Tiny Thai Sausage Rolls

A few weeks ago it was my turn to host our Cooking Club. It was nearly a full house, we just missed one.

I have had my eyes on these tiny sausage rolls ever since I ripped the recipe from one of the Waitrose food magazines. And I should have done them for one of our picnics in the summer,, never mind. They are here now.

You probably have loads of recipes for sausage rolls but these ones surprised everyone. The Thai curry paste gives them a great flavour kick.

This is what you will need to make them:

500g pack ground pork
1 bunch salad onions, finely sliced
20g pack fresh coriander, chopped
½ x 20g pack fresh mint, chopped
2 tsp Bart Thai Fish Sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
6 tsp Bart Red Thai Curry Paste
375g pack ready-rolled puff pastry
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp sesame seeds

Mix the pork, salad onions, coriander, mint, fish sauce, soy sauce and red Thai curry paste together in a medium bowl. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour for the flavours to develop.
Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Unroll the pastry onto a lightly floured work surface and roll it into a 30cm x 40cm rectangle. Cut in half lengthways and spread half the pork mixture down the centre of each piece in a long sausage shape.
Brush the exposed pastry with the beaten egg, then roll the pastry around the filling and seal carefully. Brush each roll with egg and sprinkle over the sesame seeds and freshly ground black pepper. Chill for 30 minutes in the freezer, this will make cutting them much easier.
Using a sharp serrated knife and a sawing action, cut each roll into 15 equal lengths. Arrange on 2 baking trays, with the joins underneath. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and serve warm with sweet chilli sauce for dipping.

This is how I prepared for the girls at home, I managed to join to tables in my daughter's playroom  and it turn out well. Judge for yourself

And these are their beauties
