Sausage Rolls

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

A sausage roll is a British savoury pastry snack popular in the Commonwealth of Nations and countries of the European Union. In addition to being sold at retail outlets, they are also available from bakeries as a take-away food item. A miniature version is popular as a buffet or party food.

The basic composition of a sausage roll is generally a sheet or sheets of puff pastry formed into tubes around sausage meat and glazed with egg or milk before being baked. They can be served either hot or cold. Historically, during the 19th century they were made using shortcrust pastry instead of puff pastry.

Notes

You can freeze the uncooked sausage rolls in an airtight container. Alternatively, you can cook them and them freeze them for a quick and easy lunch – simply grab them out of the freezer and reheat.
For sausage rolls with crispy bases place the sausage rolls directly onto non-stick baking trays. However, if you're worried about your sausage rolls sticking to the baking trays, you can place baking paper down first. Please note that if you do choose to use baking paper, the bottom of your sausage rolls may not become crispy due to the excess liquid that will sit on the baking paper from the sausage rolls as they cook. If this is the case, add fresh baking paper halfway through cooking or drain any liquid off the baking paper and turn the sausage rolls over.
