Sausage Plait is a dish that has been a life saver. When times are hard, this works as a main dish, side dish and a substantial snack. This is so easy to make and so cheap it fills tummies and doesn’t hit the purse. Using Sausage meat, onion and apple are all readily available. Slicing the puff pastry into strips creates a lovely display of what’s to come.
