If you want to try and increase your kids vegetable intake this recipe can be adapted by adding extra grated or very finely chopped vegetables to the mince mix, but some kids are undercover detectives, so err on the side of slightly less vegetables to beef mince in the mix if they are fussy with their veges. If you don’t have kids who are undercover vege detectives, then it’s a good one to get the kids started with some cooking skills.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees fan forced. In a bowl mix together beef mince, finely chopped onion, grated carrot, grated cheese, and beaten egg, and season with salt and pepper until a good consistency is achieved. If it is falling apart easily at this point consider add a little more egg. And if the mixture is too wet, then consider adding ¼ cup breadcrumbs to the mix. Then cut puff pastry sheets into 4.
On each quarter put a small amount of mince mixture. Then using some extra beaten egg brushed down one side roll the pastry up enclosing the mince mixture in a long sausage shape (depending on the occasion these can be made a little smaller, by dividing the pastry sheet into 6). These can then be placed onto a lined baking tray and the tops brushed with egg wash. Bake in a moderate oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
Serve with tomato sauce/barbeque sauce.
