Hello foodies, welcome to today’s edition of Afroedibles. Today we would learn how to make meatpies and sausage rolls. Are we wondering why we would learn both at the same time? This is because the dough used in making both snacks requires the same process and we could just kill two birds with one stone . Let’s get cooking!!
