Z has been looking at his LeapFrog map a lot since the Olympics started to try to learn where all the countries are so we used this to look at Australia.
I found it quite hard to come up with something typically Australian for us to cook, but after extensive google searching found that sausage rolls are popular Australian food.
We kept it very, very simple.
I cheated and bought ready made sausage meat, and some ready to roll pastry ( this month has been especially busy with school finishing and holidays starting ) and we simply rolled out the pastry, added the meat, rolled the pastry around the meat and painted the top with some egg wash. We cooked it in the oven for about 25 minutes, until the top was nice and brown.
They were yummy and all the kids loved them. Not the healthiest obviously, but ok for a treat!
You can see all the details and download a fun passport and placemat over on Glittering Muffins so do pop over for a look.
