Beef & Kale Sausage Rolls

Beef & Kale Sausage Rolls

By: Danielle Minnebo

Sausage rolls are a terrific meal for kids to get involved with and make. If you use the right kind of pastry, they can also be a nutrient-dense meal. In this recipe I’ve used a store-bought wholemeal spelt flour puff pastry. When you’re buying pastry, look for a puff pastry made with butter instead of those made with refined vegetable oils.



Prep time

Cook time



  • Mince Filling
  • ½ carrot, grated
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • ½ capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped kale
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp almond meal
  • 1 tsp seeded mustard
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 500g beef mince
  • 375g spelt butter puff pastry
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced. Grease and line a large baking tray.
  • Add the ingredients for the mince filling to a mixing bowl. Using your hands, mix everything together well, then set aside.
  • Add the egg and almond milk to a small bowl and beat together. This will be your egg wash for the pastry.
  • Roll out the sheet of puff pastry, cut in half lengthways so you end up with 2 rectangle pieces.
  • Lay 1 rectangle piece of pastry with the longest edge closest to you. Brush the egg wash along 1 long edge of the pastry. Get your mince filling and shape it into a long log and place it down the middle of the pastry. Roll up the pastry so that the mince mixture is enclosed and the pastry seam is face down. Repeat the process with your other rectangle of pastry.
  • Cut each pastry log into 4 equal pieces and place these onto your baking tray. Brush each sausage roll with the egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake in the oven for 40 mins until golden brown.
