- Mix on Reverse+Speed 5 / 15 seconds, or until completely combined.
- Cut one sheet of defrosted puff pastry in half.
- Whisk the egg and milk together.
- Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the egg mixture down one long side of each pastry half.
- Place 1/8 of the sausage mixture down the opposite side of the pastry.
- Roll the sausage rolls into a long thin roll.
- Make sure the joined pastry seam is facing down.
- Cut each roll into 3 pieces.
- Brush lightly with the egg mixture.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Place the sausage rolls onto non-stick baking trays. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
- Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and puffed and the mixture is cooked through.
- For sausage rolls with crispy bases it's best to place the sausage rolls directly onto non-stick baking trays. However, if you're worried about your sausage rolls sticking to the baking trays, you can place baking paper down first. Please note that if you do choose to use baking paper, the bottom of your sausage rolls may not become crispy due to the excess liquid that will sit on the baking paper from the sausage rolls as they cook. If this is the case, add fresh baking paper halfway through cooking or drain any liquid off the baking paper and turn the sausage rolls over.
- Sausage mince can be found at most supermarkets in the mince section. It is sold as a roll, wrapped in plastic.
