Beware of allergies - make sure it is safe for the children in your group to handle and taste the food used in this activity
You will need:
'How to cook at home' information sheets (see Printables)
Pre-made puff pastry - about 75g per child
Tomato ketchup or alternative savoury sauce
Extra flour for dusting
Two thin frankfurter sausages per child
A baking sheet
A small amount of olive oil
Pencils or felt-tip pens
Access to cooking facilities*
How to prepare:
Defrost the puff pastry if frozen. Grease the baking sheets with a little olive oil.
*If you don’t have access to cooking facilities, either...
a. Print or photocopy sufficient ‘How to cook at home’ information sheets. Give one to each child with their uncooked scroll.
b. Cook the frankfurters before the session following the packet instructions. Substitute the pastry with wraps cut to size.
How to make:
1. Wash your hands thoroughly. Sprinkle flour on a surface then roll out the pastry until it measures approximately 6 x 25 cms.
2. Spread some tomato ketchup, or other savoury sauce on to the rectangular piece of pastry.
3. Place a frankfurter sausages at each end of the rectangle.
4. Roll the pastry around the sausages to look like a scroll.
5. Place the scrolls on the greased baking tray. While an adult is cooking your sausage scroll write your name on a paper plate.If you cannot cook your sausage scroll immediately, place it on your plate and cover it in kitchen foil. Use sticky tape to stick a 'How to cook at home' information sheet on top of the foil.
An adult will need to cook the sausage scrolls.
Make sure you record which scroll belongs to whom before they go into the oven. Bake the scrolls at 200C/400F/Gas 6 for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry turns golden-brown. Ensure the sausage scrolls are throughly cooked. Place the cooked scrolls on the appropriate plates.
BEWARE the scrolls will be very hot when first removed from the oven. Make sure they have have cooled before they are given to the children.
