Jammy Sausage Plaits

HT CD  PIC 35mins

Makes 6 Plaits       Keywords:    Hot Cold Pork Vegetables  Pastry Picnics


For lots of great kitchen equipment


6  Cumberland Sausages, skins removed
450/1lb Puff Pastry
6 tbsp Onion jam or similar onion or fruit chutney
1 Egg mixed with a little milk



  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 6, 200ºC, 400ºF. Cut pastry in half lengthways. Roll out to about 30cm x10cm.

  2. With the longest length of pastry closest to you, place 3 separate teaspoons full of jam or chutney straight onto the pastry, spacing out evenly, and allowing space for the ‘plaits’. Top the jam with a skinless sausage.

  3. Cut between the sausages creating 3 ‘plaits’. Now cut parallel, diagonal slits either side of the sausage in the pastry about 1cm apart.

  4. Lightly brush with water and then ‘plait’/fold the strips alternately over one another. Repeat with remaining pastry.

  5. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.  Brush the tops with the beaten egg then bake in a preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes until pastry is risen and golden.



Use your favourite sausages or about 400g/12oz of sausagemeat
