Party Sausage Rolls

SausageRolls

INGREDIENTS
YIELD 24 sausage rolls

6 pre-rolled puff pastry sheets, halved
1 kg ground sausage
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs or 1 cup dried breadcrumbs
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1⁄2 cup milk
salt and pepper
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat your oven to 425 F /220c.

Lay all the sheets of pastry out on your counter top.
In Australia, this pastry comes interleaved with plastic, which you still leave on at this stage.
Mix together the meat, breadcrumbs, onion, parsley, milk and salt and pepper.
The mixture will be quite sloppy-this keeps the sausage rolls moist.
Whisk the egg and 2 tablespoons of milk together in a small bowl.
Fill a large piping bag (no nozzle) with the mix and squeeze out a long line of mix down the long edge of the pastry-about 1/2 an inch in from that edge.
Roll up, peeling the plastic away as you roll.
Seal the inner edge with a little of the egg mix.
Cut each of these rolls in half.
I like to make an indent with a sharp knife in the middle of each of these smaller rolls to make them easier to eat.
Prick each roll a couple of times with a fork.
Repeat this until all the pastry and mix is used.
Brush the tops of the rolls with the egg mix.
Place in the oven and cook for 5 minutes.
Reduce the heat to 395F/200c and cook for a further 20 minutes.

Remove to a tray to cool a little before serving them with ketchup or your favorite BBQ sauce.

Keilbasa and Saurkraut with Potatoes

Ingredients:
1 lb kielbasa
1 12 oz bag of saurkraut (well drained and rinsed) Less if you like!
2 medium sized potatoes peeled and quartered (I prefer leaving the skin on)
1 dash of white cooking wine to deglaze pan after frying sausage
1 cup chicken broth or more if you need it!
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
In a non-stick skillet,  use just a little olive oil and place sausage in skillet under medium heat. Cook for about 1o to 15 minutes, rotating every few minutes or so. Remove sausage and allow to cool before slicing. Meanwhile, drain and rinse saurkraut completely! Deglaze pan with a little white cooking wine and spread out the saurkraut evenly in the pan, do not over crowd. Meanwhile…

You can boil the potatoes and allow to cool before cutting. I prefer to poke a couple of holes in each one, rinse and cover with several layers of paper towel. Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly tender but not all the way done. Allow to cool. Then quarter them. This is a real time saver for this dish!

Next, combine potatoes, chicken broth, saurkraut and sausage. Cover and cook for another 20 minutes or until potatoes become tender.

We like to make Cheddar Cheese Drop Biscuits and serve with this meal!
