Friday night dinners in our home typically mean something fun like Pizza, Mexican, Pasta however it’s usually no side servings of vegetables, but that doesn’t mean no veg!! On this night I made a double batch of homemade beef sausage rolls. I’ll freeze some to have on hand for lunch boxes, I can easily pop them in the oven the night before and give the kiddies something different for lunch.
You could grate and finely dice the vegetables, however I put my in the thermomix (you could also use the food processor) and blitzed for a few seconds
Place all ingredients into bowl. I put eggs in and give them a little whisk before mixing all ingredients together with my hands.
Cut pastry sheets in half to make 2 long rolls per each sheet. Divide mixture evenly into 12 portions, shape each portion into long logs placing two portions on each pastry sheet
Egg was the middle of the pastry sheets to help the pastry stick together after rolling
Roll pastry over sausage mixture and slice into 6 even portions. Egg wash the top
Sprinkle with sesame seeds
Bake in oven until brown and cooked through
