Sensational Sausage Rolls

  • Prep time: 45 minutes
  • Cook time: 35 minutes
  • Total time: 20 minutes
  • Serves: 70 sausage rolls



  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup allergy free margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 9 tablespoons cold water

Sausage filling

  • 400 grams ground pork
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 3/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon mustard, (optional)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Prepare the pastry

  • 1)

    In a large bowl combine the flour, salt, vegetable shortening and allergy free margarine.

  • 2)

    Use a fork to mash the ingredients together. You’ll know when your finished because there’ll be no large lumps and the mixture looks like bread crumbs, as seen in first picture above.

  • 3)

    Add in the cold water and mix with your hands until the dough forms a ball (picture 2). If it’s still a bit crumbly add a couple more tablespoons of cold water.

  • 4)

    Cover the dough ball with a damp cloth and place the bowl into the fridge to wait while you prepare the sausage roll filling.

Sausage filling and rolling

  • 1)

    Preheat oven to 375 F.

  • 2)

    In a large bowl combine all the ingredients listed for the filling and fold together until evenly mixed (picture 4). Try not to overmix the filling to keep the texture from going tough.

  • 3)

    Get your pastry out of the fridge, break into two. Roll out one of the halfs using a floured rolling pin onto parchment paper until it’s a little thinner than a quarter of an inch thick.

  • 4)

    Place your sausage mixture onto the rolled pastry one hand full at a time and shape into an inch high log (picture 5) going all the way to the top and bottom edge of the pastry.

  • 5)

    Cut the pastry lengthwise around the sausage then roll the pastry around the sausage and allow the pastry to double up by about a half inch to secure it. Give the pastry logs a gentle squeeze to make sure the pastry is nice and snug around the sausage. (picture 5)

  • 6)

    Create the individual rolls by cutting the rolls off the log about an inch wide (picture 6). Place them onto a parchment or silicone lined baking tray (picture 7).

  • 7)

    Continue this process until all the pastry and sausage are used up and on the baking trays.

  • 8)

    Place the sausage rolls into the preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes. The pastry should be a little golden and the filling cooked through.

  • 9)

    Serve with ketchup and enjoy!


If you don’t have allergies to dairy products there are a ton of options for premade puff pastry that you could use instead of making your own.

If you like the look of your sausage rolls being golden brown on top you can paint the top of the rolls with olive oil ahead of baking.

These little rolls keep great in a freezer back for a month and reheat to perfection in the oven no problem.
