Serve these turkey and stuffing sausage rolls in a bowl as a snack, or on plates as a starter, perhaps garnishing with a nice mixed salad or coleslaw. A great kids recipe for making the most of any leftover turkey

Method
1.
Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the onion and mushrooms until soft, remove from the pan and drain on kitchen towel. Leave to cool
2.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into two 16cm wide x 40cm long rectangles, approximately 5mm thick. Cut the pastry lengthways down the middle and place onto a non-stick baking sheet. Leave to rest in the fridge
3.
If you are using ready-made stuffing, prepare the mix as per packet instructions (up until the cooking stage), otherwise take your leftover stuffing out of the fridge. Dice the turkey into 1cm cubes
4.
Add the filling ingredients to a bowl (including the turkey and stuffing) and mix until combined
5.
Spoon the filling into a piping bag. Remove the pastry from the fridge and carefully pipe a thick, neat line of the filling down the length of the pastry towards the edge, leaving a 1.5cm wide gap between the edge of the pastry and the filling. If you don't have a piping bag, gently place spoonfuls of the mix with a teaspoon
Room for a little one
Let your little one have a go at piping in this step. If they struggle to get a neat line at first, don’t worry – scoop the mixture back in using a spatula, and let them try again
6.
Mix the egg yolks and water in a bowl. Lightly brush the 1.5cm strip of pastry closest to the filling with egg wash
7.
Fold the rest of the pastry (the portion that has not been brushed with egg wash) tightly over the filling and press down well along the egg-washed strip to seal. Any excess pastry will be trimmed off later
8.
Repeat this process with the second sheet of pastry and place both sheets in the fridge for 10 minutes to firm up
9.
Once the pastry is firm, trim off any excess along the join and then use a fork to press down the join and crimp. Repeat for the second sheet
Room for a little one
Your little helpers can crimp the edges of the pastry using the fork, as long as they’re careful not to poke their fingers!
10.
Brush all of the pastry with more egg wash and return to the fridge for 10 minutes. Remove from the fridge and apply a second coating of egg wash
11.
Preheat the oven to 180˚C/gas mark 5
12.
Using a sharp knife, cut each of the long rolls into 8 x 5cm mini rolls, return to the non-stick baking tray
13.
Place in the centre of the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a deep golden brown colour
14.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving
