It’s been another big weekend for me.
I went straight to the airport from work on Friday to fly to Sydney for RTX AU.
I had a fantastic time and meet some great people as well as getting to catch up with some of my Supanova friends. Though I didn’t get to spend much time with them I even got to catch up with couple of my family members.
The only downsides were it was a lot of late nights and early mornings and I couldn’t get Monday off so on Monday morning it was a very early flight and straight of the plane to work.
On the up side I slept really well last night and as today is a public holiday I even got a sleep in (and a nap).
B and I haven’t done much today to celebrate Australia Day, just enjoyed getting to spend some time together. This is the only day we are both home all day since before the new year and until mid February as he leaves to go overseas on Friday. It’s been a nice relaxing day.
As today is Australia day here I thought I’d go with an Aussie classic. The mighty Sausage roll! Even better this is my super cheats recipe so it’s super easy. Eat them nice and hot from the oven or keep them to take for lunch.
Simple Sausage Rolls
Puff pastry (I use the pre rolled frozen sheets)
Your favourite sauce to serve
Firstly I don’t usually use just regular sausages (though you definitely can if that’s what you like). I like to get some nice gourmet flavoured sausages either from the shops or my local butcher.
Defrost your puff pastry sheet/s on the bench until its just soft enough to cut through. You’ll need around 3 sausages per sheet of pastry.
Cut the puff pasty in thirds then cut those thirds vertically then in half horizontally to make 2 smaller rectangles of pastry. Cut each of your sausages in half.
Place a half a sausage on along one of the long edges of each piece of puff pastry then roll the puff pastry around the rest of the sausage. Press the edges of the pastry together to seal then seal the ends.
Place the wrapped sausages on a tray lined with baking paper and bake for 30 mins or until the pastry is puffed and browned.
Remove from oven and serve with your favourite sauce or allow to cool fully and keep refrigerated until your ready to eat them (reheat in microwave if desired).
Sometimes I like to put some cheese in side my sausage rolls. Just put the chees on the puff pastry before you wrap up your sausage. You could also just replace your sausage with cheese altogether if your catering for non meat eater or you don’t like sausages.
So what did you get up to for Australia day? Do you have a favourite gourmet sausage flavour?
I hope you give the sausage rolls a go.
