Lamb and feta sausage rolls – the perfect Australia Day treat!
Homemade sausage rolls are always a hit at any party or gathering. I think the best thing about them is they still taste delicious after they have gone a bit cold. I made these lamb and feta sausage rolls for my daughter’s birthday party and they disappeared very quickly – not sure if the adults or kids ate more of them! It was only last year I made homemade sausage rolls for the first time and they were so easy I couldn’t believe I had never made them before.
These lamb and feta sausage rolls are a slightly different take on your standard sausage roll. They have fruit chutney for an added sweetness and mint for freshness. I used some grainy sourdough bread (whizzed up in the Thermomix for 10 seconds/speed 6) for the breadcrumbs but you could use any bread or even panko breadcrumbs if you prefer. The lamb and feta sausage rolls are great to freeze post cooking so all you need to do it warm them up in the oven for a speedy treat.
So why not celebrate this Australia day with some lamb sausage rolls and a nice cold beer. Oh and don’t forget the tomato sauce!
