Sausage rolls are always a party favourite. Our Mum was renowned for her sausage rolls and there was always trays of them in her freezer. Sadly, mum never wrote down her recipes so we can’t pass on her recipe.

What sausages to use?

Any sausage you fancy. Try to use gourmet artisan sausage that has some spices or flavour that is pronounced or vary the sausages and get a variety of flavours.

Introduce some extra flavour by spreading the pastry with a tasty chutney or relish. We like to use a spicy tomato relish which boosts the sausage roll flavour.

Puff pastry

Look for store bought puff pastry made with butter, as it tastes better than margarine. We used Pampas butter puff pastry which comes in frozen 24 cm (9 1/2 inch) square sheets.
