Save Recipe

I was introduced to the wonderful world of sausage rolls the year we spent living in England. This British sausage roll is similar in popularity to our USA Pigs in a Blanket. They are a savory, easy to make snack that are perfect for parties.

Savory ground sausage is seasoned with panko bread crumbs and spices for a perfect flavor. Then the filling is wrapped with puff pastry dough and baked until golden brown. Let me tell you, these sausage rolls do NOT last long in my house! My three teen boys gobble them up so quickly!

Ingredients

sausage roll ingredients
  • puff pastry dough – I prefer Pepperidge Farms brand
  • ground pork sausage -adjust flavor by choosing hot, mild, or sage flavored varieties
  • eggs
  • panko breadcrumbs – these are thicker than traditional bread crumbs
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning

Step by step

sausage roll filling ingredients in white bowl before mixing
  1. Thaw puff pastry dough. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine the sausage, one egg, panko bread crumbs, and seasonings. Mix together with your hands until blended through.
  3. Divide each puff pastry sheet into thirds lengthwise, cutting along the folded edge.
  4. Divide the sausage mixture into six equal portions. Roll each section into a log until the length is the same as the puff pastry. Place the sausage in the middle of the puff pastry and pinch the dough closed around the filling. Place them seam-side down on the prepped baking sheet.

Hint: if it is hard to fit the dough around the filling press the dough lightly with your fingers to flatten it along the sides.

  1. With a large knife, gently cut each sausage roll into four equal pieces.
  2. Mix an egg wash and brush each roll with it before baking for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Serving suggestions

You can eat these rolls hot or at room temperature, by themselves or serve alongside yellow or honey mustard as a dip.

Storage

Store sausage rolls in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 5 days.

To freeze unbaked sausage rolls stop before the egg wash. Freeze rolls on a baking sheet until frozen through, then transfer to a freezer bag up to 3 months. To bake, lay frozen rolls on a baking sheet, add egg wash and extend baking time 5-10 minutes until golden brown and cooked through to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
