How to Make a Quick & Easy Sausage Roll

by Carole Vansickle
  • Overview

    Sausage rolls are great fare for breakfast or dinner. They are hearty and can be served with a light side dish, like a salad, or even alone as a "meal in a bread slice." If you are in a hurry but want to serve a delicious, homemade meal, then a quick and easy sausage roll will quickly become a favorite for the whole family.
 
  • Step 1

    Thaw a package of frozen puff pastry. Get it out about 15 minutes before you start baking. This will allow it to partially thaw, but keep it from getting sticky.
  • Step 2

    Mix the 1/2 cup white breadcrumbs, 1/3 cup milk, 1/2 cup chopped onion, two eggs and 2 cups ground sausage. You can do this in a bowl or in the food processor. Create a thoroughly mixed paste that is uniform in color and texture. Of course, you will still be able to see chunks of onion and some spices, so do not worry about liquefying the mixture.
  • Step 3

    Set the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking pan with tin foil. Spread the partially defrosted puff pastry sheets out on the baking sheet. If necessary, slice the sheets so they are about 6 inches wide.
  • Step 4

    Spoon the sausage mixture into the middle of the strips of puff pastry. Make a fairly thin line---not more than 2 inches wide or 2 inches high at any point. Spread this line all the way down the pastry strip, leaving about 1 inch bare at each end.
  • Step 5

    Fold the pastry strips over the sausage mixture. Press the edges together so you have completely sealed in the sausage. These tubes will bake into your sausage rolls.
  • Step 6

    Bake the sausage rolls for 30 minutes. Keep an eye on them, and pull them out sooner if the puff pastry begins to brown. Serve them with ketchup or other dipping condiment.
