Bite sized Sausage Rolls (Nigerian Style)

image

It’s elections day in Nigeria today and as such most people are indoors.  I am because I could not get my PVC (Permanent Voters Card), it got lost somehow in the custody of INEC. I know however that whoever it is Nigeria elects, the road ahead would not be smooth.
So while others defy the weather and vote, I’m keeping my family entertained with some snacks.

My little oga woke up this morning and asked my Help to please make him some sausage. She is particularly fond of him so she instantly swung to action while I supervised and read out the recipe to her. Blessing is a very smart girl and despite being unschooled, she assimilates fast. I’m proud to see her bloom under my tutelage.

So here is Sausage Rolls made by Blessing (my help and “P.A”)

Recipe
For Short Crust Pastry
350 g Flour (3 cups)sieved
170 g Margarine
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 Egg.
8 tbsp of water or less

– In a bowl combine flour, margarine, baking powder, salt and rub using the tips of your fingers until it resembles bread crumbs

Making Rolls
– Roll your pastry on a lightly dusted board (dust with flour or corn flour)

image

image

– Using a piping bag, put the sausage meat vertically at the edge of the pastry as seen in the picture below

image

– Roll over and brush beaten egg at the tip to seal.

image

– Cut roll into pieces, depending on the length you want.

image

– Place the rolls on a baking sheet , brush with beaten egg and bake for 20 – 30 minutes in a pre heated oven.

image

– In between baking,  bring out the rolls and brush again with beaten egg and return into the oven until slightly golden brown in colour.

Serve either hot or cold, with your favourite drink.

      Hi Tawa. There is already a picture on the blog along with the picture of other items. Satis is a brand name, what you need is ground beef sausage. The cold/frozen food section of any good store should have it.

      Hi Tawa
      There is a picture of the Satis already on the post along with other pictures. Satis is a brand name. What is used for Sausage roll is ground beef sausage and not hot dog. You can use the Chi brand or UAC brand if you are in Nigeria.
