‘Tis the season for a HFG makeover

As part of our mission to Fight the Fads: Make Every Meal Healthier, we regularly feature healthy recipe makeovers in Healthy Food Guide and on our Facebook page. And with the party season drawing ever closer, we thought we’d share a recipe with you so you can indulge in a festive treat or two without overdoing it. Our healthier sausage rolls are made with reduced-fat puff pastry and lean pork mince bulked-up with fibre-boosting wholemeal breadcrumbs – and they taste delicious…

Prep 15 min
Cook 20 min
Makes 20

Cooking oil spray, to grease
300g lean pork mince
2 wholemeal bread slices, made into breadcrumbs
1 onion, finely chopped
1tbsp chopped fresh thyme
½tsp ground mixed spice
1tbsp reduced-salt soy sauce
1 ready-rolled light puff pastry sheet (320g)
1 egg, beaten

1 Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Lightly spray a non-stick baking tray with oil.
2 In a large bowl, combine the mince, breadcrumbs, onion, thyme, mixed spice and soy.
3 Cut the pastry sheet in half lengthways into 2 long rectangles. Divide the meat mixture in half, then put one half along the middle of one pastry strip to form a long sausage. Brush one long edge of the pastry with the egg, then roll the pastry over the filling and seal it together to form a long roll. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.
4 Cut each large roll into 10 pieces, then put them seam-side down on the prepared tray. Slash the top of each roll a few times with a knife, then brush lightly with the beaten egg. Bake for 20–25 min until dark golden.
5 Serve warm or set aside to cool, then freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost thoroughly and reheat in a moderate oven until piping hot.
