  • 1 brown onion, finely diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 600g pork and sage grind
  • 1 cup fine breadcrumbs
  • 15 sheets filo pastry
  • 1–2 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter, for brushing
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds *


  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • ½ iceberg lettuce
  • ½ punnet cherry tomatoes *
  • ½ telegraph cucumber *


  • tomato sauce or chutney (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 200°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  • 1 Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan on medium heat and cook onion and carrot for about 6 minutes, until soft. Remove from pan and allow to cool slightly. Place pork grind, cooked vegetables and breadcrumbs in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  • 2 Using clean hands, mix until well combined, then divide the mixture into ten portions. Place 1 sheet filo on a clean bench, with long end facing you. Brush with olive oil or butter and place another two sheets on top. Cut filo sheets in half vertically.
  • 3 Place 1 portion of pork mixture onto one of the cut halves of filo, on the bottom half of the sheet. Shape pork mixture into a sausage, allowing 3–4cm clear from the edges. Roll over once, tuck in all the sides of filo and roll up into a tight parcel. Repeat steps to make a total of 10 rolls.
  • 4 Place filo rolls onto prepared tray, seam-side-down. Lightly brush with olive oil/ butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden and cooked through.
  • 5 In a small bowl, combine all dressing ingredients and mix well. Roughly chop lettuce; cut tomatoes in half; cut cucumber in half lengthways and thinly slice. Add to bowl with dressing and toss to combine just before serving.
  • To serve, Place 1–2 pork and sage filo rolls on each plate. Add a dollop of tomato sauce or chutney (if using) and serve salad on the side.
