Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Voice Over: Josh is also adding ingredients not usually found in the humble sausage roll.

Josh: "I definitely haven't put sprouts in a sausage roll before. It wouldn't be Christmas would if you didn't have sprouts."

Paul Hollywood: "We're back at Christmas?"

Josh: "Yes. We've got Christmas. I've got some turkey mince in there, some sausage meat as well, just because the turkey can get a bit dry."

Prue Leith: "I think it's a nice idea. It's Christmas in a sausage roll, which can't be a bad thing."

Voice Over: Josh's festive sausage rolls will be filled with pork, turkey, brussels sprouts, chestnuts, and apricots, along with a layer of cranberry sauce.

Prue Leith: "I can see a bit of lamination there."

Paul Hollywood: "I can see it. But with a laminated dough, you expect that lamination to grow so you don't end up with gaps. These are very gappy. It needed longer in the oven."

Josh: "Does it taste like Christmas day?"

Paul Hollywood: "It's got the sharpness coming from the cranberry. It's a bit dry. The sausage meat, it's quite solid."

Prue Leith: "It is a tiny bit dry, but I think the flavour is terrific and I like the texture. But if the pastry was a little more baked, I think it would be perfect."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
