For as long as I've known Dave, he's raved about the sausage rolls his grandmother use to make. Every time I'd buy a box of store-bought frozen ones, he'd go on and on about how his grandma use to make her own puff pastry from scratch.
I had my doubts about this... I grew up with people who loved to make baked goods... not one of them made puff pastry, because it was just too time consuming. I tried to tell Dave this, but he insisted that she did.
Then one day, I'd whipped up some Pillsbury flaky rolls. And sure enough, Dave declared it tasted just like his grandmother's puff pastry. My suspicions almost confirmed, I decided to grow straight to the source.
The secret was out... Grandma's puff pastry wasn't by Pillsbury, but it was from the freezer aisle. I grabbed a box last grocery day. And Dave had had a rough week this week, so it was the perfect time to make him a treat
I used this recipe.
It's basically just a meatball mix wrapped in pastry - perfect for entertaining. Dave ate several when he walked in the door. The rest have gone to Grandma's for her approval.
I had a fair bit of meat mixture left after all the pastry was used up...
