Sausage & Pickle Plait

I had some sausage meat leftover from Christmas, so used it to make this tasty plait. It did get a soggy bottom though, I obviously don't have Mary Berry's touch! It was still very tasty though, and went down well with the whole family. You could use any pickle/chutney or relish to this, I think a tomato relish would be lovely! Even branston pickle would be great. I used a caramelised onion pickle in this version.

1 sheet ready rolled puff pastry
375g sausage meat
2 tablespoons relish/pickle or chutney
Beaten egg

Preheat the oven to 220c. Roll out your sheet of pastry. Spoon on the sausage meat up the middle, and flatten slightly. Make sure to leave around 4cm on each side. Spoon the pickle into the middle of the sausage meat. Cut the empty sides into strips about 1 cm apart. Fold these over each other, taking one from each side in turn, until you have covered the top of the plait. Wash with the beaten egg & pop into the oven for 35 minutes, until golden & crisp.


  1. Made this today and it was absolutely lovely - I used a home-made chutney (Delia's Old Doverhouse) and it worked well. A lovely lunch, thanks, Jen
