You guys know how much I love my appetizers right? Like seriously in love with them. I’ve stated so many times that we could build meals off of those hand-held treats and do so a lot of the time.

Everyone likes al little variety in their lives and this Sausage Roll Recipe is one that I love bringing to get togethers, no only because they are tasty but they literally feed a crowd.

Easy sausage rolls are a twist traditional savory British pastry that can be served longer or shorter depending on your preference. They are made from a mixture of sausage and spices that we wrap in puff pastry and bake up until nice and golden.

These are the perfect finger foods and they are really enjoyed by children as well. I know sometimes certain spices can make kids shy away from things, but these were mild but still had really good flavor.

Now we love dipping sauces with these and you can really go bold or mild, but our favorite has always been honey mustard. Something with the sausage and mustard really meld well together and make them the perfect pairing!

  • Puff pastry
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Thyme

These are one dish that you need not be intimidated by at all! I’m one of those people that likes to make things that look complicated but surprise people when they realize that it is completely easy peasy!

These sausage rolls are one of those appetizers that people will think are fancy and take a long time to make. Whenever people cook with puff pastry if always seems like there is some kind of cliche behind it like it is a difficult or classy kinda dish.

Hey, if people think I’m making difficult and classy things than thats awesome, makes me feel little better about my cooking ability because most of the time its super easy, but shhhh don’t tell anyone my secret.

  • In bowl mix together sausage, bread crumbs, 1 egg, thyme, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Section off into 6 equal portions and set aside.
  • On a floured surface unfold your pastry dough and gently roll out a little bit so it gets a little thinner then cut into 3 long rectangle sections.
  • Place sausage down the center of each section leaving an inch or so of pastry on either side.
  • Bring sides together and pinch to seal and pat down slightly, repeat with remaining sausage and dough.
  • Cut easy “log” 6 equal portions about 2″ long and then pierce the top with a knife 2 times to create venting holes.
  • Place sausage rolls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl whisk together egg and water and then brush on tops of the sausage rolls and bake in oven for about 20 minutes until pastry is puffed and tops are golden.

  1. This sounds great. Can they be served cold as well as hot, & can they be made ahead of time & just baked or reheated later for serving?

    1. No it doesn’t make the puff pastry one but oily. You are welcome to cook hour sausage ahead of time, but my recipe is with uncooked sausage and has been made this way for years with no issues.

  2. Great recipe! I mixed up the filling earlier in the day, then prepared & baked for a late night snack on Thanksgiving. Served with spicy apricot mustard dipping sauce, they were a huge hit!

  3. These were delicious and a huge hit! Easy to make, too! Served with my homemade honey mustard sauce. I’ll be making them again for Christmas!

    1. I’ve never made them that way before so I cant say for certain if they can or not. You could try it but let them thaw slightly before baking. If you do end up trying it let me know how it turns out!

  4. Would italian sausage be ok?? 😬 not sure if I’ve ever seen PLAIN pork sausage at the supermarket before. Would those spices interfere!?? I’d like to make these for a Christmas gathering.

    I’ve had sausage rolls at an Irish Pub in Atlantic City and thought they were so good and seemed so easy but never attempted making them! This recipe sounds awesome and SO EASY!!! Thanks for sharing!!

    1. I’ve never used Italian sausage as I’m not sure how the seasonings would go with it. We use just plain jimmy dean breakfast sausage for this recipe, there are usually already spices included in that but we like to add more for this specific recipe.

  5. This recipe sounds wonderful (and I’ve got to say you’ve got THE best blog name! ) My question is do you think crescent roll dough would work in this recipe? I find myself with several cans in my fridge and thought I’d try

    1. I’ve never used with crescent rolls. Those bake up rather quickly and I’m scared that the sausage wouldn’t fully cook through. But if you do try it let me know how it does turn out.

  6. Are you supposed to use both sheets of dough in the package (18 finished rolls per sheet), or just one sheet of dough? The recipe says that it makes 24 rolls, so I’m confused.
    Thanks!

  7. Could you sprinkle some cheese in with the mixture? Or do you think it would make too much excess oil? They look delish! Making tomorrow for Christmas eve!

    1. I’ve never tried it but I am a big advocate for adding cheese to any and all things. I say go ahead, it probably will add some more grease but I don’t think it should make too much of a difference.

  8. I have never felt the need to leave a review on a blog recipe but these sausage rolls turned out so amazing I just had to. My husband is english living in America and sausage rolls from Greggs were a MUST every time I visited him. Both him and I LOVED how these turned out, they taste just like they do in England. This recipe will be a new Christmas tradition for us, thank you!!

    1. Jenna, that is so awesome to hear! And I love knowing that they taste like the original, that is amazing! So happy that you both loved them and are going to make this a tradition, makes my heart happy! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas!
