We kiwis love ourselves a good sausage roll. For those unacquainted with the sausage roll, it is quite simply sausage meat wrapped in flaky pastry. For decades they have been consumed, dripping in bright red tomato sauce at little kid’s birthday parties and purchased by big kids from petrol stations with their brother – the mince pie.
In the last 10 or so years the sausage roll has been injected with new flavours and has become a regular on the finger food scene. There have been beef, blue cheese and bacon versions, Thai chicken, even lamb and mint and they have been sprinkled with sesame seeds and poppy seeds, cut on angles and served with relish.
This sausage roll goes one step further in poshness (I know this isn’t a word) and instead of mince, uses eye fillet. It’s a melt in the mouth morsel fit for any kind of gathering.
