Method

Sausage rolls

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C. Line a biscuit tray with baking paper.
  2. Place butter and flour into a bowl. Rub the mixture between your index finger and thumb until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Add the salt and half the iced water. Mix to combine. Add a little bit of water at a time until the pastry forms a ball.
  4. Knead the dough on the bench a few times until it looks smooth. Roll to 1cm flat, wrap in plastic and place into the fridge.
  5. Grate the carrot using the finest side of the grater. Grate the zucchini onto a strainer, push out all of the excess liquid. Dry on a paper towel.
  6. Place zucchini and carrot into a bowl.
  7. Whisk the egg.
  8. Finely dice shallots, parsley and bacon.
  9. Add all ingredients into a large bowl and mix to combine
  10. Remove pastry from the fridge. Lightly flour a rolling pin and roll pastry to 0.5 cm thick with a rolling pin, trim edges to be a rectangle. Cut rectangle into 6x6 cm squares.
  11. Divide the filling evenly onto each piece of pastry. Place filling on one edge and roll.
  12. Place onto baking tray, brush with milk and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

Tomato sauce

  1. Remove stem from the tomato and mark an X in the bottom of the tomato with a sharp knife. Fill a large bowl with boiling water. Place the tomatoes in the bowl. Place a round cake tin with a little water on top to keep tomatoes in the bowl. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the tomatoes and rub skin off.
  3. Finely chop onion.
  4. Place olive oil into a small non stick saucepan and place onto a low heat. Slowly sweat and caramelize the onions, this may take up to 20 minutes.
  5. Whilst onions are cooking, finely dice the tomatoes.
  6. Once the onions are cooked, place all remaining ingredients into the skillet and bring to the simmer. Allow to simmer for 20-25 minutes, the mixture should be nice and thick.
  7. Using a stick blender, blend until smooth. Strain mixture using a sieve and set aside to cool.

Notes

Kids in the kitchen can:

  • Rub the flour and the butter together
