betty's "aussie" style sausage rolls

Recipe by
Betty Bramanis

Sausage rolls are an iconic "Aussie" food and features in school and university canteens (Cafeterias), most food halls, hot food vans, hot food vendours and bakeries. You can buy them frozen, but these are so much cheaper and healthier due to grated veggies. My kids LOVE these, they can be pre-made and pop in the fridge until you want to want to bake them. I like to use either a beef or pork sausage, casing removed. A good butcher can help you, if you have a good "English" style butcher you are in luck!
