Okay enough with the suggestions – just get making! 😀 Oh wait one more suggestion – a dessert for afterwards 😀 A little scoop or 2 of Baileys Ice Cream!
- 60g (2 slices) of bread, quartered
- 1 onion, peeled and halved
- 1 large apple, quartered and cored
- ½ tsp mixed herbs, dried
- 1 tsp sage, dried
- 1½ tsp whole grain mustard
- 6 quality herbed sausages
- 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, defrosted
- 1 egg, whisked with a fork
- Preheat oven to 210°C.
- Place bread into TM bowl and chop 4 sec / speed 6. Set aside.
- Place onion and apple into TM bowl and chop 3 sec / speed 5.
- Add bread crumbs, mixed herbs, sage and mustard.
- Cut open the sausage casings and squeeze out the fillings into the breadcrumb mix and combine 10 sec / speed 4 / Reverse.
- Line a baking tray and join the sheets of pastry using a little water along one edge to form a rectangle. Press down the edge to seal it well.
- Scoop the sausage mix neatly into a strip down the centre of the pastry leaving the pastry 5cm bare at the top and bottom and bare on the sides.
- Cut a corner of pastry off each corner as shown in photo.
- Slice 1½ cm diagonal strips all the way along each side of the pastry.
- Fold the top and bottom ends over the filling and then criss cross the pastry strips alternatively over the filling like a braid.
Trim off any extra pastry at the end if necessary.
NB: this is a rustic dish so no need for absolute perfection.
- Brush the pastry all over with the egg and bake for 25-30 mins until golden brown.
