These savory sausage rolls are the British version of pigs in a blanket. Don’t be fooled by the name though, British sausage is not the same as Italian sausage. Itis minced pork with seasoning and bread crumbs. The bread crumbs hold onto the fat and keep the sausage juicy.
I find the seasoning of these reminisate to a sausage stuffing found at Thanksgiving time.
In the sausage you can either use sauteed onions or onion powder depending on the texture you want.
Some popular dipping sauces are ketchup or brown gravy.
This recipe makes 8 sausage rolls that are 2″ thick.
Homemade British Sausage Rolls
Savory British style sausage wrapped in flaky puff pastry.
Mix the sausage
Combine together the pork, seasoning, bread crumbs, salt and pepper, ensuring not to overmix.You can use the mixture right away or place in the fridge for 30 minutes to overnight.
Roll out the puff pastry
Lightly flour your work surface and roll out the puff pastry to 18" x 12 ".
Shape the sausage roll
Form the sausage into a long cylinder and place on the puff pastry. Roll the sausage in the puff pastry to form a log, wetting the end furthest from you to ensure it sticks.
Cut the sausage rolls
Cut the roll into 8 equal pieces around 2" each.
Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill the puff pastry and preheat your oven to 375.
Bake the sausge rolls
If you want your sausage rolls to be shiny, add an egg wash (one egg beat with a teaspoon of water) to the pastry.
Bake for 40 minutes on 375 or until the internal temperature is 165.
