You can’t beat a good sausage roll at Christmas and ones which are homemade really steal the show. This recipe makes sausage rolls which are full of flavour thanks to lots of fresh herbs, wholegrain mustard and a touch of sweetness from honey and cranberries. They can be prepared in advance and only cooked off when you need them.

Mix the honey and Dijon mustard together and put aside. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
Mix the sausage meat, herbs, breadcrumbs, wholegrain mustard, cranberries, bacon and the salt and pepper in a bowl. Divide the mixture in two. Wrap the meat mixture in clingfilm and roll it out to the length of the pastry. Place the roll in the fridge and leave it for about 30 minutes to firm up. Repeat with the second batch of meat.
Roll out the pastry and cut it in half lengthways. Brush the pastry sheets with the honey and mustard mix. Take the meat out of the fridge, remove the clingfilm and place the sausage meat in the middle of the pastry sheets, roll the pastry and brush the edge with water to seal. Brush the top of the sausage rolls with the beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Cut the rolls into thumb size pieces, place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and cook for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
