Cheeky sausage roll wraps with pork and fennel

  • Meal Type


These are so quick to make – and they’re also healthy. You can keep in the freezer, then semi-thaw and cut for easy after-school hunger busters or weekend sports events.

Makes 20

  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 400g sausage meat
  • 500g pork mince
  • 5 Farrahs fire roasted pepper wraps
  • 1 egg, plus 1 tbsp milk mixed to make egg wash
  • All-purpose seasoning

1 Preheat oven to 180oC. In a large bowl, combine onion, garlic, fennel seeds, celery salt, sausage meat and pork mince, and mix well with hands.

2 Cut a 2cm strip off two sides of each wrap to make a rectangle, then divide meat between wraps and make a long sausage shape along one of the straight sides. Brush egg wash over the wrap and roll tightly – this will help seal the wrap.

3 Place on a tray with the join underneath and freeze for 10 minutes to firm up. Brush the outside of each wrap with the egg wash and cut each roll into 4-5 sausage rolls, season and arrange on a lined baking tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.

About Jo Wilcox

"I have had a love of food my whole life. Lucky for me my mum allowed me to play in the kitchen from the very beginning – from sitting up on the bench watch her peeling peaches for preserving or planning dinner parties from her many Womans Weekly Cookbooks. Starting in my local beach café, I went onto professional cookery training and my big foodie OE working as a professional chef and nanny. At 21 I launched my first restaurant. The following years saw me owning a gourmet cake and dessert shop and then a pasta deli before I discovered the world of food styling. Today I work in food styling making food look beautiful and tasty in packaging and advertising shoots, as well as my most important role yet – Food Editor of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. I aim to provide great meal solutions that are interesting and approachable, and of course gorgeous foodie photos that make you want to cook them! I love the feedback and the knowledge that people actually cook them and have great results. If I can give someone a love of cooking and enjoying family meal times and gatherings then my job is done!" See
