Day 55 of Challenge: Sausage and beans puffs

This is a really easy weekend snack or supper and the kids really dig it too.

You need a sheet of puff pastry, sausage meat, beans, grated cheese and an egg to stick the pastry.

And this is what you do:

Lay out the pastry and roll it so it is a little wider, slice widthways down the centre and squidge the sausage meat in a neatish roll down the bottom third of each piece.

Add a few spoons of baked beans and grated cheese to this and paint a stripe of eggwash along the bottom edge (the smallest one). Roll up and make sure your seam is on the bottom, if it's not just turn over and push down until it is. 

Cut into 3 inch pieces and place on a baking tray. Snip the tops with scissors and paint with egg wash and scatter grated cheese.

Bake in a medium oven for about 30 minutes.

You can also freeze these before baking. Or they are very nice eaten the next day. They are a really good way of using up leftovers and it is a recipe most people can't resist either as a snack or as part of a main meal.

:) It's a gloriously sunny day here in Northants. Hope you all have a nice weekend, no vintage fairs planned for me this weekend, I am saving for pennies for next week, although I may go on a charity shop trundle this afternoon.
