If an ordinary pork sausage roll isn’t yummy enough for you, Colin’s going to elevate it to a spiced lamb sausage roll with Harissa yoghurt. It sounds good because it is! With herbs and spices and delicious flavours, Colin isn’t just showing you how to make a sausage roll, but an event.





Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Line a large oven tray with baking paper.


Heat oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add onion, rosemary, garlic and fennel seeds. Cook, stirring for 3 minutes, or until soft. Stir in smoked paprika and cayenne pepper. Remove to a large bowl. Cool for 5 minutes.


Add nutmeg, ginger, mince, breadcrumbs and egg to onion mixture. Season. Mix well. Shape mixture into a log approximate length of pastry, put on pastry. Roll up pastry to enclose filling. Put seam-side down on prepared tray. Brush top of pastry with extra egg yolk. Sprinkle with extra fennel seeds and season. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden and cooked through.


Meanwhile, to make Harissa yoghurt, in a small food processor, pulse red peppers, oil, spices and garlic until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in yoghurt, zest, juice and mint. Season. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Slice sausage roll and serve with mixed salad and harissa yoghurt.
