowl combine the made up stuffing, sausage meat and onion and give it a good squish together to mix the stuffing through the meat. 

3. Prepare the pastry buy laying/rolling out place the sausage meat in the middle and make slices along each edge, remove the corners.  Fold the top flap down and then alternately 'plait' the pastry. I hope you can see from the pictures better than I'm explaining!

4. Brush with beaten egg. 

5. Bake at 140oC for about 25 mins.

This went down a treat with my family, I hope it does with yours too!
