Homemade Sausage Rolls

My nan recently showed me how to make sausage rolls and I am never going back to store bought! They are a lot nicer.

Crack an egg and gently beat it.

I need to try this with homemade sausage meat.. I bet that would be amazing. But, store bought is fine!

Roll out store bought or home made shortcrust OR puff pastry dough. These pictures are with shortcrust pastry.

Roll some sausage meat in flour and line it up on the pastry until one side is covered, like below.

Brush on some egg next to the sausage meat.

Roll the pastry around the sausage meat.

Cut of the excess pastry (make more if there is enough!)

Cut the roll in diagonal pieces however big you want them.

Make a slit in the pastry of each roll.

Place on a baking try and brush on some egg on each of the rolls.

Bake for 25 minutes at 180 or until golden brown and crispy on the outside.

Above are the short crust pastry sausage rolls.

There are the puff pastry rolls. There was very little difference. I probably preferred the shortcrust sausage rolls however I think my puff pastry ones probably needed a bit longer in the oven.


  1. Just having a browse of your blog and you've made some wonderful things. Including these sausage rolls. Ooh they look so good nom nom :)
