Prep Time:

10 minutes

Cook Time:

20-25 minutes

Serves: 4


300g pork sausage meat

150g Boursin Cranberry & Pepper (Or any cream cheese)

Plain flour (for rolling out pastry)

250g all butter puff pastry

For the egg wash:

1 egg

25ml milk



1. Place the sausage meat into a mixing bowl, add the Boursin Cranberry & Pepper and mix together well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

2. On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry to a 5mm thickness. Cut into four squares.

3. Divide the meat mixture into four and shape into sausages. Place on to the pastry squares.

4. Using a pastry brush and a little cold water, gently brush the pastry around the sausage meat and then carefully fold the pastry over and around the meat, forming a sausage roll.

5. Pinch the seal of the pastry together and place on to a baking tray with parchment paper, making sure the seal of the pastry is on the bottom.

6. To make the egg wash, add the eggs and milk together with a pinch of salt and gently whisk. Brush the sausage rolls with egg wash.

7. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for approximately 20 minutes, until golden brown in colour.

8. Allow to cool on a wire rack, before serving warm.
