Baby Sausage Rolls (aka Pigs in Blankets)

Crispy, puff pastry encased little bites of sausage heaven, these two ingredient gems are always a huge hit (unless you eat them all yourself first).


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 package turkey or pork breakfast sausages (not the fully cooked kind)
  • 1 package puff pastry sheets
  • 1/2 cup steak sauce
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam
  • flour

DIRECTIONS

  1. Let pastry defrost on counter about 20 minutes before using
  2. Make a lengthwise slice in each sausage and remove casing
  3. Cut pastry sheets into 3 sections, and lay one section on a floured work surface
  4. Use rolling pin or bottle to make sheet section a little thinner and longer
  5. Place 3 sausages (without their casings) end to end on pastry sheet
  6. Roll sheet over sausages into a long snug tube, and cut off excess pastry
  7. Cut each tube into 8 pieces and place on lightly greased baking sheet (you can use parchment or wax paper instead if you like)
  8. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until lightly brown
  9. Mix steak sauce and jam and use as dipping sauce

Shepherd’s Pie with Tots

The crunchy deliciousness of tots instead of mashed potatoes on top of this is a most welcome change. Make it


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • ½ of yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon each Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup cut frozen vegetables (your choice, I used carrots, parsnips and beets)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 - 16 ounce bag frozen tater tots

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. In an oven proof skillet (cast iron is ideal) heat oil and cook onions until translucent; then add garlic and cook until fragrant about 45 seconds or so
  3. Add in the ground beef, cook until almost done and season with salt and pepper
  4. Mix in tomato paste then sprinkle in flour, cook out flour about a minute or so then stir in broth and Worcestershire sauce; mix well - add a little more broth if it’s too thick, but you don’t want it runny
  5. Add in the frozen vegetables and parsley and mix well
  6. Add the frozen tots on top
  7. Bake in the oven 30-40 minutes then broil on high towards the last minute of cooking time until tots are a nice crispy golden color
