  • 500g (1 lb.) of sausage mince
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of mixed herbs (use your favourite herbs)
  • ¼ cup of breadcrumbs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 thick slices of white bread
  • warm water
  • 6 sheets of ready rolled puff pastry
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 200 °C (400 °F).
  2. Remove puff pastry sheets from freezer and thaw to room temperature.
  3. Peel and roughly chop the onion and then give it 2-3 pulses in the food processor (or finely chop or grate it).
  4. Combine the sausage mince, onion, mixed herbs, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  5. Cut the crusts off the bread and put it into another bowl and then add just enough warm water to cover the bread – stand for 5 minutes.
  6. Drain off the excess water from the bread and then gently squeeze the bread while tilting the bowl to remove as much water as possible.
  7. Add bread to sausage mince mixture and mix thoroughly.
  8. Use a dessertspoon to place a sausage like strip of the mince mixture along one edge of a sheet of pastry.
  9. Roll edge of pastry over filling and continue rolling until filling is completely enclosed in the pastry.
  10. Cut along the edge of the pastry to separate the roll from the remaining pastry.
  11. Repeat steps 8 – 10 with the remaining pastry and mince mixture.
  12. Lightly flatten rolls using the back of a knife at 1 cm intervals and then cut the rolls into 2 inch (5 cm) lengths.
  13. Put rolls onto a lined baking tray and brush with beaten egg.
  14. Bake rolls at 200 °C for 20 minutes and then reduce heat to 180 °C and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  15. Cool slightly on tray and then serve.
