To make George’s sausage rolls, first of all he said you should get your hands on your ‘favourite fancy sausages’.

‘I used beef with oregano and parsley,’ he explained.

Then, you simply need to find a sheet of frozen puff pastry and cut it in half. 

‘Squeeze out the meat from the sausage onto the pastry and get a couple of strips of carrot for on top,’ he said.

Then, fold the pastry over and use a fork to push down the edges and brush the pastry with egg wash, sesame seeds and salt.

To cook the sausage rolls, George explained you just need to put them straight into your air fryer for 12 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.

If you want to cook them in your regular oven, it’ll take 25 minutes at the same temperature.

Thousands who saw the simple recipe were impressed online, writing comments like ‘these look great’ and ‘fantastic’.

‘No joke, I am making the kids these for lunch. You have inspired me,’ one fellow parent wrote.

‘Such a great easy recipe! Love that they can be eaten cold at lunch and still taste 10/10!’ another added.

Previously, George has shared his genius trick for turning leftover sandwich crusts into cinnamon scrolls, and parents across Australia have labelled it ‘genius’. 

To make the cinnamon scrolls, all you need to do is slice the crusts off a piece of bread, keeping them attached together carefully with your knife.

Once you’ve done this, George said you need to do a ‘bit of a twirl’ by folding the crusts into a circle.

Secure the circle or ‘scroll’ with a skewer in order to keep it tight and together.

‘Add some butter to a pan, add some cinnamon and then put your scrolls into the hot pan,’ George said.

Leave them to soak up the butter and cinnamon for a few minutes, then enjoy the scrolls hot.

What are George’s top lunch tips?

* Do the grocery shopping on Sunday and plan ahead

* Try and change the lunchbox up daily to get variety and different vitamins

* Don’t just do sandwiches – you can use wraps, pasta, rice and eggs if the school allows them

* Use the colours of the rainbow in order to make it exciting for your kids

* Avoid sugary treats, and instead opt for exotic fruits like dragonfruit or passion fruit

* Chop your food with flare and colour co-ordinate different sections

George shared how you can make the school lunchbox more exciting for your children:

‘Bright colours in the form of fresh produce [are key], use the rainbow as a form of inspiration,’ George told Daily Mail Australia.

The father of two also recommends making your sandwiches less boring by putting twists on them.

George regularly makes a ‘ravwich’, which is his take on the Italian ravioli, or the ‘spring-wich’, which is his take on a Chinese spring roll – for his two girls, and he said both make a fun alternative to a regular sandwich.

‘A bento box is also a cool and easier way to pack school lunches,’ he said.

‘There is no cross contamination – which is often an issue for kids – and it’s also leak proof, which means the food looks good.’

While you might think that preparing a lunchbox that is as good looking as George’s takes hours, the 45-year-old said that in fact, it only takes him between five and ten minutes.

‘I’m usually prepared, which helps,’ he said.

‘I spend one afternoon peeling, cutting and washing all the fruit and veggies. Then I can just keep them in airtight containers in the fridge ready to go.’ 

Typically his lunches are stuffed full of ‘bite-sized vegetables’.

Mini cucumbers, mini tomatoes and mini carrots are big hits in his household, while using a red capsicum as a cup for other food has also proven popular.

‘Anything bite-sized is less daunting for children,’ he said.

‘They’re more likely to pick it up and try it. Smaller pieces of fruit are fun to use for their bright colours also. Strawberries and grapes are my favourites.’
