Christmas leftovers

With Christmas just behind us and before the diets really kick in why not try a little family dish from the professional caterers in Edinburgh and East Lothian.

Chestnut, Apricot and cashew nut sausage rolls.

  1. Using the leftover sausage meat from your stuffing, add some chopped ready to ear dried apricots, some pre cooked chestnuts and cashew nuts (fried in a little oil until browned – releases flavour and makes them crunchy) and season with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Roll out a block of ready made puff pastry into a rectangle. Line the long edge with the sausage meat mix, egg wags the remaining pastry and roll till the stuffing is fully covered in pastry.
  3. Press gently and trim the excess pastry with a sharp knife.
  4. Leave to relax in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Medium to hot oven for 20-25 minutes or until cooked.
