  • 500g puff pastry
  • Flour, for rolling out
  • 400g Butcher's Selection 40% Less Fat Pork Sausages
  • 1 eating apple
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin (you want a rectangle about 26cm x 40cm). Trim the edges to tidy them up, then cut the pastry in half lengthways to make two thinner pieces.

  • Cut the skin along the side of each sausage, then peel it off. Put the sausage meat in a bowl. Peel, core and finely dice the apple. Add to the meat and mix together.

  • Lightly flour your hands. Divide the meat mixture in two. Roll out each half to form a long sausage the same length as the pastry.

  • Lay one roll of sausage meat lengthways on each piece of pastry. Brush egg along one of the longer edges of the pastry.

  • Fold the other edge of the pastry over the meat and roll to form a sausage roll.

  • Cut each roll into 12 mini rolls. Put on the tray, with the join underneath. Make 2 small cuts in the top of each roll and brush with the rest of the egg. Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden.
