All cooked out!

After all the cooking and eating of the holiday season, I'm feeling a bit cooked out. I am definitely ready for some light and simple food, but the snow and cold weather continues and there is still a need for some comfort food.

I can't remember the last time I made sausage rolls, I had flashbacks to making them with my mum with very pink sausagemeat. I was inspired by the sausage rolls that Delia featured in her Happy Christmas book. I didn't make my own pastry and the sausage meat came courtesy of my SIL who got it from an excellent butcher. It is pork and apple sausagemeat and I added some fresh sage I had left over from the turkey stuffing. Anyway they were delicious and I shouldn't leave it so long the next time.

lots of sausage surrounded by a thin layer of lovely pastry - just how good sausage rolls should be! :-)

I have never made sausage rolls. These look very delicious. I think it's fun to make them. Great for parties.

I am so with you! I am baked AND cooked out. Ugh! That's why I am getting back to basics so I can survive the winter on zero energy. Those sausage rolls look amazing, that looks like cooking to me though... LOL

I don't think anybody really makes their own puff pastry any more when you can buy such wonderful all butter puff. I made it at school but not since. And pork and apple sausagemeat - that must have tasted divine! They look gorgeous!

Help! My husband got the Delia Christmas book from a friend. Now I'll have to make sausage rolls...not a great choice of sausage meats here. Lots of chorizo though.
