Both my kids have not really grasped the wonderful world of fast food yet, they don’t really ‘know’ how to eat nuggets, pizza, burgers, hot dogs, etc etc. I actually have no idea why! It’s all so delicious?!?!
But, I find that if I make my own junk food, they’ll actually eat it. Like my baked buttermilk chicken nuggets and homemade pizza. So I figured I’ll give sausage rolls a whirl!
I wanted to do a chicken-based one, which has a bit of a less ‘meaty’ taste than using mince pork. I paired it with a block of feta cheese that I crumbled in (to give it flavour and saltiness), a scoop of breadcrumbs, diced spanish onion and garlic for flavour, shavings of carrots (just to whack in some veggies into their belly, and the carrot keeps it moist!), and a handful of minced rocket leaves for a zingy taste and greens.
Rolled it into some puff pastry and cut it into mini sausage rolls, then brushed with a bit of fresh milk (to make the top go golden). Bung in the oven until it’s all golden brown and cooked!
Pssst: I also added a generous handful of mozzarella cheese. Just to give it a bit of ooey gooeyness!
Here are the lil babies all ready to go into the oven. I baked half, but froze the other half so I can pop them into the oven anytime we want a snack.
Here they are! It looks pretty white on the inside, because of the chicken meat. Next time I’ll probably use mince pork, since I prefer the stronger flavour… and pair that with some shredded thyme and lemon zest.
Had it for dinner with some salad greens. Fairly healthy, and tasty! 🙂
