Spooky Sausage Ghosties

(ghosties waiting to be baked)

They may just be sausage rolls but they're really scary ones.
Makes 24
800g good pork sausages
4 tbsp sesame seeds
500g puff pastry
small piece cheese, cut into tiny dice
1 egg, beaten

Skin the sausages then mix in the sesame seeds. Cut the pastry in half and roll out lengthways on a floured surface until about 60cm x 10cm. Shape the sausage mixture down the centre, dampen the edges then roll up to seal.

Cut each roll into 5cm lengths then snip the bottom of each one to make a ghostie outline. Make two holes at the top and push in tiny pieces of cheese for the eyes.

Place on a non-stick baking sheet and chill for an hour. Brush with beaten egg and bake at 200C/Gas 6 for 20 minutes until puffed and golden.

None for you, they're for Scrap to take to Eoin's party. Loads of Witches' Cats though!

absoutely genius - we made spots once long long ago ( red mashed potato with a big lump of cheese on the middle ) but these are loads scarier - it's how i shall be eating sausage rolls forever

All of which reminds me of the classic pantomime gag:

'That wood's full of ghosties and ghoulies. I don't mind the ghosties but I wouldn't want to be caught by the -'

Ah, Bobby Davro.
