Creative Sausage Plait

This delicious pie can be served hot, warm or even cold. In England it is typically served with baked beans (cooked white beans in a sweet tomato sauce) or a simple green salad. This is known as sausage plait because the pastry is plaited (braided) over the filling to make an attractive presentation. This dish can be compared to a grownup version of the humble sausage roll, but it is no harder to make; in fact the preparation is very similar. There are some hidden vegetables sneaked into this recipe, making it ideal for picky youngsters in your house. Mince the red bell peppers finely and the little ones will not know they are there.

Whether you are enjoying sausage plait for lunch or dinner, or taking a slice or two to work or a picnic, you are sure to love the different flavours and textures it offers. You can tweak the recipe however you wish, adding any herbs you happen to have or swapping the red bell pepper for another vegetables which needs to be used up. Leave out the chilli if you prefer a mild finish or add extra for added spice.

Try pork and leek sausages with sage and black pepper if you cannot get the pork and apple kind, or if you prefer something more savoury. You will need about 14 oz (400g) of sausages which is about 6 large ones. You will be using the meat and discarding the sausage casings. Why not get the kids to help make this? They can help squeeze the meat out of the sausages and even help plait the pastry over the filling. Continue reading
