  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (gas mark 4, 350°F) and take the puff pastry out of the fridge to allow it to thaw.
  • Skin the sausages by removing the meat from the skin and form the meat into a block shape. Make sure the thickness is even throughout so it can cook equally.
  • Unroll the puff pastry and leave it on the baking sheet that comes with it. Place the sausage meat block onto the pastry in the centre.
  • With a sharp knife, make diagonal slits from the bottom corner of the sausage meat all the way to the top corner. Do this to both sides. Then cut the top and bottom corners of the pastry.

  • Use an egg wash to coat the pastry.
  • Take the top and bottom flap and fold it on top of the sausage block.
  • Begin to layer the strips at a diagonal angle over the sausage meat alternating the sides each time. Gently press down the ends of each strip.
  • Place the sausage plait (with the baking paper underneath it) onto a baking tray. Brush the egg wash over the pastry.
  • Bake in the oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown and cooked throughout.
