Lattice sausage rolls, a frugal way to use up a spare sausage and some pastry.

Really this isn’t a recipe, simply a reminder that an extra meal can often be rustled up from ingredients you may have thrown away or eaten as a “cooks perk”.

Having made a lattice topped blackberry and apple pie on Sunday I had a little of the lattice pastry left over. Being me I’d wrapped it in cling film and popped it into the fridge for use another time. As it had been cut to make a lattice those opportunities may be few and far between and I could have frozen the dough too.

The following day whilst roasting a chicken with all the trimmings. You know stuffing, bacon and sausages and a lemon too. I could have put all the sausages around the chicken, they would have been eaten but I kept back three to make into sausage rolls with the lattice pastry.

The sausages were skinned and a mix of chilli flakes and herbs mixed in to half the mix, before reforming into a sausage shape and covering with the lattice. The second half was mixed with a dollop of red onion relish and again wrapped in lattice puff pastry.

They were given a quick egg wash and baked at 200c for 15 minutes on a tray lined with baking parchment.

A scrap of pastry and a few of sausages, with the addition of some salad leaves made lunch for two on Tuesday!
