It’s Friday night. Once, in the dark and almost forgotten past, we always used to have a take away on a Friday night. Now, we just cook every meal at home and such wastefulness is a thing of the very distant past. I defrosted some puff pastry from the bottom of the freezer. Oh, by the way, if you have time to make your own puff pastry, you have a lovely life and you don’t have enough work to do. I, on the other hand have been at work all day and buy it on offer or when it’s about to ‘go out of date’. I rolled out the pastry and set it to one side. I then squidged the centre out of three sausages and rolled it into one long sausage. I chopped and fried some lardons, a few crinkly mushrooms, an onion and, once soft, laid that along the bottom of the savoury plait, smeared some home made damson chutney on top and then balanced the sausage meat on top.
I cut and ‘plaited’ the pastry and baked in a hot oven. We ate it with some runner beans and peas…………it was just divine!
Here’s the melt in your mouth, gooey, and yet crunchy and all found lurking in the back of the freezer or fridge savoury sausage plait. There’s plenty left for lunches next week.
I’m off to sit with both the doggies, who will be trying to get inside my jumper as all the fireworks go off tonight.
All my love, Froogs xxxx
