Meals being prepared for the freezer.

Use Baker's Piping Bag for Making Sausage RollsWhen I make sausage rolls, I use a bakers piping bag for the meat, this makes the job much easier and cleaner, but the tip (which I found myself just recently) is to spray the inside of the bag, with some oil and the meat will squeeze out much easier and as an extra bonus, the bag is easier to clean.
