Quick and Easy Sausage Rolls

My family have been asking and asking "Mam when will you make some Homemade Sausage Rolls" followed by "you haven't made them for ages".  Guilting me obviously works as the next minute I was in the kitchen baking my heart out.
 
Sometimes I can be quite adventurous with fillings and flavours and Noel makes a pretty mean sausage roll also.  He even did a sort of Guest Blog for me with Noel's Homemade Sausage Rolls (well he cooked and I typed).
 
Not being as prepared as usual I went for an old trusted recipe, one that I have been making for as long as I can remember and a very easy recipe at that.  Like with all my good recipes they are jam packed with hidden vegetables and filled with flavour.
 
These pork and beef sausages rolls are perfect - quick, easy and have minimal ingredients.  The flavouring is infact just one jar of Rosella Fruit Chutney mixed with the meat, onions, carrots and zucchini - voila! Bake and your done.
 
These sausage rolls get eaten straight off the cooling rack while they are still warm at our house but they can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge or even frozen.
