  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Cut through the sausage skins and remove the meat. Combine with the mince, herbs, half the beaten egg, a little salt and plenty of black pepper. Beat the remaining egg with the milk to make a glaze.
  2. Using floured hands, mould the sausage mixture into 12 sausage shapes. Lay the pastry out on a lightly floured work surface and cut lengthwise into 12 strips. Roll each strip around a sausage shape, starting at one end and overlapping slightly, to form a ‘spiral’ around the meat.
  3. Space out on two baking trays, brush with the egg wash and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. To make the salsa, combine all the ingredients. Take to the picnic in a lidded jar and serve with the sausage rolls.
