Quick & Easy Party Sausage Rolls
8 of your favourite sausages 1/2 cup grated carrot 1/2 cup grated cheese 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed 1 egg, lightly beaten sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with paper. Remove casings from sausages and squeeze contents into a medium bowl. Add grated carrot and cheese. Mix together with fingers. Cut each sheet of pastry in half. Spread the sausage meat evenly down the long side of each pastry piece, leaving a small gap from the edge. Start rolling until you get to the end and rub the egg wash along the other long edge to seal. Place the sausage roll on the baking tray so the join is underneath. Rub the rest of the egg over the top and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Cut each log into 6 rolls. Cook for 25-30 minutes. Rest on tray for 5 minutes. Makes 24.
