So since I am Australian I decided to add this true Australian dish. Sausage rolls and meat pies in Australia are a staple. When I first moved over to the US I was very disappointed that you could not find these little fellows here. Then when I took Jared to Australia he fell in love with sausage rolls. So thats when I started to experiment with things and try to re create these little beauties. This is the closest I have been able to get the recipe to the real Australian sausage rolls. When I make these I really just eye ball all my spices and bread crumbs. So I have estimated the following ingredients to what I think they may be. In true Australian fashion enjoy with lots of ketchup! Also try hot sauce or the Asian sweet chili sauce. Hope you enjoy them.
Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!!
- 1 package puff pastry
- 1/2lb ground beef
- 1/2lb ground pork sausage (breakfast sausage)
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 small white onion, diced finely
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1-2 cups Italian bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Thaw puff pastry sheets out on counter.
In a large bowl combine all ingredients until well mixed. You want a slightly mushy consistency.
Cut each sheet of pasty into 6 rectangles. In each rectangle add spoonfuls of meat mixture in the middle. Fold pastry over meat and press seam closed.
Place pastries on a baking sheet. Score the top of each pastry with 3 slices. Make sure you don’t skip this step otherwise you will end up with the huge mess (Trust me!)
Bake for about 20-30 minutes or until pastries are golden brown.
