Tucker Tuesdays: Recipe ~ Chicken and veg Sausage Rolls

We love sausage rolls! But sausage mince isn't very healthy. We've made them with beef mince and they are great too. I make Pizza Sausage Rolls every so often too. But I thought I'd make some with chicken mince for something different.
When we did our bulk meat shop the other week I scored 4 x 500g packs of Lillydale organic chicken mince for $2 a pack! So that's what I used

Chicken and Veg Sausage Rolls
1kg chicken mince
1C cottage cheese
1 onions, finely diced
2 carrots, grated
2 eggs
4 sheets puff pastry
a little milk
Sesame or other seeds for decoration if desired

Preheat oven to 220C.
Combine the first 5 ingredients with your hands in a large bowl until well combined.
Cut sheets of pastry in half lengthwise.
Spoon mince mixture along the long edge of each piece of pastry and roll up. Brushing the joining edge with a little milk to stick together.
Cut each roll into four piece.
Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Brush each roll with more milk and sprinkle with seeds if using.
Baking in the oven for about 20 mins or so, or until lightly golden brown.

Serve with your choice of sauce. I had sour cream and sweet chilli with mine mmm.

Don't over cook though. Chicken mince is very lean and if they are over cooked they'll be very dry.
You could easily add other vegies into these and bulk it out more to use up all 6 sheets of pastry in the pack. I made some apricot turnovers with my leftover sheets and had with some leftover whipped cream for dessert.

Hope you give these a go.
