Cheese & Marmite Sausage Rolls

Who doesn't love a sausage roll? Here, they're taken to the next level with cheese and Marmite! The salty, rich taste of Marmite enhances the flavour of the pork and works perfectly with the tang of Cheddar.

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 500g pork sausagemeat
  • 2 tbsps Marmite
  • 100g mature Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Flour, for dusting
  • 375g block all-butter puff pastry
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to season

Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, add the onion and garlic, and fry until softened and starting to brown. Tip them into a large bowl.

Add the sausagemeat to the bowl with 1 tablespoon of the Marmite and season with black pepper. Marmite is very salty, so you shouldn’t need to add any extra salt. Mash everything together using a fork or squeeze together using your hands, then stir in the cheese.

Lightly dust a worktop with flour and roll out the pastry into a large rectangle, about 35 x 20cm, then slice it in half lengthways to create 2 long rectangles. Spread the remaining Marmite on one half of each piece of pastry lengthways, leaving a 1cm gap at the edges.

Divide the sausagemeat mixture in half and roll each half on a floured worktop to make two long sausage shapes. Make sure they are of an even thickness so the sausage rolls are the same size.

Place one of the sausagemeat rolls on a pastry strip, making sure it is directly on the top of the Marmite. Brush the exposed pastry with a little beaten egg, then fold the top half over the sausage and use a fork to crimp the edge closed. Repeat with the second pastry strip and sausage filling, then cut each sausage roll into 5 smaller pieces about 7cm in length.

Place the sausage rolls on the lined baking sheet, then brush the tops of the rolls with the remaining beaten egg. Make several diagonal cuts on the top of the pastry, then sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake for 30–35 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Some of the cheese and Marmite might have oozed out, but this adds to their rustic charm. Remove from the oven and eat warm, or leave to cool completely and enjoy as an on-the-go snack.
