Quarantine day … okay, I lost count. But it feels like we’ve been doing everything from home since forever and I kinda like it. We got a chance to clean up the house, re-decorate some corners, and nesting, while also trying to get my hands busy in the kitchen. And this time, Dutch Sausage Rolls.
Dutch Sausage Rolls or Saucijzenbroodjes is spiced meat rolled in puff pastry. You can enjoy it as a delicious appetizer or snack, basically any time of the day.
A few years ago, we went to Amsterdam and took a day trip to Zaanse Shans. While waiting for our bus to arrive, I couldn’t pass but getting one last piece of a sausage roll in a nearby bakery. And that was the best decision, tho we almost missed our bus.
What is Dutch Sausage Rolls?
Despite the name, this sausage roll does not contain sausage at all. So, what makes them so good? Real meat.
In this case, I trust Laura’s Lean.
According to USDA rules, beef can be considered and labeled “natural” as long as it contains no artificial ingredients and is minimally processed. This definition includes most grocery store-bought fresh beef. However, Laura’s Lean product is unlike most other “natural beef.” It’s a “Never Ever” offering, which means that it is sourced from suppliers who do not use added hormones or antibiotics to raise their cattle.
All of Laura’s Lean products have to meet the strict USDA standards to qualify as being lean. Every 4oz serving must contain less than 10g fat, 4.5g or less of saturated fats, and less than 95mg of cholesterol. Additionally, Laura’s Lean 96% Ground Beef meets the standards set by the American Heart Association’s heart-check program and is classified as Extra Lean by the USDA standards.
When you choose Laura’s Lean products, you get the best of both worlds of taste and nutrition for your family to enjoy.
How to make sausage rolls?
Super easy. Think about mini wellington. Basically, you add ground pork (or fried bacon), onion, and some spices to the mixture. Then spoon onto puff pastry sheet, roll, bake, and let the oven does the work!
Can I freeze sausage rolls?
Absolutely! Once you’ve rolled and sliced the uncooked rolls, add them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze them. When ready to eat, you can bake the sausage roll straight from the freezer. Brush the top with the egg wash right before they go into the oven. Then, add a few more minutes to the baking time or until the meat is fully cooked through.
