  • 6 chorizo sausages
  • 1 small apple
  • A knob of butter
  • Parsley
  • 375g pack of puff pastry
  • 3 tbsp of apple sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp of poppy seeds


Step 1-Add the apple and the knob of butter to a pan and cook for no more than 5 minutes until the apple has become visibly softer.

Step 2-Take the skins off of the chorizo sausages and place the chorizo sausage meat in a mixing bowl. Once the apple has cooled, add this in along with the parsley and bind it all together.

Step 3-Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celcius/180 degrees for a fan oven/ Gas mark 6 and roll out the pack of pastry in to a rectangle shape. Cut it in half to leave yourself with two long thing rectangular shapes.

Step 4-Divide the 3 tbsp of apple to between the two pieces of pastry by spooning it on the centre of each piece. As well as this, divide the chorizo sausage meat in to two long sausages and place one on top of the apple sauce on each piece of pastry. Brush the edges of the pastry with the beaten egg and bring the pastry together on one side to keep the filling inside. Seal by pressing the pastry down on the other side.

Step 5-Cut in to smaller pieces, each sausage roll should be about 7cm long. Spread the sausage rolls on two baking and brush with more of the beaten egg. Garnish with the poppy seeds and cut groves in to the top of each sausage roll.

Step 6-Put them in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Swap the trays over half way through cooking to ensure the cooking process is even.

Step 7-That’s it, these delicious chorizo and apple sausage rolls are ready to serve for your dad on Father’s Day, and we bet he will love them!
