  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Small brown onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 400 grams pork mince
  • 30 grams breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground white pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh sage finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds ground
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry
  • 1 egg
  • 40 ml full-cream milk


  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and sauté the onion and add the garlic.
  • Cool the onion mixture and add to a large bowl with the pork, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, sage and fennel seeds.
  • With clean hands, mix until well combined.
  • Divide the mix into 3 equal portions and refrigerate while preparing the pastry.
  • Remove the puff pastry from the freezer.
  • You will need one and a half pastry sheets — assuming that the pastry sheets are 25cm x 25cm. Cut the pastry sheets in half. Each half will make two sausage rolls once you fill, roll and cut in half lengthways.
  • Once you have your pastry cut and ready, put the rest of your puff pastry back in the freezer.
  • Place one log of the filling in the centre of the pastry and pat out to fill the length of the pastry.
  • Lightly beat the egg and milk together. With a pastry brush, brush one end of each sheet of the pastry.
  • Fold the pastry from both front and back and create a light seam in the middle. Lightly press the seam together.
  • Cut the roll in half, making two 12.5 cm long sausage rolls.
  • Place the rolls seam-side down on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush the top of the rolls with the egg wash.
  • Refrigerate while you make the remaining rolls.
  • Preheat the oven to 200˚C and bake the rolls until they are golden brown and cooked through (internal temperature should be 71˚C). This should take around 20 to 30 minutes depending on the oven. I like to rotate the tray half way through to help get an even golden brown crust.
  • Serve with tomato sauce.
