Units Scale
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 package sausages, approximately 450 grams
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F (200 C) and line a baking sheet or two with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface or the parchment it's wrapped in, unroll or unfold your pastry sheet. With a pizza cutter or a sharp knife cut each one down the middle, then cut into quarters in the other direction to make eight rectangles.
  3. Remove the casings from your sausages but making a shallow cut in each one and peeling off the casing. Discard the casing, and place each sausage in the middle of a rectangle. Smoosh it into a line down the center of each rectangle. It’s okay to go right to the edge.
  4. Crack your egg into a bowl and beat it with a fork until well combined. You can add a bit of water to thin it out, if you like.
  5. For each rectangle, carefully fold the sides of the puff pastry over the sausage so they overlap. Press the dough together to seal it, then using the fork dipped in your egg mixture, press the tines into the seam. The egg will help act as a glue.
  6. Place the roll seam-side down on your parchment lined baking sheet. If you want smaller sausage rolls, you can cut them in half first, then transfer them to the baking sheet. You may need to use two baking sheets or work in two batches.
  7. With a sharp knife cut 2-3 slits into the top of each roll. Brush each roll with a thin layer of your egg wash. This makes them all shiny and lovely.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow them to cool for as long as you can stand it. At least 10 minutes.


You can add a sprinkling of nigella seeds or sesame seeds if you like. Totally optional.
