Back in August we were introduced to Jungle Dogs whilst at Knowsley Safari Park. We were given some to take home and challenged to come up with a fantastic recipe. With some inspiration from my mum we used the high meat content hot dogs, some tomato ketchup and some puff pastry sheets to make some gorgeous sausage rolls that were hubby hot or cold.
Take one sheet of Puff pastry, spread with tomato ketchup and sprinkle with grated cheese.
Cut in half and then each half into six.
Wrap each strip around a sausage on the diagonal so that the whole sausage is wrapped in pastry.
Repeat until all the pastry and sausages have been used.
Place on a baking tray on some greaseproof paper.
Sprinkle on some more cheese.
Put in the oven at about 200 for 15 minutes (could take longer) but keep checking them as once puffed they won’t take long to cook.
When lovely and brown remove from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool.
The heat did cause some of the sausages to split but that didnt have a negative effect on the taste.
We also did a batch with BBQ sauce which went down well and personally if I was making them for myself I would use a spicy sauce to give them a little kick.
These were fantastic picnic food and would make a great lunchbox filler too.
I wouldn’t try this with any other hotdogs due to the meat content but it seems to have worked well with Jungle Dogs.
