  1. Put the butter and apple in a small pan and cook for 5 mins until the apple has softened, then cool.

  2. Remove the sausage skins and put the meat in a bowl. Add the cooled apple and the parsley, and mash everything together with a fork or your hands.

  3. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. roll out the pastry to a rectangle, roughly 32 x 20cm. Cut in half, so that you now have 2 long thin rectangles. Spoon the apple sauce down the centre of each piece of pastry. Shape the chorizo mixture into 2 long sausages and put on top of the apple sauce. Brush the edges of the pastry with a little beaten egg, then bring the pastry together on one side to enclose the filling, and seal by pressing the pastry with a fork.

  4. Cut the sausage rolls into smaller pieces, each about 7cm long, and arrange on 2 baking trays. Brush with egg, then sprinkle with poppy seeds. Cut small slashes into each roll. Bake for 25-30 mins, changing the trays over halfway through the cooking time. Delicious served warm, or cold on a picnic.

Love these! My regular go to recipe for a picnic or party. Go down very well. Just used ordinary chorizo and chopped it up really small. Noticed other people had commented about not adding apple sauce as it would be too sweet, I don't have a sweet tooth and I always add the apple sauce as I gives it a lovely flavour and it's not too sweet.

Disaster for me :( these looked so easy I got sausages and prerolled pastry but as soon as I got home it was so sticky the pastry it wouldn't get off the paper. I left it back in the fridge but upon return still sticky. Couldnt get the chorizo out of skin was too hard for that and I manage to make 3 till I gave up due to the stick pastry :( shame looks so good!

I made these at the weekend and they are delicious! the apple goes really well with the chorizo sauage, there is a nice balance of savoury and sweet. The only issue i had was that as they cooked on the tray, quite a lot of juice/oil from the chorizo sausage came out onto the tray making the bottoms a bit soggier than i would of liked. Other than that they turned out very well.

I've made them a few times now and don't change anything. The chorizo style sausages go perfectly with the apples. Everyone loves them and so quick to make.

These were amazing! I took them to a friend's party and they went down very, very well and were so easy to do. The sausage meat doesn't really roll but I squidged into shape and it all seemed to work. The apple works really well with the chorizo and is a combination I wouldn't have thought of before.

I have made these about 4 times now; family and colleagues alike love them! Several work mates have asked for the recipe and have agreed these are super easy to make and so moreish. I must admit I miss out the apple sauce (I imagine this makes them quite sweet?) but thats the only change I make and they've very yummy.

Why on earth would you go to the trouble of chopping & cooking an apple only to add a further 3 tbsp apple sauce? Surely it should be either/or?

Hello, Thank you for comment. The apple chunks add texture to the sausage mixture, hence the direction to use an eating apple which won't break down in the same way that a cooking apple will, and the apple sauce adds a touch of sweetness to the sausage roll. I hope this helps.
