Juicy sausage encased in buttery golden puff pastry. Everybody loves a good sausage roll! This recipe uses 3 simple ingredients. No faffing or fussing, just the easiest, quickest way to make a plateful of fantastic sausage rolls.
You won't believe how many our family of four can get through in a day. I've counted it up, and even I'm a little shocked.....

Sausage Rolls Recipe (1)

Served as part of a picnic, for an appetizer or as a hearty lunch (the kids especially love them with baked beans), these sausage rolls can be served warm, fresh from the oven, or cold straight from the fridge.

A word of advice though - be sure to make enough.
Everybody in my family needs to 'test' at least 2 each (so that's 8 gone), then they like a minimum of 3 each for lunch.

Then everyone sneaks back for one more later.

Then Chris and I might also grab another when the kids aren't looking.
That's 26 sausages rolls in one day. We might have a problem.

What do we need?

  • Ready-rolled puff pastry - for extra speediness
  • Pork sausages (or use sausage meat)
  • 1 egg

How to make them

Full instructions and quantities can be found in the recipe card at the end of this post.

  • Remove the skins from the sausages and unroll the pastry.
  • Slice the pastry in half length-ways, then line up the sausages along the middle of both lengths pastry strips - squish the sausage meat together so it's even.

  • Brush the top length of each of the two pastry pieces with egg wash and roll up, then press the seams shut using a fork.
  • Brush the tops with egg wash and cut into mini sausage rolls. Prick the top of each one with the tip of a sharp knife.

  • Bake in the oven until the pastry is golden brown.

Want large sausage rolls?

Make them larger by cutting each roll into 4 so you get 8 large sausage rolls altogether. Cook for an extra 2-4 minute - until piping hot throughout.

What to serve them with

Why not serve these sausage rolls as part of a picnic with:

  • CreamyPotato Salad
  • Cheese and Tomato Tarts
  • Easy Pasta Salad
  • French-Pressed SandwichBites
  • Chocolate Aussie Crunch Squares

Ingredient swaps

  • Try adding finely chopped jalapenos or grated parmesan cheese to the sausage meat.
  • Spread the sausage with onion chutney or mustard before rolling in the pastry.
  • Try using different varieties of sausage - such as pork and leek, or spicy sausages.
  • Top withsesame seeds or poppy seeds before baking.

Why don't you add salt and pepper?

Sausages are usually already well-seasoned, so there's no need to add more.

✎ Notes

Can I make them ahead?

Yes, you can make the sausage rolls, then quickly cool, cover and refrigerate. They should keep in the refrigerator for 2 days.
If you want to reheat them, place them, uncovered, on a tray in the oven at 180C/350F for 8-10 minutes until piping hot throughout.

Can I freeze them?

Yes, you can freeze either before baking (so long as you use chilled pastry and not frozen-then-defrosted pastry - it's not recommended to defrost then re-freeze raw pastry) or after baking.

Unbaked sausage rolls can be baked from frozen - add an extra 3-5 minutes onto the baking time - bake until piping hot throughout (71C/160F is recommended if you want to check the temperature).

If you froze them after baking, then defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Reheat uncovered, on a tray in the oven at 180C/350F for 8-10 minutes until piping hot throughout.

Want larger sausage rolls?

Make them larger by cutting each roll into 4 so you get 8 large sausage rolls altogether. Cook for an extra 2-4 minute - until piping hot throughout.

    These were unbelievably sooo good. I did add some spice to the sausage (garlic power, onion powder, granulated garlic and dried parsley). So delish and addictive. Even my 9 year old loved it! Thanks for this recipe

    Easy and yummy. You can add additional herbs, but I used Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage needed nothing.

    Cutting into 2” rolls really helped the crunch factor

    I put ET bagel seasoning on top, really tasty! Also tried sesame seeds and Himalayan salt. All great!

    So easy. Why didn't I think of these before. Thank you so much.

    I used your tip and added cheese to them and it worked perfectly. They went well with some Thai chili sauce too. I'll try the mustard next time.

      I tried yellow and spicy mustard both good. Next time I’ll pull out my chili oil.

    Very easy to make especially since I don't like working with puff pastry. The ready rolled puff pastry is perfect. Everyone liked them.

    Question - has anyone ever tried using Little Smokies in place of the sausage? thanks

    Where do you purchase ready rolled puff pastry? Neither Walmart nor Publix carries it. Is there someone else to replace it that is as easy to use as your video shows? Thank you

      should say is there "something" else to use instead of ready rolled puff pastry

        My MIL uses crescent rolls. She just smooths the triangles into a large rectangle (or if you can find the rectangular version).

    • Lisa says

      Pepperidge farm puff pastry sheets are in the frozen dessert section at Publix.

    Does the raw sausage cook thru completely in the time given? And does it make the bottom of the ruff pastry roll greasy? Thanks

    • Nicky Corbishley says

      Yes Karen, the sausage cooks through, and the sausage rolls aren't greasy.
