I made this snack for the first time for a girls night and went in very well.
They got eaten pretty fast so I did not have the time to write and shoot them.
Obviously Summer is already gone and Winter is on the doorstep.
My husband is skipping a whole season and going to ski tomorrow and I decided to make sausage rolls for a après ski snack.
I`m not giving up on Autumn and I think we are going to catch some good days before we start freezing again.
So this recipe makes a perfect brunch or picnic treat.
No man in its right mind would try to make a croissant dough at home, neither would I.
OK I feel a bit ashamed, but really I know for a fact that only in France in high level bakeries are making croissant dough from a scratch…
On to the recipe
2 cans of croissant dough /normally 1 can makes 6 /
300 gr. good quality beef or if you prefer pork fresh sausages
3 carrots grated
fennel seeds, pepper
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard /whole grain if you have, if not any kind will do/
Preheat the oven to 170 C.
In a pan squeeze the sausages out of the skin.Mix in the rest of the above and dry fry for a minute until the colour changes.
Meanwhile, pop open the croissant packs and unroll.
Put in each triangle`s wide end one big tbsp. from the filling, pull the sides in towards the middle like you are folding a package.
Roll them up, the main idea is for the filling not to come out while baking.
Lay the rolls on a baking sheet and toss them in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden.
They are really good warm straight from the oven, but as already said they make the prefect picnic or lunch box treat.
So many words for something so simple….
I know it is not nearly as healthy as I want but let it be this time only.
This is it from me.
