Sausage rolls

Shearing Time Sausage Rolls

Serves 20 sausage rolls


  • 500 g sausage mince
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp cumin ground
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp nigella seeds or sesame seeds, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line two large baking trays with oven proof baking paper.   

  2. In a large bowl combine sausage mince, sauces, cumin, salt and pepper.

  3. Cut each piece of pastry in half.  Place a strip (like a long sausage) of mince along the centre of each pastry piece. Roll to enclose with the seam underneath. 

  4. Cut the sausage rolls into required lengths using a sharp knife and place on baking trays.  Combine the egg and milk and whisk together.  Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the rolls with egg and milk mixture.  Top the rolls with a sprinkle of seeds, if using. 

  5. Bake for around 25 minutes or until golden and cooked through.  Serve warm with plenty of tomato sauce.
