Softer filling in sausage rolls?

pauline999, Dec 1, 3:51am
I have just skinned 500g chicken sausages, added sage and finely chopped fried onion - is it breadcrumbs I add to make the filling softer for the sausage rolls or something else ? And do I add an egg to hold the shape together in the pastry?

I add cooked mashed potato

I usually add breadcrumbs, grated onion and grated veges (carrot, zucchini or potato) to my sausage meat. It also makes the filling go further. I don't add any egg, just my preference.

Potato flakes will soften the mix. You can also use soaked bread instead of breadcrumbs for a really soft mix.

I use breadcrumbs, grated vege (usually a little onion, carrot and maybe celery), and the grated zest of 1/2 a lemon and a few herbs. I soak the breadcrumbs in a little milk for about 1/2 an hour. Makes a nice soft filling.

Never made them, what pastry do you use. they seem so simple. may give a try tomorrow.

I usually just make a shortcrust pastry but I've used ready rolled flaky pastry on occasion if time is short.
