Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon butter, for greasing
1 large onion, roughly chopped
5 small carrots, peeled and grated
2 cups cooked, cooled brown rice
1 cup homemade breadcrumbs
500g sausage mince
3 sprigs parsley
10 chives
2 teaspoons salt
3 pinches black pepper
5 sheets store-bought puff pastry
1 egg, beaten
tomato sauce, to serve (optional)


Quantity Ingredient
sharp knife and chopping board
large baking trays
measuring spoons
food processor
measuring cups
pastry brush
large mixing bowl


  1. Ask a grown-up to help you preheat the oven to 180ºC. Grease the baking trays with the butter.
  2. Ask a grown-up to help you put the onion into a food processor and blitz it to a paste. Once the grown-up has removed the blade from the processor, tip the paste into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the grated carrot, cooked rice, breadcrumbs and sausage mince to the bowl. Use scissors to snip the parsley and chives into the bowl then add the salt and pepper. Make sure your hands are very clean then use them to scrunch all the ingredients together with your fingers until they are evenly mixed.
  4. Ask a grown-up to help you cut each sheet of pastry in half. Lay a piece of the pastry out on a clean work surface. Use a ½ cup measure to scoop up a portion of the sausage mixture and place it on top of the pastry. Use your fingers to form it into a long sausage that goes along the centre of the pastry; try to make it the same thickness all the way along. Roll the pastry over the sausage, then fold up the bottom of the pastry to meet it – it should overlap a little bit. Carefully turn the long sausage roll over so the join is underneath. Repeat with the remaining pieces of pastry and the rest of the sausage mixture.
  5. Ask a grown-up to help you cut each long roll into 7 equal pieces.
  6. Place the sausage rolls on baking trays, leaving a little space between them. Brush the top of each sausage roll with a little beaten egg.
  7. Ask a grown-up to help you put the trays in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden and flaky.
  8. When they are cooked, ask a grown-up to take them out of the oven. Arrange the sausage rolls on a platter and serve with tomato sauce if you like.
