Cooking Time: 40 minutes


1 pack Heck Pork Sausages

2 tsp sunflower oil

85g unsalted butter

6 dessert apples

85g soft brown sugar

350g puff pastry.

Flour for rolling



  1. Fry the sausages with the sunflower oil over a medium heat approximately 10 - 12 minutes in a 23cm heavy-based frying pan with a handle that is ovenproof. Remove sausages from the pan.
  2. Melt the butter in the frying pan, add the sugar and when the mixture starts to turn brown, remove from the heat.
  3. Peel the apples, quarter, and core. Put the apples in the pan with the butter and sugar and cook over a medium heat until the sugar is a deep caramel, this will take approximately 25 minutes.
  4. In the meantime roll out the pastry until it is 3mm thick (height of a £1 coin), and cut a circle of 26cm, using a plate as a guide. Lightly prick all over with a fork, place on a baking sheet and chill while you are cooking the apples.
  5. Cut the sausages in half lengthwise and rearrange the apples with the sausages to form a fan shape in the frying pan
  6. Preheat the oven 190°C/170°C Fan/ Gas Mark 5. Place the pastry over the apples and cook in the oven for 40 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and crisp.
  7. Allow the pan to cool for approximately 30 minutes before running a knife around the edge of the dish and inverting it onto a large serving plate.
  8. Serve with Crème Fraiche or vanilla ice-cream.
