A couple of weeks ago, this video came up in my Facebook feed > Cheeseburger Spring Rolls. A fantastic idea, but it was something that I wanted to make immediately and I didn’t fancy having to go shopping just for Spring Roll pastry. Knowing that I still had puff pastry in the freezer, the idea was tweaked slightly to form this creation… Cheeseburger Sausage Rolls!
Ingredients remained the pretty much the same…
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 400-500g beef mince
- 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce
- 1 cup grated tasty cheese – I didn’t have any Colby cheese to add
- 2 large dill pickles
- 1 sheet of puff pastry
Since I would need to form the mix into sausages, I didn’t cook the ingredients and simply mixed everything into a bowl (minus the pickles). The pickles were cut at length and quartered, then placed into the meat mix. The sausages were then formed around the pickles. 4 were made using the amount in this mix. The puff pastry was then separated into 4 and each sausage was rolled into a piece. The sausage rolls were then placed in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 220ºC.
Once they came out of the oven, each roll was wrapped in sandwich paper and placed in a paper bag… ready for dinner. I also brought a small bottle of tomato sauce… needed if it’s to have that “cheeseburger” flavour. Those that got a chance to try it thought it worked out… apart from my son who had very little interest in it. I thought it tasted a bit rich… maybe that would even out if I added that extra cup of Colby. Perhaps this idea will be revisited in the future.
