Scrolling through Facebook today, I saw a photo set with pictures of someone baking something and the header said something like: “You can’t have a good New Years party without sausage rolls!”. My first though was something like “yeah.. right” but then I got flashbacks from pigging out the sausage rolls my mom used to make around Christmas and New Years. I guess the photo set had some kind of truth to it. So, surprise, surprise, here’s the recipe for (lucky New Years) sausage rolls!
-450 grams of gluten-free bread mix (I used Peak’s)
-1 sachet of yeast (it has about 15-20 grams in it)
-300-350 grams of ground beef (or half-half minced meat).
-370 ml lukewarm water or milk (I used water, and it didn’t mess up the taste)
-Your favorite spice mix: I used chicken spices (pre-made with salt, pepper and more) but you can use pepper, salt, nutmeg > think Autumn, Winter flavors.
-Gluten-free breadcrumbs (approx. half a cup).
How to make it!
Pour all the bread-mix into a bowl. Make a small hollow in your bread-mix pile and pour in the milk (or water) .
After this, add the yeast to the mixture and mix into the milk (or water).
Gradually mix in more and more of the surrounding bread-mix into the milk/water+yeast. After this, you can knead your bread mix.
Flop it around a bit and feel the mixture: if it’s too dry, you can add a small amount of milk/water, if it’s too wet, add some extra flour.
Pull the dough apart, and roll into small balls. With this recipe,I made 15. Let the dough balls rise under plastic foil for about 10 minutes. Use this time to make your filling.
Take 1 egg, your meat of choice, your spices of choice and your breadcrumbs and mix. Again, feel what you need: if your mixture is too runny: add more breadcrumbs; too dry: add a bit more egg.
Once you’ve found your consistency, roll the meat into sausages (see above).
Take one of your dough balls, and roll out into a long, oval shape.
Put the sausage in, lengthwise.
Fold the dough over the sausage on the short ends first, and then over the long sides.
Whisk the remaining egg in a small bowl, and with it, give the top of your roll an egg wash!
Put in the oven for about 25 minutes at 200ºC. Take out when golden brown on the top!
Enjoy your lucky sausage rolls!!
