Do you love to make your own sausage rolls at home? Do you have a favourite recipe? Although it is easy to pick up a box of sausage rolls from the supermarket, there is something delicious about eating a home-made sausage roll. The pastry seems flakier, the flavours are more pronounced and they don't seem as greasy. One thing is for sure - the kids love them! You don't need a party to make party sausage rolls!
Do you have a favourite recipe for making your own sausage rolls? If so - and if you are happy to share it - please leave a comment at the top of this article with the recipe and it will be shown underneath, for others to read. These ones below, are my daughter's two personal favourites - I have experimented with other flavours, but she keeps asking for these. She could eat this first recipe every day of the week if I let her!
Quick & Easy Party Sausage Rolls - the best!
Quick & Easy Party Sausage Rolls
Ingredients: 8 of your favourite sausages, 1/2 cup grated carrot, 1/2 cup grated cheese, 2 sheets frozen puff pastry (thawed), 1 egg (lightly beaten), sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with paper. Remove casings from sausages and squeeze contents into a medium bowl. Add grated carrot and cheese. Mix together with fingers. Cut each sheet of pastry in half. Spread the sausage meat evenly down the long side of each pastry piece, leaving a small gap from the edge. Start rolling until you get to the end and rub the egg wash along the other long edge to seal. Place the sausage roll on the baking tray so the join is underneath. Rub the rest of the egg over the top and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cut each log into 6 rolls. Cook for 25-30 minutes. Rest on tray for 5 minutes.
Dipping them into tomato sauce is a must!
Chicken Sausage Rolls
Ingredients: 500g chicken mince, 1 cup breadcrumbs, 1 egg, 1 carrot (grated), 4 spring onions (sliced thinly), 1/4 cup coriander leaves (chopped), 1/4 cup parsley leaves (chopped), 4 sheets frozen puff pastry (defrosted), an extra egg (for egg wash), cracked pepper.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line two baking trays with baking paper. In a bowl, combine the chicken mince, breadcrumbs, egg, coriander, parsley, carrot and spring onions. Add cracked pepper to taste - don't omit the pepper as it provides a lot of flavour. Cut a puff pastry sheet in half. Spoon out 1/8 of the mixture and place it in a sausage shape along one of the longer edges. Tuck the pastry over the meat and roll the sausage roll up. At the other end, dip your fingers in the egg wash and run it along the other long edge to seal. Place the sausage roll on the baking tray, seal side down. Cut into 3 - 6 pieces. Repeat for all the rolls. Rub remaining egg wash over the top of the sausage rolls. Bake for 25 - 35 minutes until golden on top.

Thanks Sue for the chance to share. School holidays is when I have my granddaughters. Sausage rolls are always on the agenda, Using my mothers recipe. 500 gms of sausage mince, a cup of apple sauce. cup of frozen green peas, half a cup of tomato sauce, one egg and a sprinkling of raw sugar. Mix all together then spoon on to the half cut sheet of pastry. Before placing into the oven I rub the top of the pastry with milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cooking takes about 30 minutes. By the way if the wind changes reverse the mixing procedure. Good luck and enjoy. David
