Okay So I'm going to come out and say It, I cheated - I didn't make my own pastry this week, don't look at me like that Paul, I was rushed and flustered, I didn't even get my post out when It was meant to. I've failed you Mr blue eyed Paul Hollywood.
But In my defense I've been stupidly busy and the big isle with ready made pastry in Sainsburys lured me in.. I tried to fight the urge but my bank balance agreed and told me 'Nah uh girl - you buying the cheap stuff today' and not one for confrontation and miserably looking at my post London fashion week purse I had to agree with it.

Alas this recipe may not be 'Great Blogger Bake Off' Worthy but it is really tasty and something super quick to whip up - And hey it looks more complicated than it is, So grab your aprons and geese up your baking trays! Lets bake a glorified sausage roll and fool people into thinking were geniuses in the kitchen.



What You Need 

  • 400g Pork meat 
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Small Red onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves 
  • 250g Of ready made Puff Pastry (I said don't look at me like that!) 
  • Flour for dusting
  • A little Oil for greasing
Ready? Lets Bake

  1. Heat your oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6/180 Fan
  2. Grease your baking try with some oil then cover with parchment paper
  3. In a large bowl add your sausage meat, then finely chop the onion and garlic and combine with the sausage meat with a fork, Break the egg in a cup and put aside 2 tbsp (You need this to glaze the plait) Then put the rest in with the sausage mixture. Mix with a fork. 
  4. Now clean and area on your work surface and sprinkle with flour roll your pastry out onto it and roll to about a 30 x 30 square 
  5. Place this square onto your baking tray
  6. Spoon the sausage mixture down the  the center of the square into a long sausage shape, leave a slight gap and the bottom and top
  7. Now to get plaiting, cut strips diagonally with a sharp knife down one side of the pastry with a space of 1.5cm I made about 12 strips - Repeat on other side. Brush the pastry with half the egg you saved
  8. Now tuck the gaps at the top of the sausage mixture over, and start to cross the strips of pastry over each other like a plait. Brush with the rest of the egg.
  9. Pop in the oven and Bake for about 35 - 40 mins, or untill Golden
  10. Take it out and its ready to serve, goes nice with some salad!
