The BEST Homemade Sausage Rolls

The BEST Homemade Sausage Rolls Recipe

Few things are better than homemade sausage rolls straight out of the oven, and today I bring you my recipe for the BEST Homemade Sausage Rolls. These pork and fennel sausage rolls are such a crowd-pleaser! They are perfect for picnics, afternoon teas and lunch boxes, and are always a favourite at parties. They are so easy to make, and unlike the store-bought variety, you’ll know these are filled with wholesome goodness. Add some grated veggies if you like, or enjoy as they are—these sausage rolls will transport you to your favourite bakery.

Can you make The BEST Homemade Sausage Rolls ahead of time?

Yes, refrigerate assembled sausage rolls for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 2 months. Assemble the sausage rolls as per the recipe up to step 6 (do not brush with egg wash or sprinkle with seasonings). Store in an air-tight container or reusable sandwich bag with baking paper between the layers to stop them from sticking. Thaw completely in the fridge overnight before cooking, or if cooking from frozen, add 15 minutes to the cooking time. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with seasonings before baking.

Are The BEST Homemade Sausage Rolls suitable for leftovers?

Refrigerate cooked sausage rolls for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or eat cold (puff pastry will soften if reheated).

Can vegetables be added to The BEST Homemade Sausage Rolls?

Yes! 2/3 cup of finely grated onion, carrot or zucchini works well in this recipe. The vegetables add moisture and even more flavour.

The BEST Homemade Sausage Rolls Recipe

The BEST Homemade Sausage Rolls

  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 4 (makes 12 small rolls) 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale

Filling

  • 500 g pork mince/ground pork (substitute with minced/ground chicken, beef or lamb)
  • 1 tsp garlic, freshly minced
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, whisked (reserve one tablespoon to brush over pastry)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds

Pastry

  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 tsp white sesame seeds, optional
  • 1/2 tsp black sesame seeds, optional
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds, optional
  • Ketchup or tomato chutney, to serve

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F (all oven types).
  2. In a large bowl, use your hands to combine the filling ingredients (taking care to reserve 1 tbsp of the whisked egg for brushing the pastry later). Divide into four portions.
  3. Cut the thawed puff pastry sheets in half, straight down the middle (you will have four halves).
  4. Place a portion of filling in the centre of each puff pastry half and using your hands, shape the filling into a large sausage shape lengthways.
  5. Roll the pastry into a long log, ensuring the pastry is seam-side down. Cut each log into six equal lengths.
  6. Place the sausage rolls seam-side down on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  7. Brush each sausage roll with the reserved whisked egg. Sprinkle each roll with sesame seeds, salt and fennel seeds (if using).
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. If you have more than one tray in the oven, swap the trays halfway through cooking.
  9. Serve with ketchup or tomato chutney.

  1. These are soooo good! Our kids love these in lunch boxes

  2. I love your new website, well done. The feature to increase portions is great!
    I always end up cutting these yummy sausage rolls into 16 pieces and I wanted to ask, do you still think 25 mins cook time for 16 smaller pieces? Or less? Thank you 😊

    • Thank you so much for the lovely message – It really does mean so much to me! 😍 I also love cutting them up into 16 pieces. It’s the pastry I find needs the time to turn a crisp, golden brown. Start with 20 and then go an extra 5 mins if the bases of the sausage rolls aren’t beautifully crisp. You’ll find filling stays deliciously moist even keeping the cooking time the same. x

  3. These are always a crowd pleaser – especially my crowd. Even my fussy ones love these sausage rolls and that is quite the impressive feat! They freeze so well too, makes is great to always have a batch on hand.

    • So wonderful to hear! Thank you so much for taking the time to write and your support – Means more to me than I can tell you! Nic x

  4. I make these Sausage Rolls for every event, party, catch up and they are always the crowd favourite.

    • Haha I do the same! I am making them again this weekend! 😍 So glad they are a hit Lisa! Nic x
