    How about these?...............


    Pete’s Instant Mash Sausage Rolls

    Ingredients

    200g Sainsbury’s “Be Good to Yourself” Extra Lean Pork Mince
    Or 200g Tesco Healthy Living Pork Mince
    1/2 packet (125g) Instant Mash
    2 small onions, finely chopped
    1 carrot, finely chopped
    1tsp thyme
    Mixed herbs
    1 tsp Schultz “spicy season all”
    *option 4 tbsp. apple sauce 4syn/4=1syn each

    Method

    Chop up an onion in a mini chopper, add 125g of Instant Mash to a bowl and add the onion, mixed herbs and hot water and mix to bread dough consistency. Place in a fridge for at least 1 hr.

    Lay out a sheet of cling film on a flat surface and place the mixture to it and cover over with a top layer of Clingfilm, using a rolling pin, rollout until about
    4-6mm thick. Cut to the width you want for the rolls.

    Chop the carrot, onion, thyme, mince & spices, in a mini chopper to form a paste. Season with salt & pepper, *add the apple sauce if required

    Peel back the top layer of Clingfilm and add a layer of meat then, using the Cling Film roll the mash to form a tube with the meat inside, seal the joint and egg wash, repeat with the remaining mix, return to the fridge to chill. Remove when ready to cook, allow returning to room temperature, egg wash again.


    Grease a flat tray with Fry light and place the rolls on it and egg wash again, place in a hot oven on 200c for 25 mins and browned.


    Sainsbury’s per roll=< 1 Syn Tesco’s per roll Free Ee

    Hi Debs84
    I have found a recipe in the SW extra easy cookbook pg 92, the picture in there looks lovely and I alway want to try but didn't know where you could get free lean pork mince. I shop at morrisons and they don't have it there.

    Penne with rich pork and tomato ragu

    Serves 4
    Ready in 30-35 mins
    Ragu can be frozen
    **Free on extra easy

    1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
    3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
    1 red chilli, deseeded (optional) and thinly sliced
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    794g/1lb 2oz extra lean mince pork
    198g/7oz cherry tomatoes, halved
    400g can of chopped tomatoes
    1 tbsp concentrated chicken stock
    8 tbsp finely chopped basil
    salt and pepper to taste
    397g/14oz dried penne or rigatoni pasta
    chopped basil leaves, for garnish

    1. Stir-fry onion, garlic and red chilli in a non stick frying pan over a medium heat for 2-3 mins
    2. Add cinnamon and pork mince and stir-fry for 3-4 mins. Add the tomatoes, stock and chopped basil. Bring to the boil. Season well, cover tightly and cook over a low heat for 20-25 mins.
    3. While sauce is cooking, cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain and return to the saucepan. Pour over the meat sauce. Toss to mix well, garnish with chopped basil.

    You can't get much extra lean mince any more - no extra lean lamb is available and only a little extra lean pork. Beef is quite easy to get hold of though. To qualify as being Extra Lean it has to be less than 5% fat so check on the back. If you're not sure just post the nutritional info and someone can calculate it for you.

    They did a News thing a couple of weeks ago:

    "Recent research has shown that extra lean lamb, pork and turkey mince is no longer readily available in supermarkets.

    If you come across a Food Optimising recipe that uses one of these extra lean minces and you’re unable to get hold of it, we recommend that you ask your butcher to mince very lean meat for you (with no skin if it’s poultry) or you mince your own at home. This way you can guarantee it’s Free!

    Our database currently shows that there are no packs of extra lean lamb mince available in UK or Irish supermarkets and only the following turkey and pork mince:

    Tesco Healthy Living Pork Mince, chilled, 500g pack
    Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Free Range Turkey Mince, chilled, 500g pack

    Fortunately extra lean beef mince is still readily available in all the major retailers."
