Chicken Sausage Roll with Grated Apples

These sausage rolls are not just frankfurters wrapped in frozen puff pastry. That’s an easy way out if your children have some friends over and need a (sorta) child-friendly, time-saving, treats. However, I try to cut down consumption of frankfurters sausages, hot dogs or sausages that looked too polished and smooth. The easiest way to not consume them is just NOT TO BUY them 😉 But keeping some frozen mince is more convenient as you can make lots of things out from mince. One of them is this sausage roll.

I conducted a demo on this and I usually have a few regulars that come and when I said “I’m teaching sausage rolls today“, they all gave me a look of disbelief as they thought why am I teaching frankfurters wrapped in puff pastry ? Hehe. Nope, I said. The sausage is made from minced chicken and you can also make meatballs or burger patties out from it. But wrapping it in a layer of ready-frozen puff pastry seals the moisture of the sausage more than frying it as a meatball.

Sausage / meatball / burger patties usually contain lots of fat % to make it moist and tender when biting. But I went on to the ‘healthier’ version by adding grated apples. Apples are high in moisture and fiber. It acts as a substitute for fat and also giving it sweetness to the sausage roll.

  1. Thank you for the recipe! I already tried 2 from your blog. The rolls were great hit for supper tonight. I pulsed some chicken breast in processor and added extra sage together with the thyme (no oregano, no chives). I thought as sage is usually associated with pork so it would make the chicken little bit more sausagey 🙂 I don’t eat pork and I never had sausage roll in my life so it was great to try one. I did baked little bit higher than 200C on a silicone sheet, for about 30 mins to make them bit crispier. Kids and husband loved them too. I will post a review of the other recipe (Emeraude) I tried on my blog.

    1. Glad you liked them. Most sausage rolls use beef but since I don’t cook beef at home, pork and chicken was the easiest I can get hold of. Sage is a good idea! Actually, most herbs would work; good call.
