香肠卷 Pork and fennel sausage rolls



当你为自己的梦想去努力一番后,但却不能实现时,你会是怎样的心情呢?
很失望是吧?
尤其要告诉你身边和你一起期望这梦想的家人这个梦想暂时破灭时,是不是很不忍心?也很无奈?
这或许就是我枕边人昨天的心情。
我除了继续支持他,鼓励他,我也不能做什么了。
或许时机未到吧?没有必要太在意。
当然,谁不想住大屋,驾名车?
但是,比上不足,不下有余;知足常乐这道理我们一定要记得。
反正我们现在的生活也很棒啊!
有梦想不是不好,只是能力不足时,为我,还是低调比较好。
不用为自己“添购”另一个重担来肩负,我的直觉告诉我那是好事。
不要气馁,留得青山在,哪怕没柴烧。
这是迟早问题,按步就班行事,会有那一天的。
我的老公如果想做一件事,不让他去试试,他是死不甘心的。
现在试过了,应该甘愿了吧?有时执著是要附上代价的。
虽然如此,我还是会和你一起加油的!
今年计划不成功,明年肯定没问题的;相信老婆的话是绝对不会错的。

外面下着大雨,空气冷冰冰的。
但是我的小房子却弥漫着茴香的香味。
本来想懒惰直接用茴香粉来做这香肠卷。
还好临时打住,把茴香籽先炒香,再摸成粉,那个香味真的很棒。
都说了要做Bourke Street's Bakery's 闻名的Pork & Fennel Sausage Rolls,所以不偷懒。
一次过做了1公斤的肉哦,因为原本做半公斤的,可是觉得实在太好吃了,所以继续做另外半份,可以说是丰收。
送这个给小小失意的老公,他会高兴的。
他放工回家看见整桌的香肠卷肯定吓呆了。哈哈。。。
他回家时,我还在外,他给了我短讯:The Best sausage rolls!!!! Best best best best best!!!!!
所以啊,要记得试试做哦。
这么多个Best应该信得过。

  1. Jane, 听老婆的话会发达,我时常都这样告诉我的老公!When my husband told me that he wanted to sell our current house & buying a bigger house, I told him, if you think you can afford it, do it but the home mortgage should not be more than 40% of his total income! Actually I don't mind to live in my current place,at least no need to pack & unpack mah, hai!

    Thought that you only "talk talk" only when you said that it would be perfect if you make the Pork & Sausage Rolls. You did! The sausages look very cute! You used 1kg meat, walau, I only used 300g & we got sick after having them in 2 meals in 1 day!

How many pieces have you divided from a pastry sheet? I am not sure what you are going through right now, but would like to encourage you that God's grace is always sufficient for us, May u have peace in Him!

    1. siew, not the same. croissant needs yeast to proof while puff pastry contains no yeast.

  9. Hi Jane, thanks for sharing the recipe, compliment from son and friends though the pastry was a bit soggy. Can you please advise where gone wrong? Thanks.

    1. teckbaked, may be the puff pastry is not properly baked. I like to use buttery puff pastry which i feel it can raised more compare to the normal one. Another thing is by using puff pastry u need to handle it fast so that it can have good end result. If ur oven temperature is a bit low than u can increase it by 10-20C or bake at 210C for first 10mins then changed to 190C for balance of baking time. The ready baked sausage rolls should be brown and a bit hard at the bottom n puffy on top.
      ANyway, the humidity of the weather do influenced the texture and make it soggy.
      Hope my tips did help u :)

  10. Thanks Jane, I think my oven temperature is not hot enough cos I baked four tray and the sausage is too closed to each other. I try the second time, only two sausage roll per tray, came out right this time. I also bought Bourke street bakery online at a discount price and try the puff pastry, it was nice but after baking, there are so much oil in the tray.
