Pork,sage and Onion Swirls

Having watched a Hairy Bikers making some mince beef swirls my hubby asked if perhaps we could try making our variation using pork or perhaps chicken. Well I make cheese and fruit swirls using puff pastry so why not I thought I guess you could make all sorts of varieties. 

This time I went for pork, sage and onion, might try some for Christmas using minced turkey, cranberries and chestnut stuffing. If you want to try the pork varieties here is  the recipe. It is so easy.


300g Minced Pork
1 pkt Puff pastry
1 pkt Sage and Onion Stuffing


Pre heat oven to 190 C 

Roll out pastry in a rectangle until its about 2 mm thick. Don't roll too thin or pastry splits when rolling and too thick and the rolls will be stodgy.

Mix Stuffing with hot water following instructions on packet then mix with 
the minced pork.

Season with salt and pepper.

Spread meat stuffing mixture over pastry leaving an edge of about 1 cm uncovered along the shortest edge.

Now roll the pastry/meat pastry sheet from the shortest end. keep roll fairly tight. 

 You will end up with a roll as shown above

Once you have created the roll then divide it into slices about 2 to 2.5 cm.

Bake for about 20-30 minutes.

A serving suggestion
 These are great eaten fresh from the oven but also make great picnic food.
