  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment. Heat 1 tsp of the oil in a small non-stick saucepan and gently fry the onion and apple for 6-8 mins, stirring regularly, until softened and lightly browned. Leave to cool for 5 mins.

  2. Place 1 sheet of pastry on your work surface, with the short end closest to you, and brush lightly with oil. Place another sheet on top, but off-set roughly 6cm to the right, and brush with a little more oil. Top with the final sheet, off-set another 6cm to the right. The pastry rectangle should be roughly 40 x 45cm.

  3. Squeeze the sausagemeat from the skins into a large bowl. Add the onion, apple and sage, and mix well. Form the pork mixture into a large sausage shape and place across the pastry, about 8cm in from one short end and 8cm from each side.

  4. Fold up the bottom of the pastry until it begins to cover the filling, then fold in the sides. Roll the pastry from the bottom, gently but firmly, to enclose the filling. Place on the baking tray and brush with the remaining oil. Bake for 30 mins or until the filling is cooked and the pastry is golden brown and crisp. Serve with mixed salad leaves.

Quick and easy and very tasty. I added a punnet of mushrooms and some garlic and served with piccalilli. Some oil did come off the sausage meat but not enough to make the pastry soggy.

The filling was good and tasty but a lot of liquid came out while it was cooking, I mopped it up with kitchen roll, but it meant the bottom of the pastry was soggy. Maybe I will do it again with puff pastry instead.
