Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls

A few months ago, my Mom sent me a recipe for Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls and insisted that I needed to try them.  The recipe had been given to her by a friend, and they claimed that they were the best Sausage Rolls ever!  Okay thanks, I’ll add it to the list of things that I need to make…and then I forgot about it.  Well remember that dinner party that my Mom through while I was in Idaho?  Guess what one of the appetizers was?Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls | cookingwithcurls.com | #partyfoods #appetizers

Yep, these Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls, and boy am I glad that they were. They are amazing!!  They are incredibly flavorful, and still super simple to make.  So when I started planning my Harry Potter Party, I knew that they needed to be on the menu. 🙂

No, they are not in any of the Harry Potter books or movies, but they are a British staple.  They were traditionally made a bit larger and served as a meal, but also work perfectly as a bite sized appetizer.

Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees and lining two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Next, beat an egg in a large bowl until frothy…..

Store leftover Sausage Rolls in the refrigerator or place in the freezer until needed.  Reheat in the microwave or in a hot oven.

The additional seasonings and breadcrumbs make a huge difference.  The flavor is much more intense, which I really like.  I was also able to find a high quality MSG-free pork sausage at the Whole Foods Market that just opened here in town, and it is not greasy at all.  I like that part the best. 😉

You may remember my previous pork Sausage Rolls in puff pastry…..

These ones are a bit larger and folded over into rectangles.  This process would work with this sausage filling recipe as well.

I have also made Turkey Sausage Rolls in Pie Crust…..

I think I need to try this sausage filling wrapped in pie crust next, and see how they turn out.  Can you tell how much I love Sausage Rolls?

      Haha, I didn’t even know that you had a new name Diane! I haven’t been linking up to very many parties over the past 3 weeks. Between vacation, no internet, and getting ready for the Harry Potter Party, I haven’t had the time. I will be there!!:)

    Hi! These look so delicious! I’m making them for my son’s birthday this weekend and I wanted to make sure I’m reading the instructions right and that you don’t cook the sausage before baking. I’m afraid they would be too greasy if I don’t.

    • says

      Thank you Melanie. No, you do not cook the sausage before hand. I used sausage from a Whole Foods Grocery store, and it wasn’t greasy at all. If it is, you could always place them on a wire cooling rack when they first come out of the oven to let the grease drain off. I have never tried cooking the sausage first, if it you do let me know how it turns out. 🙂

    Omg, I have been looking for this recipe and finally found it, thanks to you. Made these for a bridal shower and they were a huge hit.

  3. Steffi says

    i just made these but used Italian sausage meat and they turned out amazing. That first batch is almost gone while the second batch is still in the oven. I will be making these again for sure!!!

  4. Janice Courtman says

    Hi these look yummy just wondering if they can be assembled ahead of time, then baked when


  5. Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes says

    I think these would make great little bites before Easter dinner! Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

    Hello! These look delectable! I had a quick question about the ingredients. I found another recipe that uses crescent roll dough and adds cream cheese into the mix. I would rather use puff pastry and make them like you do but wanted to ask some cheesiness as well. Do you think adding cream cheese would taste good or do you recommend another cheese?

      Thank you Alyssa. I can’t eat dairy so I am the wrong person to ask, LOL I grew up eating traditional sausage rolls and they do not have any type of cheese mixed in. Sorry, I wish I could help. 🙂

  7. Sandi says

    Hi Lisa,
    I am going to try these but I’m wondering if you used plain breadcrumbs or seasoned. Also, can I prep them the day ahead and just cook them the next day?

  8. Marjorie Holste says

    Hi Lisa, I just made the sausage rolls, some small and some bigger for my husband. I am an Australian and miss sausage rolls, meat pies, etc. your recipe is delicious 😊 I will make these over and over. I did dip them in ketchup as that is the Australian thing to do. Thank you for making my day💕
