It was party time over the weekend and Miss 9 was excited to celebrate with family and a small group of friends. So Mat and I decided to put some thought into our food options for guests. We thought this would be a great opportunity to provide them with something that would look familiar and amaze them when we revealed that it actually wasn't pastry they were chewing up! Feeling very confident in our choices we put on offer. It was our chance to normalise LCHF eating at a kids birthday party.
LCHF Sausage rolls a huge hit!
This made enough to successfully feed 14 guests (7 adults/ 7 kids) there was other party food on offer so guests only needed 2-3 rolls each to keep them satisfied.
Preparation time 15 minutes
Things needed; Mixing bowl, baking paper, oven trays x 2, cutting knife, chopping board
Ingredients for the Sausage
500g Pork mince
700g Beef mince
1 large onion finely diced
Salt and pepper
*** you could add in other flavours but because kids were being offered these we kept the flavouring mild***
Pre-cook the sausages
1. Mix sausage ingredients together with clean hands in a mixing bowl until all combined well
2. Take a handful of sausage mixture at a time and place on baking paper on your oven tray making a thick sausage shape. Keep doing this until all mixture is used. 20 cm long by 6 cm wide.
3. Place in a pre-heated oven of 180C/350F for 10-12 minutes - start prepping your 'roll' mixture whilst this is in the oven
4. Remove from oven
Ingredients for the roll
1. 510 g Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
2. 255 g almond meal (finely ground)
3. 6 tbsp full fat cream cheese - we used Philadelphia cream cheese
4. 3 eggs
5. 2-3 pinches of salt
6. 3 tsp of onion flakes
*** may need to make in two batches if this is too much in one bowl***
1. Place the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl then add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 -2 minutes
2. Remove then stir well, microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds. Remove and stir again. Add the egg, salt, and onion flakes. Mix well until mixture is consistent.
3. Place the Fat Head pastry between 2 pieces of baking paper and roll into a thin, rectangle on the over tray. Remove the top layer of baking paper.
4. Cut the Fat Head pastry along one side and place the sausages along that edge. Begin to roll up your long sausage.
5. Cut your long sausage into smaller sizes about 6cm by 4cm...drizzle some olive oil over the top.
6. Bake at 220C/425F for 15 minutes, or until golden all over.
