Ingredients

  • lamb mince 500g
  • fresh breadcrumbs 50g
  • eggs 2 large
  • mint leaves a small handful, roughly chopped
  • lemon 1, zested
  • olive oil 1 tbsp
  • red onion 1, finely chopped
  • garlic 2 cloves, crushed
  • dried chilli flakes ½ tsp
  • dried oregano 1 tsp
  • puff pastry 2 sheets (2 x 320g)
  • black and white sesame seeds a handful

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. For the sausage roll filling, put the lamb mince into a large bowl along with the breadcrumbs, 1 egg, the mint leaves and lemon zest.

  • Step 2

    Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a low-medium heat and cook the onion until translucent. Add the garlic, chilli and oregano, and cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Set aside for a few minutes until cool.

  • Step 3

    Tip the onion mixture into the lamb mixture and use clean hands to combine together until everything is evenly distributed.

  • Step 4

    To assemble, unroll the sheets of puff pastry and cut each piece into 2 long rectangles. You will only need 3, so use the extra to make something else (hello, cheese straws!). Divide the filling into 3 and form into a strip along the middle of each piece of pastry. Brush one long edge of the pastry with a little water and fold the other long edge over the filling to form 1 long sausage roll. You want to make sure the seam is well sealed so use a fork to gently press shut. With the seam side down, use a serrated knife to cut each roll into 4 equal pieces.

  • Step 5

    Put the rolls onto baking-paper-lined baking trays and brush with the remaining beaten egg, then sprinkle with black and white sesame seeds.

  • Step 6

    Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is fully cooked. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
