Strike while the oven is Hot ( with Georgies help)!
George is part of our everyday life so whatever we are doing georgie has his nose in it!
As the oven was already hot from the bottles I had sterilised for the pickles, I decided to do a batch of our family favourite sausage rolls,I have made these ever since our children were little and you can vary the recipe by having different flavours eg: curry or chilli.We mainly just love them as is.
1kg sausage mince
2 onions chopped finely
2pkt french onion soup mix(homebrand)these are optional but add a lovely flavour.
2 slices of bread soaked in milk
10 sheets puff pasty laid out on bench to defrost while you mix:
Have oven on at about 180 (my oven is a very hot one so it is plenty for mine).grease oven trays (I use spray) .
Put sausage mince in a lge bowl,add french onion soup mix, chopped onions,eggs and squeeze milk from bread and add it too( the bread saoked in milk takes up any fats in your mix).Mix all together.
Place a line of mixture along one edge of your pastry,and as firmly as you can roll it up.
So after a day of rain ,rain and more rain,we have heaps of pickles 16 jars, soup for dinner tonight and 6 containers for the freezer and one for my brother,54 sausage rolls in the freezer less the one that Georgie pinched ,a slice to give my helpers tomorrow when we wrap more gifts for the elderly next week and do their showbags.
The house smells lovely,the fire is so warm and we feel so blessed to have a full cupbard. The pickles I will share with friends and family and the Worcter Sauce I made the other day also shared.We are thinking of getting a bradmaker, but I am worried Bob will fall in love with it and we will get even fatter!!! We are reading everyones blogs to see how much they use theirs,Ido not want it to be a fad item.Each day we are using up things in our cupbaord so we can use less bought addatives and more back to basics( hence why we had french onion soup in the pantry)I had to go buy the cakemix as the slice was so yummy and it does not hurt now and then to stray.So I look forward to using everyone recipes and hope you can make use of some of our family favourites.Have a lovely day.
