I hear that New York has just discovered the sausage roll?? Really? Well I reckon it must be due to the lack of ‘proper’ sausages in the states perhaps? Dunno?
Well I though u would try a new pastry recipe from Delia today.. Is a rainy heat cold day.. So what better than savoury baking right?
So this recipe calls for plain flour.. Salt and grated lard.. I added some thyme to make it a little more interesting.. Plus some Bristol blend pepper..
Cut it through.
And just the gentlest splash of ice water to bring it together .. Finally getting it into a sort of ball shape..
In the meantime get some great sausage meat.. Adding a little chopped raw pink onion, sage, white pepper and a good scrape of nutmeg..
Attempt to roll out the pastry.. I say attempt as this is serous short stuff it’s crumbly as the crumbliest thing you can imagine!
It takes some care I tell you!
The oven is on 220 real money.. Getting hot..
Sausage meat placed into the pastry..
Sticking with egg wash..
Repeat until all used up..cut and into the oven
Left to cool..
And snaffled with of course a drop of tommy K ..
