Sausage Rolls

Whenever we head back to England for a couple of weeks I always have a list of food to eat.  All the foods we can’t get stateside.  Fish and chips, cornish pasties, chocolates, pork pies, and sausage rolls!  Not to mention the crumbles my MIL makes.   Surprise, surprise I usually gain a few pounds and then have to Zumba like crazy.  But it’s worth it.  🙂

We had friends over a few nights ago and I made sausage rolls as finger food.  I don’t make it often because there are only so many Zumba classes I can take!  But these are super easy to make and very yummy.

Preheat the oven to 425F.

To start with chop half an onion and saute in melted butter.

Once the onions are soft let them cool a bit.  In a mixing bowl add about a pound of ground pork, some fennel seeds, salt and pepper, oregano and basil.

Freshly grate parmesan cheese.  About 3/4 cup will do and add to the bowl.

Add the onions then mix.  Don’t be shy dig in with your hands!  They will clean up.  🙂

Roll out some puff pastry.  One of these days I’ll learn how to make it from scratch but until then store bought it is.  Place a line of sausage onto the pastry.

Roll it once to surround the sausage and then use a knife to cut the pastry.  Cut the roll in half and place on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and flaky and the sausage is cooked through.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

I’ll be on the road this week so it will be a bit before I do my next post.  See you soon!

  1. There must be something in the air. I, too, made sausage this past weekend. Unlike you, I used some of it to make ravioli. I’ve got plenty left over, however, so there’s still time to give your recipe a try. 🙂

  2. That is so true – what is it about the food that we grow up with that it makes such an impression on us? I am from Holland and don’t miss the country at all – it’s a bit excessive to travel to Europe from NZ just to have a ‘loempia’ or other food I miss. And before you suggest it – it’s not the same to go to a restaurant here. Those sausage rolls made my mouth water!

  3. Love sausage rolls! Am having tea w girlfriends today at British Pantry Restaurant. We always start with their sausage rolls as an appetizer before the tea sandwiches – yours looks lovely!
