Loaded Sausage Rolls


500g The Meat Box Beef or Lamb Sausages
1/3 cup couscous
1 tsp olive oil
1 carrot
1 onion
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
50g feta cheese
3 sheets flaky puff pastry
1 egg
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1. Defrost pastry sheets
2. Prepare the couscous by pouring over 1/3 cup boiling water and 1 teaspoon olive oil, cover with a lid or glad wrap and set aside for 5 minutes
3. Squeeze the sausage meat out of the casing into a large bowl
4. Finely dice onion and grate the carrot. We used the smaller side of a box grater for fine shreds of carrot
5. Add carrot and onion to the sausage meat along with paprika and cumin
6. Fluff couscous with a fork and add to the sausage meat
7. Using wet hands or a wooden spoon mix the filling until well combined.
8. Crumble in the feta and lightly mix
9. Cut each square of pastry in half so you have 6 rectangles
10. Divide the sausage meat filling into 6 and form a long sausage in the centre of each pastry rectangle
11. In a small bowl whisk the egg and brush a little egg down one side of each rectangle
12. Fold the pastry over to form a large sausage roll, cut this into your desired size with a sharp knife
13. Place on a lined baking tray and brush with the remaining egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds
14. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 180C fan bake or until pastry is golden and puffed up
