Makes 18


  • 500g pork mince
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, grated
  • 1/2 cup grated vintage cheddar
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 sheets frozen puff pastry, partially thawed
  • 4 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Place mince, apple, cheddar, onion, garlic, parsley, thyme and half the egg in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.
  2. Place one sheet of pastry on a flat surface. Cut in half to form two large rectangles. Leaving a 1cm edge, spoon 1/3 cup mince mixture along one long side of each piece of pastry. Brush edges with a little of the remaining egg. Roll up pastry to enclose filling. Trim ends. Cut each roll into 3 pieces. Place rolls, seam-side down, on a baking paper-lined tray. Repeat with pastry, mince and egg.
  3. Brush tops of rolls with egg. Score lines into the tops of rolls with a small knife. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat air fryer to 200C. Cook sausage rolls, in batches, for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and puffed. Serve.
