  • 1 pound sausage of your choice
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs, or oats
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 pound puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 egg beaten + 1 tablespoon water


  • Preheat oven to 425F
  • If sausage is in casing, remove from casings into a bowl.
  • Add bread crumbs and mustard to the sausage.
  • Roll out puff pastry until 1/4" thick rectangle roughly 12" by 18". Cut it in half to have two 6" by 18" strips.
  • Divide the meat in half and make a log down the centre of the pastry. (This is where its very helpful have watched the video).
  • Brush the egg down the seam where you cut so it gets a good inch of egg wash on each piece of pastry.  
  • Now fold the ugly side of the pastry (the uncut) over the meat, then the egg wash side. make sure its overlapping so it doesn't bust out. Gently press it to make sure it seals and flatten it some.
  • Flip it seam side down onto a parchment lined tray and gently press to make it less round more oval.
  • Cut to desired size, 1 inch for sausage roll bites of 3-4 inches for full size.
  • Brush with remaining egg wash and if desired, sprinkle poppy or sesame seeds on top.
  • Spread rolls out so they have space to bake.
  • Bake 15- 20 minutes, or until puffy and browned.
  • There will be fat/butter on the tray but don't worry about it. Let cool 5-10 minutes on the tray, then transfer to cooling racks. Store in fridge, eat cold or heated up!



These freeze well, my husband took them when he worked out of town and would keep in freezer and heat up in microwave on coffee break. We prefer the toaster oven at home, but use what you have!

  1. The instructions were super easy to follow and the recommendation to use something like everything by the bagel season was really good. My dad and husband devoured them. I even liked them and I’m not typically a fan of anything with puff pastry.

  2. 10/10. Will definitely make again. I cheated and used store bought puff pastry. My tiny family of four ate them all in less than two days. Easy Peary to make.

  3. I have always been super intimidated by anything that has the word ‘Pastry’ in it. I make these with venison and freeze them for my kiddos lunches. So not intimidating at all!!!

  4. Killer recipe for Homegrown Sausage! Top with Everything Bagle Seasoning ?!
    This is going to easily become a frequent recipe.

  5. These are amazing! I’ve only made them once, with Kate’s puff pastry recipe and I can’t wait to make again!!

  6. This is the first sausage roll recipe i have made and it was a hit. With all our own beef and pork on the farm I’m looking forward to keeping these in constant rotation.

  7. Oh my goodness, these are fantastic! They freeze well when cooked which is great too. The pastry was easy and it so great to have some in the freezer to pull out. This is a definite keeper recipe!!!
