15 Nov Smoked Bacon & Irish Black Butter Sausage Rolls
250g Cooking Bacon ( it’s a mix of odd cuts sold in supermarkets) mixed with 1 roughly chopped medium onion.
150g Fresh Breadcrumbs
2 Large Free Range Eggs
1 Medium Apple ( Granny Smith is a good choice)
1 Tbsp Irish Black Butter
250g Pre Rolled Puff Pastry
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Place the bacon, onions and Irish Black Butter in a food processor and blitz then empty into a large mixing bowl with the fresh breadcrumbs.
Add the peeled and grated apple, mix well, add a little pepper then add 1 of the beaten eggs. Mix well. Empty out of the bowl, split into two and roll into a long even sausage the width of the puff pastry.
Unroll the puff pastry, place 1 of the sausages along its width, brush thoroughly with egg wash from the second beaten egg. Roll the pastry over and create a lip, press down with a fork to create a seal. Cut into 3, place on a baking sheet and brush with the egg wash. Repeat with the remaining sausage and pastry.
Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until golden. Can be enjoyed hot or cold.
