Cranberry, Cheese & Sausage Parcel

One time I was cooking a roast dinner & hadn't thought about what I'd serve with the veg. With the ingredients I had in the fridge I created this really simple & quick recipe. My guests loved it & thought I'd spent ages making it. This is great for when you don't have a lot of time but want something impressive to serve.
Course: Appetizer, Main Course, Side Dish
Keyword: sausage parcel, vegan christmas
Servings: 2 people

Ingredients

  • 2 squares vegan puff pastry Buy the one made with oil not butter
  • 2 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 2 sausages I used Linda McCartney
  • 2 cubes cheese

Instructions

  • Let the pastry sit at room temperature for 20 minutes so it's easier to mold.
    Cut out two (or more, depending on servings) squares of pastry (approx 14-15cm square). Put 1 tbsp of cranberry sauce in the centre. Roll a sausage into a ball & place on top of the cranberry. Cut a small piece of cheese and place on top of the sausage.
    Like a parcel bring the corners together (see video) and pinch to seal. It should end up looking a bit like a pyramid. Pop on a greased baking tray. Brush with plant milk and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
    I like to serve with gravy but they're great on their own. Enjoy!

Notes

TIP: Let the sausages defrost or cook for 1 minute in the microwave. Make sure the edges of the pastry are pinched and sealed together or you'll find the sauce leaks out.
