950g beef mince (lean)
375g jar tomato paste
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
¾ cup dry breadcrumbs
6 sheets puff pastry (you can use store-bought or home made)
milk, to brush
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Place the mince, tomato paste, dried herbs, chopped garlic, egg and breadcrumbs in a large bowl and combine with your hands.
Get a large plate and brush the plate with milk.
Put 1 sheet of pastry on the plate, scoop in some mixture, and shape into a sausage down the centre.
Roll the pastry over to cover the sausage.
Cut each roll into thirds and repeat this step.
Put the rolls onto a greased baking tray and cook for 20 minutes or until the pastry goldens up nicely.

note: these are so moist you probably won’t need to serve them with sauce
