Balcony Garden: Harvest Monday #14

You'd be hard pressed to find a Sydney-sider who doesn't love Bourke Street Bakery - or more specifically a Bourke Street Bakery sausage roll.  Their most famous sausage roll is probably the Pork + Fennel...which funnily enough is the only one I've not tried!  Lucky for me everything can be found on the Internet after a quick tete-a-tete with Mr Google I come up with the recipe for Pork + Fennel Sausage rolls.

I'm mostly keen to make these little babies as one of the ingridents is Thyme, of which I have a TONNE growing out on the balcony but really no idea what to do with it.  I figure I may as well chuck some rosemary in for good measure -- seeing as I finally got the darn stuff to grow!

The receipe seems straight forward enough, but it is a little time consuming with loads of chopping, cooking, stirring etc etc etc. I got to use my teacup sized food processor to whiz the rosemary + thyme = fun.   I also refrigerated the mince for awhile to make it easier to handle later on (aka; a good time to go off shopping for an hour or so).

Despite what I perceive as A LOT of effort and faffing around the end result is totally worth it if you have a lazy morning to mess around in the kitchen. These babies were so moist and flavoursome.  Now I need to go off to Bourke Street Bakery and try the real deal.

  1. I make these too, a Sammy and Bella recipe - Super delicious :)

  2. LOVE home made sausage rolls. Don't get me wrong, I love anything that comes out of the oven at bourke street bakery but the best thing I find is you know EXACTLY what goes in it.

  3. Whoa - look at that thyme! It's going crazy! Perhaps you could pick and dry bunches of it, for later use (not the same, but look at it! Wow)

  4. I'll bet these were beautifully fragrant while they were cooking. They've made me quite hungry!

  5. Yum, you are becoming such a gourmet cook Miss Piggy! I love a good sausage roll & you know I am also a huge BSB fan...happy days :)

  6. ooh they look nice! i just made some beef, cheese and onion ones the other day. you seriously hv to go try them bourke street bakery ones out, the best sausage rolls ever!

  7. These look great! I also have to ask - how did you get your thyme to grow so well?! It looks amazing! Mine is slowly but surely growing but nothing like yours in the picture :-). I'm a huge fan of the lamb and harissa sausage rolls at BSB too, are you? Wonder if they'd be easy to make at home!?

  8. Oh I love a good sausage roll !! yours look delish and I bet taste better than the bakers. Now this mini food processor has me interested....what brand is it ? would be great to make small batch of pesto.
