Seven sausage roll recipes for everyone
Shh, we already know your mom makes the best sausage rolls. Everyone’s mom does. Plus, she still has a secret ingredient (besides love) that she won’t reveal. Spoiler alert: it’s probably barbecue sauce. It’s the secret to 99% of the buns made by mom. Unless you’re Joel Creasey’s mother, in which case it’s… salami.
Now, if you’re ready to expand your sausage repertoire like Joel’s mom, do we have the list for you? Trust us, there’s a lot more going on in all these buns than a splash of tomato sauce. Browse through them and you’ll soon find your new favorite. It’s a national treasure and don’t worry, we won’t tell your mother.
Start with the classic
Puff pastry, check. Sausage meat, check. A pinch of herbs, check. Pickle…um, check. Paul Hollywood’s sausage rolls prove that when it comes to this classic, there truly is no classic.
We’re sure the secret ingredient in many mom’s sausa rolls is ginger and lemongrass. Add shrimp paste and you’ve got all the flavor of tom yum soup in portable pastry form.
Make it a party
You can make the tom yum rolls (see above) for the starter and then bring these Thai curry chicken rolls for the main course. They have the added benefit of being made with gluten-free puff pastry (a handy recipe for all things puff).
When do halloumi and lamb never go together? Never is when. Mix up a bunch of robust Middle Eastern-inspired spices and the flavor you pack into every parcel of perfect baking is positively commendable.
remove the meat
There will be pedants who will say that you can’t have a “sausage” roll without meat. To which we say try one.
These walnut, apple and sage rolls will make you and your vegan friends happy. Shhh now, we’ve already proven that you don’t need a sausage to rock a bun. Come back.
Come on super tasty
“What’s the secret to your sausage rolls?” they will ask.
