Fetta Pumpkin sausage rolls

Fetta Pumpkin sausage rolls. They weren’t shifting out of my head until I made them. A few pumpkins came and went, fetta went into other dishes, and then finally the planets had aligned and voila… there was fetta and pumpkin in the fridge at the same time.

Time to get roasting.

There aren’t too many ingredients in here, so the key to getting it to taste great, is using great ingredients. A very sweet, seasonal pumpkin, some tasty Greek fetta, local whole garlic cloves and pastry.

It’s not often you’ll find packaged pastry in my recipes. I hadn’t had any in my freezer for a really long time. So long in fact that, the pastry and I just sort sat there, eyeing each other off for awhile. In the end though, pastry won. I wasn’t about to expand my culinary skills on making puff pastry just yet, (give me another 15 years perhaps) and a shorter crust pastry just wasn’t going to cut it for this one. So I slit the plastic, and funnily enough the world didn’t end.

  2. I love my veg sausage rolls – it is the main reason that puff pastry sneaks into my freezer – I keep intending to try other pastry but who am I kidding the sausage rolls are fancy

  3. This looks amazing!
    Sometimes using a storebought ingredients just ensures that the food gets made- and surely that justifies it.
    I’m impressed that you are doing all this baking and cooking with a new baby!

  4. Oh, dear, I hadn’t thought we need to apologize for using a packaged pastry dough?? (Since I’m using one in tomorrow’s blog.) Well… I’m all about convenience sometimes, there will come a day when my kids have moved out and I’m no longer working that I hope to learn how to make puff pastry. It would be great to know how. I love your combination of flavors here.. they look so pretty!

  5. I bet these smelt amazing when they were cooking in the oven. Pumpkin and fetta are a great combination. I always have frozen pastry in my freezer. It’s not my preferred choice but always handy in a crisis!

  6. Brydie darling, I love that when the rest of us have newborns, we buy takeaway meals and disposable nappies and whine about how little sleep we get. You on the other hand buy the odd packet of puff pastry to wrap your delicious homemade fillings in. You really are something else, girlfriend. 🙂 xx

    • Celia I bought takeaway last night, the best I could think of in the area, and it was…crap. Standards round here need to be well and truly lowered! Cheese on toast would have been better.

      Mr Chocolate said it was Napoli in Bocca from now on or nothing for him 🙂

      • Jane I had a few problems myself trying to leave a comment the other day. Then I realised what I was doing wrong. When you have to read, and then key in, the two handwritten words (to prove you are not a robot) I was typing them in as two words. When I joined the two words together as one, it worked.

  9. Oh …oh oh…I am just soooooooo happy about this post!!!!!!!!!! For the past 2 years I have been driving to a bakery 30 minutes away and buying their delicious pumpkin and feta rolls. Every time I ate them, I tried to work out what the ingredients were…. my family was fed some terrible concoctions as I sought the elusive pumpkin and feta roll.
    Thankyou thankyou thankyou… I am picking a pumpkin out of the garden right now!!! I am in pumpkin feta heaven.
    I know I sound strangely excited about this …but the recipe has remained so elusive for so long and I googled everything!!
