Apple & Cheddar Sausage Rolls

Who doesn’t love sausage rolls and these ones are particularly delicious with the addition of tangy flavour of a Bramley apple? Perfect as a weekend treat, in lunchboxes or as part of a picnic as they are great hot or cold. They are also an excellent party food when you’ve lots of mouths to feed. These will also freeze very well uncooked stored in rigid plastic containers and can be cooked from frozen.

Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F), Gas mark 7. Trim and dice the leek, core and finely grate the apple and put in a bowl with the sausage meat, leek, Cheddar and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and add the mustard, then mix well. Crack the egg into a small bowl and beat with a pinch of salt.

Cut the pastry in half and roll out one piece to make a long oblong shape that is 33 x 23cm on a lightly floured surface.

Form half of the filling into a long log shape and put on the pastry approximately 5mm from the edge. Brush the edges with the beaten egg, then fold the pastry over to enclose the filling and press down the edges to seal, crimping them with your fingers or pressing down with a fork. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients.

Cut the long sausage rolls into 5cm pieces, trimming down the ends. Brush with the beaten egg and score the tops with a sharp knife, then arrange on non-stick baking parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes until cooked through and lightly golden, swapping the baking sheets halfway through. Arrange on a platter and serve hot or cold.
