Ingredients

175g crustless day-old wholemeal bread, torn into pieces
10ml Mr Hugh’s rapeseed oil
2 leeks, thinly sliced
6 sage leaves, finely chopped
2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
3 free-range eggs, 1 beaten for egg wash
120g parmesan, grated
100g manchego cheese, grated
500g pack all-butter puff pastry
1 tsp plain flour, for dusting
50g frozen cranberries
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Method:
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line two baking trays with baking paper.

Whizz the bread in a food processor until you have fine breadcrumbs. Transfer to a mixing bowl.

Heat the Mr Hugh’s in a frying pan and add the leeks. Gently fry for 4–5 minutes, then add half the sage and thyme and fry for a further 2 minutes, or until softened but not coloured. Add the leeks to the breadcrumbs and season with salt and pepper.

In a separate bowl, whisk together three eggs, add the cheeses and remaining sage and thyme, season with salt and pepper. Tip into the breadcrumb mixture and mix well. Using your hands, form the mixture into two even-sized balls. Roll these balls between your palms into two 30cm long sausages.

Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface until you have a 30x30cm square. Cut the square in half lengthways to form two rectangles. Lay one of the sausages down each rectangle. Sprinkle over the cranberries. Take the first rectangle and fold one side up over the filling. Brush beaten egg down the other edge and fold it over the top and press lightly to seal the join. Repeat with the second rectangle of pastry.

Turn the two long sausage rolls seam-side-down. Using a sharp knife, cut each length of pastry into eight even-sized sausage rolls. Make two small slits in the top of each one, taking care not to cut right through. Brush all the sausage rolls with beaten egg, then place on the prepared trays.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.
