Aussie Sausage Rolls

I was born and raised in Australia, but moved to the U.S. when I got married. When I long for some Australian recipes, I bake up a batch of this sausage roll recipe and share them with neighbors or co-workers. —Melissa Landon, Port Charlotte, Florida

    These were wonderful! I followed the recipe with no changes, and I was very happy with the results. I made these for a cultural experience while our family was learning about Australia. I'd make them again--perfect for a game night or to accompany tomato soup!

    Heather- I see that you may be new to this recipe. The recipe has been rewritten. Previously, the instructions were confusing, and a post by Valerie saved the day. Please keep in mind that there is never any need to be rude to others. BTW, the recipe is delicious.

    Look better than they taste. They tend to soggy-up after time.

    This is a wonderful recipe and well written directions. If you can not follow them you must be a beginner cook, and asking for help is a good way to learn but please do not insult the writer in order to cover the fact that they assume you know more than you do!

    I have been making these for sixty years, but then..I am a brit. lolIn the USA I use Jimmy Dean, or any really good brand, as they seem to be less greasy.For the person confused by the cutting.. I beleive that she is taking each of the perforated strips, rolling out the sausage with her hands and placing it along the longest edge, then folling it up and cutting into the small bite size pieces.this is my way.. first I divide the sausage into twelve pieces. And have a small bowl of flour handy.Lets start with just one of the two sheets that are in the package. Roll it out to aprox the diamentions she gives. Then take a sharp knife and separate each section. Now you have three sections. Here is where I do it differently.I cut those three sections across the middle to make 6 smaller sections[__]I brush the edges with an egg wash. I also smear a small bit of mustard in the middle of each sheet.Dip your hands into the flour to make them less sticky. take one of the pieces of sausage and lightly roll it into the flour.Shape it into the longer length of the pastry square.. roll the sheet up and seal.You now have six rolls, from that ONE sheet.or twelve if you use both of the sheets in the package.Now you make the decision if you want these to remain big and serve one per person as a meal with a salad, ( it makes a gfeat lunch dish) or cut each roll in half as smaller rolls for snacks.If I am cutting them smaller, I first pop them into the freezer for about 20 min before cutting them. It just makes it easier to cut.I then continue to solidly freeze them on a tray and then put them all into a zip lock bag with the bake time and temp written on it. (400* for 20-22 min.I always have them in the freezer and ready to go. Buy the sausage when it is on sale and have a bake day.
