These are a great pastry snack for a vegetarian...actually a lot of meat eaters don't even realise they aren't made from sausage meat.
- Place cottage cheese, pecans, eggs, onion and soya sauce in food processor and process until fine. Transfer mixture to large bowl, add oats and breadcrumbs. Mix well.
- Cut pastry sheets in half, spoon mixture down edge of each strip or place filling in piping bag without a nozzle and pipe down one side of pastry. Brush other edge with milk. Roll to enclose filling with pastry, repeat with remaining pastry sheets.
- Cut each roll into 5 even lengths. Place on lightly greased oven tray, brush with milk and prick with fork.
- Bake in hot oven, 200°C, for 10-15 minutes or until crisp and golden.
These are AWESOME! I just made a half recipe to try them out. I was a bit skeptical about the non-meat filling but they fooled my husband! I stuck to the recipe this time but next round I am going to spice them up a bit more. Thanks!
I have just made these rolls and am very pleased with the results. They look like British sausage rolls and the flavour is pleasant if not entirely sausage tasting. I did add garlic powder, onion powder, a little salt and some cayenne pepper and intend to spice them up a little more the next time I make them. A good, easy recipe.
We make these on a regular basis but we always use walnuts instead of pecans. My brother-in-law also makes them but he adds a bit of grated cheese before rolling them up. Either way is good. Nay, GREAT! Simple and delicious. They freeze well too - we are actually having some tonight thawed first in the microwave and currently crisping up in the oven. I love them in my lunch box :)
