Made it monday.... sausage rolls with hidden goodness

Last week I was tired of fighting to the younger two girls to eat all their dinner so I decided to roll all of dinner into one and see what happened.

Our Harvest Hub sends out recipes each week and this one was great. Sausage rolls packed with vegetables! U2 and I liked them too.

It says that you cant taste the sweet chilli sauce but Goofy did complain about it being a bit spicy at one point so next time I might leave that out but other than that it was a winner.

Any other recipes with hidden goodness out there?

So here is the recipe....

3.Fiona’s Sausage rolls
4 sheets of frozen puff pastry defrost while making mixture below
• 500g sausage roll mince from butcher 1 onion finely chopped 1 grated carrot 1 grated zucchini same amount of grated pumpkin 1 stalk finely chopped celery 1/2 bunch of spinach finely chopped, (you can use ½ box of frozen spinach 250g drain well) 1 cup bread crumbs 2 eggs 3 tbsp tomato paste 1 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce -don't worry there is no chilli taste at all for young children Milk (for brushing)

Preheat oven to 200C.
Combine all ingredients in large bowl and mix with your hands until mixture seems even. Cut puff pastry
in half so you have 8 sheets to work with. Lay the mixed ingredients along the middle of pastry then
press together both long side edges, leave ends open. Lay seam facing downwards on baking tray lined
with baking paper (or greased with oil). Brush tops of sausage rolls with a little milk when ready to bake.
Bake for 20 minutes or until pastry is brown.
You can freeze any extra sausage rolls you are not ready to cook straight away until needed
for another night.
Fiona serves this to her daughter who is 2½ with a side salad with or without tomato sauce.
