It is National Vegetarian Week between 10th – 16th May and so we thought we’d share a veggie recipe from our cookery school archives. You could be fooled into thinking that these are just a cheese and onion roll, but trust us… The inspiration for the seasoning comes straight from a traditional herb and spice blend for sausage making.
Cooks in: 30 mins
Ready to roll puff pastry block
275g fresh breadcrumbs
225g grated Fowlers Mature Cheddar
1 large onion, grated
3 tbsp thick double cream
1 tsp freshly chopped parsley
1 tsp freshly chopped sage
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 tsp freshly chopped thyme
1 ½ level tsp mustard powder
2 eggs (1 to bind, 1 to glaze)
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Remove the pastry from the fridge and roll it into a rectangle, with the thickness of a £1 coin.
For the filling, in a bowl combine the remaining ingredients, reserving one of the eggs for the glaze.
Divide the pastry into two, lengthways with a sharp knife.
Take half of the filling mixture and make it into a long sausage shape along the centre of one of the strips of the pastry. Then roll the pastry around it. Brush some egg wash along the edge of the pastry, seal with a fork.
Repeat the above step, with the remaining mixture and pastry.
Cut into 24 small segments, glaze with egg wash, place on a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, until risen and golden brown.
