Simple Sausage Rolls

Homemade Sausage Rolls

We have all been there, you need to create a plate of nibbles for some sort of gathering, the kids school fete. You can amaze your friends, family and kids with this simple but delicious recipe!


  • 8 x Fresh Sausages – Supermarkets tend to have an array of different ¨flavoured¨ sausages, so you can keep it simple or go with something a bit more adventurous.
  • Ready-made Pastry – either shortcrust or puff pastry (entirely up to you!)
  • Caramelised Onions (recipe here) – you could also use chutney, pickle, cranberry sauce, apple sauce – the possibilities are endless!!
  • Beaten Egg Yolk (don´t throw away the egg whites – I have another recipe for them!!)

Preheat oven to 180°

  1. Slit the sausage skins and peel if off.  Put the sausage meat in a bowl and combine – no seasoning required.
  2. Unwrap the pastry, and unroll it. Cut the pastry length ways to create two long rectangles. Tip: I use a pizza cutter to get a nice straight line.
  3. If you are going to add chutney, then this will be when to do it. Place a row of your chosen addition to the center of each pastry strip.
  4. Split the meat equally between the two rectangles, leaving enough of a pastry margin to wrap over the meat.
  5. Beat the egg yolk, you can add seasoning if you want to.
  6. Brush one side of the pastry with egg yolk, and pull over the other-side of the pastry to form the roll. (See photo below)
  7. Turn over the roll, and cut into individual sausage rolls – you can make 16 small sausage rolls, or 8 medium sausage rolls.
  8. Cut a diagonal slit into the top of the sausage roll, and brush with the beaten egg yolk.
  9. Cook in the oven for 20 – 25mins until golden brown and hot throughout.

Enjoy warm, or great cold as a snack!
