  1. Boil eggs for 2½ mins, then cool slightly before peeling and trimming each end.

  2. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. In a bowl, mix together the sausagemeat grated onion, apple, parsley, Tabasco, ham and breadcrumbs. Roll the pastry out to a rectangle about 25 x 35cm, carefully lift onto a baking sheet and brush all over with beaten egg.

  3. Press two-thirds of the sausage mix along one of the long sides of the pastry, leaving 2cm pastry free on one side for sealing, and half of the pastry empty on the other side for folding over later. Press a line down the middle of the meat with your finger, then lay the eggs along it, trimmed end to trimmed end. Press over the rest of the sausagemeat. Fold the pastry over the sausage and press the edges together, before trimming with a knife and sealing well by pressing the edges with a fork.

  4. Brush all over with more egg and bake for 40 mins until golden. Leave to cool, then slice and serve with mustard. Can be made 1 day ahead.

Absolutely delicious - works well with hens eggs and freezes well. We make it one weekend and save it in portions to eat on weekdays with salad in the summer or greens in the winter.

I made this as part of a buffet lunch for eight people. There was lots of other food so I thought there would be some leftover but it all disappeared. It is very tasty and it is convenient to be able to make it the day before. I was only able to buy 12 quails eggs as the shop was sold out but I found these enough. Apart from this I followed the recipe exactly including measuring the dimensions of the pastry and found that there was insufficient pastry to cover the filling. I was able to get round this by gently rolling the filled slice with a rolling pin but next time I would start with a wider piece of pastry. I think it would work equally as well with hen's eggs.

I love to make this recipe, and it goes down really well every time I do. I've recently amended it to make a festive version using turkey mince, sage and cranberries and it tastes great too.

Can this be frozen before cooking and if so would you defrost before cooking or cook from frozen?

Hi there, thanks for your question. You can cook this from frozen, just allow a little extra cooking time and cover with foil if it's getting too dark in the oven.

This is a lovely recipe but I'm not sure how it can be 0g of saturated fat with puff pastry and sausages in it!

Hi Sue, thanks for flagging this - one slice of the sausage roll actually carries 16g of saturated fat. Sorry that this was omitted from the recipe, it has now been added. Thanks again!

If I bake this slice on day one to use the following day, can it be reheated so that we can eat it hot or can I make it and leave it in the fridge overnight uncooked, to cook the following day.
