Packington Pork and Chicken Sausage Rolls

Ingredients

350g pork sausagemeat
100g leftover cooked chicken, finely chopped
2 tablespoons of fresh herbs, finely chopped (sage, rosemary & thyme are superb)
The zest of 2 lemons
Small handful of raisins / cranberries / nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 pack ready rolled puff pastry
To Top
1 egg, beaten with a pinch of salt
2 teaspoons nigella / sesame seeds

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Combine all the ingredients for the filling and stir to mix. If all the ingredients are finely chopped this will enable them all to be well distributed.
  2. Roll out the pastry and cut in half lengthways.
  3. Divide the sausage meat into two and spread along the length of each pastry strip leaving a gap all the way around.
  4. Flip the top of the pastry over the top of the sausagemeat stuffing. Then using a fork, press it down gently. Trim off any excess, then cut each of the long sausage rolls into 3-4 cm individual portions, depending on how big you would like them.
  5. Brush with your beaten egg wash and top with nigella / sesame seeds.
  6. Cook for approximately 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.
