Giant Sausage Roll With Cranberry

Lots of sausage meat and cranberry sauce available around Christmas time so put it to good use with this tasty family meal. The recipe makes enough for 6 people and it will keep for 4 days in the fridge. To reheat, place on a baking tray and put int he oven at 180C fan for 10 minutes.

If you can’t find sausage meat, buy sausages and squeeze the meat from the skins.

1 onion, finely diced

2 tsp ground ginger

1.5 tsp cinnamon

600g sausage meat (see note above)

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme

320g ready rolled puff pastry

260g jar cranberry sauce

2 slices prosciutto

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp poppy seeds (optional)

Pre heat the oven to 180C fan.

Heat a splash of oil in a small frying pan and gently sauté the onions for about 10 minutes or until soft.

Have the sausage meat ready in a bowl. Add the cooked onions along with ground ginger, cinnamon, thyme, salt and a good grinding of black pepper and mix with your hands until well combined.

Unroll the puff pastry leaving it on the paper in which it is wrapped and place on a baking tray. Put the sausage meat lengthways down the middle of the pastry, spoon cranberry sauce on top of the meat and finish with the prosciutto covering the sauce.

Fold over one side of the pastry, brush the other side with egg and fold that over and gently seal the edges to make a roll. Brush roll with the remaining egg wash and sprinkle with poppy seeds if using. Put in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Cut the sausage roll in half and place them side by side on the tray and bake for 40 minutes.

For a main course, serve 2 slices with salad or veg and some extra cranberry sauce on the side.
