½ cup red wine
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp salt
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed if frozen
Extra rosemary to garnish (Find out how to grow your own)
Tomato sauce to serve
- Preheat oven to 200°C.
- Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, rosemary and garlic and cook until softened. Let cool.
- Moisen the breadcrumbs with red wine.
- Place cooked onion mixture in a large bowl. Add the lamb, breadcrumbs, 1 egg and salt. Combine well.
- Divide the mixture into 2 portions. Place one portion down the centre of each pastry half. Place the remaining eggs in a small bowl and lightly beat. Brush the pastry edges with egg and roll to enclose. Place the rolls, seam-side down, on 2 oven trays and brush with the egg.
- Using a small sharp knife, cut slits in the top of the sausage rolls. Cook for 25–30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Serve with rosemary sprigs and tomato sauce.
