Nathan, Nat and Shaun love a sausage roll and are always on the hunt for the best Perth has got to offer. We make the work experience kids bring us what they think are the 'best in Perth'... that is how we judge whether we like them or not!
One of our super listeners Popey, reckons he has the recipe for the world's best sausage roll! His recipe is here for all of you to try - give it a try, then let us know what you think! This is exactly what Popey sent us, so we're not going to tamper with it... you'll need to read through it all to make sure you've got all the ingredients!
alright work experience kid. get a paper and pen, write this down...
get 6 puff pastry sheets and not homebrand. pappas or a good brand pastry. 1kg beef mince and 500g of pork and veal mince (if not, just pork) about 3 slices of wholemeal bread, 2 eggs, one whole onion and half a red onion finely diced. put three cloves of... garlic, half a green capsicum, 2 carrots, a tomato, mushrooms if u want...all in a food processor and chop the whole lot into a semi puree!.. i then splash in a few good blobbies of worcestershire sauce, ground up fresh herbs but especially parsley and a good sprinkle of curry powder.. i think thats it.. now wash ya hands, get ya rings off if ur wearing any get ya hands into that bowl and squeeze the living piss out of it all. miix it up and im talkin good..get right into it!!
wash ya hands again and layout the pastry sheets and put two lines of filling down each one. cut the pastry sheets in half and fold it over the filling using a combination of beaten eggs with a dollop of milk to wash the join with a pastry brush and stick the pastry. wash the whole lot with the eggs n milk mix then chop them up into portion sizes. lay them joined side down on a baking tray (line it with baking paper...helps in the clean up) and space them out, then wash the good side which is now facing up, with the milk n egg mix.
poke a couple of little holes to help the filling cook. the oven should be on about 180c but i hope you know ur oven coz every bloody ones different..if its a standard fan forced oven, i found use the upper level first for about 10 minutes (this helps cook the filling moreso), then move them lower in the oven for about... 7 minutes, then spin the tray around and let them go for another 7 minutes. this is so they all cook equal! just make sure its preheated and keep an eye on them!! turn them over if the underside isnt cooking enough but you'll find the knack anyway!!
PHEW!! ok thats it!! please Nova, tell Nathan i wrote this procedure out and work experience kid, now that you'll be in the good books, feel free to hook me up with stereosonic tickets! enjoy everyone!! oh and parents, its a great way to get kids to eat their veges! sometimes i put zucchini, brocolli, all kinds of veges in there! if it puree'd, they have noooooo idea!! ;-)
