First attempt at sausage rolls and I think they’ve turned out pretty well smell amazing anyway! Got up early and made these before work so I can have two for lunch later.
These tasty nibbles are a picnic food favourite – and they’re slimming-friendly too… Let’s roll!

Ingredients For Slimming World sausage rolls
1 small onion, finely chopped
150g lean pork mince (5% fat or less)
6 Slimming World Free Food Pork Sausages, thawed and skinned
1 small Cox’s apple, peeled, cored and finely diced
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage
1 medium egg, beaten
2 x 39g filo pastry sheets
low-calorie cooking spray
Instructions To Slimming World sausage rolls
Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Put the onion, pork mince, sausagemeat, apple, sage and most of the beaten egg into a bowl. Season lightly, then mix well.
Divide the mixture in half and shape into 2 long sausages – they should be as long as your sheets of filo pastry.
Lay 1 sheet of filo pastry on a work surface and spray lightly with a little low-calorie cooking spray. Lay the other sheet on top. Cut in half lengthways to make 2 strips.
Lay a long sausage down one side of each strip of pastry and brush the other long edge with the remaining beaten egg. Starting with the egg-free edge, roll up each sausage in the filo pastry, pressing the egg-brushed edge to make a good seal. Cut each long roll across into 12 equal-size pieces.
Spray a non-stick baking sheet with a little low-calorie cooking spray and arrange the sausage rolls about 5cm apart. Spray the top of each sausage roll with a little more low-calorie cooking spray and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. Serve hot.
