INGREDIENTS

The Filling

  • 500g BUDS Mince
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds, toasted and ground
  • ½ tbsp dried sage
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 10 sprigs fresh rosemary, picked and chopped

*It’s super important to do this and if you get an overlap of pastry underneath, keep it there! It’ll keep the moisture in and prevent the bottom of the sausage roll from becoming soggy.

Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray, and set aside. Cut out 12 large circles of the shortcrust pastry to line each muffin cup – a good tip here is using something in your kitchen as a template that fits the muffin tray – such as a measuring cup, a glass, or a beer can. Pop these guys into the base of the muffin tray. Cut 12 smaller circles from the puff pastry, to make the lids. Fill each pastry-lined muffin cup with the cooled BUDS Mince mixture, and then brush the edges with egg yolk. Top with your puff pastry lids, and use a fork to pinch down the pastry edges together. Brush the top with egg yolk and bake for 20-25 minutes. Best serve with tomato ketchup and a cold beer.

In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the onion, carrot, and celery, and cook until soft. Stir in the BUDS Mince and garlic, breaking up the mince as much as possible, then brown the mince until evenly browned all over. Add the tomato paste to the mince mixture, then cook until the paste just starts to stick to the bottom of the pot – then add the red wine. Tie the bay leaf, rosemary and thyme into a little bundle, and throw into the pot. Cook the wine down until it has nearly reduced, then add the tinned tomatoes and stock. Cook for 45 minutes until the tomatoes have broken down and the flavour of the herbs have come through the sauce. Discard the herb bundle and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese. Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper, if necessary. Bring a large pan full of water to boiling, and season with a lot of salt. Then add more salt. Throw your chosen pasta in, and cook accordingly until perfectly al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving that salty pasta water. Mix your pasta, bolognese, and a good glug of the reserved water together in the pan and mix together well. Serve with extra Parmesan.

  • 2 whole brown onions peeled and diced
  • 2 celery sticks
  • 2 whole carrots, peeled and diced
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 5 sprigs fresh rosemary sprigs
  • ½ bunch fresh thyme
  • 2 pieces fresh bay leaf
  • 1 cup of good red wine
  • 2 400g tins of good quality tomatoes
  • 2 cups of stock
  • ½ cup parmesan

The Bechamel Sauce

  • 60g butter
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 litre milk
  • 2 fresh bay leaves
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 cup grated parmesan
  • 1 whole egg

To Assemble

  • 16 lasagne sheets
  • A generous serve of grated mozzarella
  • A generous serve of grated parmesan
  • 10 fresh basil leaves

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Let’s start with making the filling. In a large Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot, and celery, and cook until soft. Stir in the BUDS Mince and garlic, breaking up the mince as much as possible, then brown the mince until evenly browned all over. Add the tomato paste then cook until the paste just starts to stick to the bottom of the pot, then throw in the red wine. Tie the bay leaf, rosemary and thyme into a little bundle, and add to the pot. Cook wine until it has all but reduced, then add the tinned tomatoes and stock. Cook for 45 minutes, until the tomatoes have broken down and the flavour of the herbs have come through the sauce and your house starts to smell delicious. Discard the herb bundle, then stir in the grated Parmesan cheese. Check the seasoning of the mixture, and add more salt and pepper if necessary. Remove from the pot from the heat.

Make the Bechamel
Place the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and allow to melt. Add the flour and stir together into a smooth paste. Slowly whisk in the milk and then stir until the sauce boils, then turn down to a low simmer. Add the bay leaf and a pinch of nutmeg, then cook on low heat until the sauce has thickens. Careful not to cook it too high and burn it! A good bechamel might look weird initially but we promise you, it’ll all come together into a consistent texture soon enough. Stir in the Parmesan and add the salt and pepper. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

Assemble the Lasagne
Grease a 20cm x 20cm square ovenproof dish and line the bottom with some of the lasagne sheets. Thinly spread over a quarter of the Bolognese sauce and a few basil leaves, cover with more lasagne sheets, then spoon over a quarter of the Bechamel sauce. Repeat the layers, finishing with the last of the Bechamel sauce. Sprinkle (liberally) with the mozzarella and bake for 25–30 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked all the way through.

  • 4 tbsp Shaoxing wine
  • ½ cup stock
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
Wash and drain the lettuce, then trim the bottom of the lettuce, and carefully separate the leaves to form small cups. Soak the shiitake mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes, then drain and chop finely. Discard the stems. Heat the peanut oil in a wok until it’s just smoking and stir-fry the BUDS Mince quickly, until it just begins to brown. Add the mushrooms, water chestnuts and spring onions, and stir-fry over a moderately high heat to combine all of the flavours. Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper to taste, Shaoxing wine, stock, soy and oyster sauces and combine well. Cook until the sauce reduces and thickens slightly – this should take around 5 minutes. Pile the meat into a large serving bowl, garnish with the sesame seeds and serve accompanied with a bowl of the lettuce cups. Using your lettuce as your cup, spoon in a serve of the mince, roll up, and eat! This can get messy, so we recommend having a plate and napkins handy.

Heat a large frying pan or BBQ grill plate, on high heat. Cut the burger buns in half and toast each side under a grill or in the oven. You want these to be golden brown, and not overly toasted.Cook the BUDS patties for 2 minutes on each side, or until they have a dark brown crust. When the BUDS patties are nearly finished, add 2 slices of cheese on each pattie while they’re still on the grill, so the cheese melts over the edges of the pattie. Place the cooked burger patty on the bottom bun then top with the burger sauce and some diced onion and pickles slices. Finish with the top bun and garnish the plate with the lettuce and tomato.
