Perfect food for every occasion
A pasty or dumpling is a great choice. They are rich in flavor and have a rich, savory filling. This concept has been perfected by the Brits with their famous sausage rolls.
These simple treats are loaded with sausage and perfectly complement the buttery dough. There are many variations of the dough, but the easiest way to make them at your home is to use frozen pastry dough sheets. This iconic recipe is easy to prepare.
Makes 16 rolls
20m prep time
30m cook time
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 lb pork sausage, crumbled
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and black pepper to taste
1 (1 lb) box frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400˚F. Heat oil over medium and add sausage. Cook until browned. Remove from heat and add Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, Tabasco sauce, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Carefully unroll puff pastry. Cut each sheet in 2 lengthwise. Brush some egg along the edges of each piece. Place some filling into each rectangle of dough. Fold over one long side and then crimp that side with edges of fork.
Cut each sausage roll log into 4 pieces. Clean brush and use it to apply some milk to each sausage roll. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until tops of rolls are golden brown.
