Next time you need to take a take a plate, be the fancy one who takes Homemade Sausage Rolls! This party staple is easier than you think to make at home and they are so delicious!
There is just something about sausage rolls that never get old. It doesn't matter if you're 3, 30 or 80, sausage rolls are always a good option and always seem to be the first thing people reach for!
Since I discovered homemade puff pastry a couple of weeks ago I've become a little obsessed with what I can make with it. Sausage rolls seemed like the next obvious step. They've been on my ridiculous mile long "things I want to make" list for ages. And why not? They are surprisingly easy and really tasty. And they always get a good "wow, you maaade those?" response. Always!
All they take is one sheet of this puff pastry or 2 sheets of bought puff pastry (no judging here) equal quantities of mince & sausage meat, a little tomato & BBQ sauce and some seasoning and you're away! You could
sneak add in all sorts of other things if you wanted to get veges into fussy kids - finely chopped onion, grated carrot or zucchini or even peas if you wanted, but I like to keep it simple. I eat my veges already.
They're the perfect snack for almost any occasion from kid's parties to Sunday lunch.
Homemade Sausage Rolls
- 1 sheet homemade puff pastry or 2 sheets bought rolled puff pastry (defrosted)
- 300 grams mince
- 300 grams sausage meat
- 2 tablespoon tomato sauce
- 2 tablespoon BBQ sauce
- 1 teaspoon mixed herbs
- Salt & pepper
For brushing on top
- 1 egg
- Sesame seeds or poppy seeds to sprinkle on top
- Split the pastry in half (if using 1 quantity of homemade pastry) and roll out into 2 30cm x 20cm rectangles.
- In a medium sized bowl, thoroughly mix together mince, sausage meat, tomato sauce, BBQ sauce, mixed herbs, salt & pepper. Put half the mixture in a long line down the middle of each sheet of pastry.
- Whisk the egg in a small bowl and using a pastry brush, brush the egg along one of the long edges of the pastry. This will help the pastry stick together once rolled up.
- Roll the long edge of the pastry (without the egg mixture) over the mince mixture, making a roll and place it on the lightly greased tray with the joined seam facing down.
- Brush the top of the rolls with the remaining egg and sprinkle sesame or poppy seeds on top if you wish.
- Cut each roll into 8-10 pieces.
- Bake at 200 degrees C for 30-40 minutes until cooked through and the pastry is golden brown and puffed up.

When I see Sausage rolls on Outrageous Fortune they look like little, short sausages with dough wrapped around them? Also, when they talk about "pies" what exactly are these? Is it like a "Hot Pocket"?
Hi Thomas! That's basically right, except puff pastry, not dough for both sausage rolls and pies! I have a recipe for a mince and cheese pie on my website, the handheld version of this is the pies they refer to! They are both a kiwi staple!

To clarify for us Yanks, do you mean what we call "ketchup" when you say "tomato sauce"? For us, the two are completely different.
Hi Shari. Yes! When I say tomato sauce, that does mean ketchup! So confusing isn't it!
I wanted to ask which kind of meat you used for the mince as well as which herbs you used exactly?
Hi Nick - these instructions may have been lost in translation, sorry! Mince is ground beef, and mixed herbs are something we buy in a box, it's a combination of thyme, sage and marjoram!
Yum these were real nice! Thanks for sharing 🙂 i love all your 'homemade stuff'....am going to try some more things now! could I freeze these and if yes would you freeze them raw?
HI Melanie! I'm so glad you enjoyed them! You could definitely freeze them raw as long as you are using meat that hasn't already been frozen and thawed! Laura

Hey there, that's awesome, they will go down a treat I'm sure! 🙂
