Greek Lamb Sausage Rolls
Family Friendly Sausage Rolls with a Healthy Twist
There aren’t many of us who don’t enjoy scoffing a sausage roll every now and then – but the ingredients list on the frozen ones at the supermarket can sometimes be a little scary. Not ideal for a family meal – which is why this recipe is full of healthy ingredients like capsicum, spinach, and New Zealand lamb mince. Simple to make at home and you know exactly what’s going in them – just add veges or a side salad and you’ve got a meal.
