Spiced Lamb Sausage Rolls with Harissa, Currents and Pinenuts

Golden, spiced, substantial homemade sausage roles made with lamb, toasted pine nuts, currents, and harissa. Served hot with lashings of tomato sauce or a spicy chilli chutney and mixed leafy salad greens, and you’ve got a nice little meal on your hands.

Preheat oven to 180C

2-3 sheets of good quality store-bought puff pastry

500g lamb, minced

40g pine nuts, lightly roasted

30g currents

50g millet – couscous could be substituted or alternatively substitute with two slices of bread, processed to fine breadcrumbs along with one beaten egg

2 tsp salt

Black pepper, freshly ground

4 tbsp good quality tomato paste – organic if possible

2 tbsp harissa paste

Egg wash, for brushing

Poppy seeds

In a large bowl mix together the lamb mince, pine nuts, currents, millet – couscous or bread, harissa, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Mix using your hands for 3-5 minutes until well combined.

Lay out the sheets of pastry – if frozen, take out of the freezer and let thaw in the fridge while you prepare the filling. Divide the sausage filling between the sheets of pastry. Fold the pastry over the filling and press down to create a seal. Remove any extra pastry. Brush rolls with egg wash and sprinkle with poppy seeds.

Pop on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes approx 8-10 rolls

  1. I am having some trouble understanding the millet portion of your recipe. I’d like to use couscous instead. Do I cook the couscous first? Is the amount of couscous the same whether it is cooked or uncooked? As to the egg – is it only used if you use bread and processes it to breadcrumbs and then add the egg to it or do you use it with the millet or the couscous too?

    I look forward to your reply. Thank you for a tasty sounding dish.
