Ingredients

  • 150g good quality sausagemeat
  • 150g British pork mince
  • 100g ready-cooked quinoa
  • 1 tbsp English mustard
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • Bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 5-6 fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
  • 3 large filo pastry sheets
  • 25g butter, melted

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Mix all the ingredients, except the filo and butter, in a bowl with some seasoning. Fry a little of the mix to taste, then season again if needed.
  2. Lay a sheet of filo pastry on the work surface, brush with a little butter, then place another sheet on top. Brush over a little more butter, then lay the final sheet on top. Cut lengthways to give 2 rectangular strips. Spoon half the sausage mixture along a long edge of one of the pastry strips, moulding the mixture into a sausage shape with your hands as you go. Repeat with the rest of the mixture on the other pastry strip. Brush the exposed pastry with a little of the remaining butter, then roll up, enclosing the sausagemeat. Brush all over with more butter, then slice into 5cm sausage rolls.
  3. Put the rolls on a lined baking sheet, keeping the pastry join underneath, then transfer to the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden and the sausagemeat is cooked through
