Ingredients

  • 3 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 2 baby eggplant, finely grated
  • 1 zucchini, finely grated

  • 500g minced lean chicken

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. -

    These sound yum and packed full of veggies.
    How would I freeze them? Before or after cooking?

    Tried these the other day. The eggplant just kind of turned to a smooshy mess when I grated it, perhaps my blunt old grater? Was also unsure as to whether or not to leave the skin on the eggplant (haven’t ever cooked with eggplants before). I should have squeezed the liquid out of the eggplant as they released quiet a bit of liquid while cooking which made the bottom of the rolls go soggy. I also left out the zucchini as didn’t have one in my fridge at the time. End result though was a pretty tasty sausage roll that everyone quiet enjoyed!

    I’m also interested to know about freezing options for this recipe :)

      Hi Jo,
      I find freezing the sausage rolls just before the baking step is best. Simply defrost them in the fridge overnight and cook in the oven the next day. The pastry will be lovely and cripsy :) Enjoy, jx
      (you can freeze them after you have cooked them too but may not be as crispy when reheating and the filling may become dry)

    I made these but they came out rather tasteless? The looked great but boring & my little ones wouldn’t eat them, so not sure if I did something wrong? Might try again with beef mince…

    I made these yesterday and they turned out great! I found them to be full of flavour and my little girl loved it.
    Also they were really easy to make.

    These are so delicious! I didn’t have any eggplant so added a little extra carrot and chopped baby spinach. I also added a tiny pinch of salt to the mixture as my little one is a bit older. Great recipe and easy to make!

    I made these this way then with pork mince and instead of eggplant used grated fennel. Both plates were left empty.

    I too made this with Pork (picked up the wrong mince in the supermarket). They were delicious and a hit all round! I froze half the batch after baking and re-heated in the microwave – obviously not as crispy in the microwave but still enjoyed by the whole fam bam!

    I made these and my 11 month old loved them. We ate them for dinner too. I would like to try them with beef mince.

      try cutting crust from bread, rolling out so its a bit flatter then using filling in this instead of pastry. brush with egg or melted butter for a crown crispy fiinsh

    these were easy to make and look delicious however mine had heaps of liquid which came out during cooking. when they were done they were a soggy mess on the bottom, so I flipped them over on new baking paper and put them back into the oven. any way to avoid the sogginess?

    Hi, Just wanted to say that I adjusted this recipe to make it for my kids last night and they inhaled it! My son, who fights with me at EVERY meal just sat down, ate them all up and asked for seconds!! I was lost for words!

    Also, I went to buy a copy of the magazine so I could have used your thermie recipe but there’s no digital version…just food for thought as I would totally have bought the digital version but didn’t get the paper one because I needed the recipe straight away. I am still thinking about getting it but was wondering if you could tell me if the magazine mostly have thermie or regular recipes in it please? Thanks!

      The magazines are mainly traditional recipes. Some of the magazines have a Thermomix section. Ax

    I made these today for my 16 month old son and he LOVED them. He is a fussy eater, but he devoured these. I used a food processor to blitz the mince a bit more so it had a smoother texture. Thanks again, love the website and the magazine.

    Made these for my son, used mushrooms instead of eggplant (didn’t have any!), worked well!
    Ok, so my 11mo didn’t like them, but DH and the rest of the family did! (and are taking the leftovers to work!)
    thanks!

    Absolutely love it! I followed recipe 90% :) i had big egg plant so used half and had half of medium zucchini. Also peeled egg plant. I only regret not adding pepper and salt to half of the mince for my hubby and i. Kids loved it though so did we just needed a little salt and pepper. Also they were not soggy!
    Great stuff thx!
