Ingredients

FILLING

  • 7 oz (200g) bacon, minced or finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small carrot, finely shredded/grated
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground fennel seeds
  • 8 oz (250g) ground pork mince
  • 8 oz (250g) ground beef mince
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cracked black pepper

ASSEMBLE

  • 2 1/2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Instructions

FILLING

  • Fry bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes until just starting to crisp and bacon releases grease. Add onion, celery and carrot to the pan, sauté for 2 minutes or until veggies have softened. Sauté the garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
    Transfer to bowl and let mixture cool for 10 minutes.
  • Add remaining FILLING ingredients to the bowl and mix well using your hands.

ASSEMBLE

  • Lightly flour a work bench. Cut one pastry sheet in half and lay one half down in front of you.
  • Spoon 1/5th of the filling down the middle of the sheet and press/shape into a compact log.
  • Brush edge of pastry with egg then roll up. Lightly press/seal on the edge with egg wash and arrange seam-side down.

BAKE

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, or lightly grease with nonstick cooking oil spray.
  • Slice each log into four equal pieces for party-sized sausage rolls, or two pieces for long full-sized sausage rolls. Brush the tops with egg wash.
  • Arrange rolls on baking sheets and bake for 30-35 minutes, rotating baking sheets around halfway through cook time to ensure they bake evenly. The pastry shouold be crispy and golden brown.
  • Let cool to the touch. Serve hot (or warm) with ketchup/tomato sauce.
