Mouthwatering Homemade Sausage Rolls

Kim Chartres

There’s something special about being able to buy homemade sausage rolls, pies and pasties from a bakery. They do taste better than bulk manufactured ones, plus creative cooks can experiment with flavours to come up with something sensational. That’s exactly what this recipe is; a very, cleaver soul has put together this winning combination of flavours to create mouthwatering homemade sausage rolls.



1 packet of puff pastry

1 packet of sausage mince (aka meatloaf sausage mixture)

1 egg

1 medium sized onion

1 granny smith apple (specifically granny smith)


  1. Turn on the oven and set it to 180 degrees.
  2. Place puff pastry sheets on a bench to defrost and slice in half while frozen.
  3. Peel onion and apple. Dice finely.
  4. Place onion and apple into large mixing bowl with sausage mince and egg. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Now the mixture is ready to position onto the pastry. Make thin rows vertically down the centre of the pastry.
  6. Take one side of the pastry and fold it over the mixture. Press down to reduce air inside. Repeat with the other side.
  7. Pinch the ends together to secure mixture inside pastry package.
  8. Slice shallow lines with a knife horizontally along pastry shaft. This should create breathing holes for cooking.
  9. Place each sausage roll on greased proof paper on a flat baking tray. Cook for approximately 20-30 minutes until golden brown.

Serving tip: Best served with mash potatoes, veggies and gravy for a meal, or chutney/tomato sauce for a snack. Recipe can also be frozen.
