Cheat's Sausage Rolls

This was a hard post to write. I'm staring at the picture attached to this post and it's making me hungry.

This is a recipe I pull out when:
a. I have nothing organised for dinner after a long day at work; and
b. Have all the ingredients in the pantry.

The secret ingredient is SPAM. You don't need to worry about having pork mince in the fridge/freezer, SPAM fits nicely in the pantry for a very long time. This feeds 2 hungry people, or can be a nice snack for a handful of people.

1 can of SPAM
1 piece of bread
1/4 cup of milk
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp of nutmeg
salt and pepper to season
3 sheets of puff pastry

  1. Preheat the oven at 180°C. Line a couple of baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  2. Lay out the puff pastry sheets to defrost.
  3. Open the SPAM into a mixing bowl, and mash up with a potato masher until meat is roughly minced.
  4. Soak bread in the milk and combine with the SPAM and the egg until evenly mixed.
  5. Add nutmeg, then season with salt and pepper.
  6. Place 1/3 of the mixture on each pastry sheet, about 3cm from the edge.
    Fold over the pastry to enclose the filling, ensuring the roll is well sealed, then cut off excess pastry.
  7. Make shallow, diagonal marks on each roll, then cut each roll into 5 pieces and place on lined baking trays.
  8. Whisk the egg yolk and a dash of milk, and glaze each sausage roll.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes until pastry is puffed and browned.
  10. Makes 15 pieces.

I tried this recipe and it's yummoooo....
So easy to make. I used Hot and Spicy Spam... I don't need tomato sauce as it's already has the flavour.
Thank you for sharing this :)
