Shannon Bennett’s Hen Sausage Rolls

There’s a renaissance of the sausage roll in the meanwhile, effectively, in my home anyway.

Having six children and no a la carte menu at dinner I’ve to be artistic. How do I be artistic in terms of midgets that merely see meals as a cloth to trigger consternation, nervousness, and grief to their private chef and fellow diners!? I run an in depth survey of favorite meals that Daddy can prepare dinner for them, after which discover 5 widespread recipes amongst all of the solutions (after all ignoring Nutella doughnuts and lollipops dipped in melted smarties!).

Surprisingly, the number-one results of my survey is ‘sausage rolls’. The youngsters all appear to gravitate towards this Aussie icon, and will not be tempted to throw them, present disgust or attempt to feed these to the canines or goats!

Something might be made right into a sausage roll on the Bennett Home, in the meanwhile there’s a rooster fetish. I can cover something healthful in there too: fennel, pumpkin, onion, peas… No matter you could have, throw in it and they’re going to eat it! As a aspect profit, so will the adults!
