Cheat’s Sausage Rolls.

Quick Sausage Rolls

The thing about parties, at least in my house, is that they are just not the same without a plate of sausage rolls. Warm or cold, these little morsels of meat and pastry delights are the first thing I aim for on the buffet table, and the last thing I want to leave. One problem is that the shop-bought ones can be mean and nasty – an insult to the beauty that is this party treat. The alternative, mixing this and butter flaking pastry that, can be daunting and I am more than happy to cook something that has the homemade flavour without the chef effort. So here it is, the homemade cheat’s sausage roll.


  • 1 pkt very good butter puff pastry
  • 2 butcher made sausages (the choice of sausage is in your hands!)
  • 1 beaten egg for brushing to seal and coat the finished rolls.



  1. Pre heat the oven to 180c
  2. Roll out the pastry. 
  3. Remove the sausages from their skin, and roll the sausage meat thin enough for that sausage roll bite size you like.
  4. Lay the rolled meat onto the pastry and using the egg wet the edges and roll the pastry over covering the sausage meat. Seal and cut into sausage roll bites.  Snip the tops of the sausage rolls and brush with the beaten egg.  Repeat until you have used all the pastry and sausage and bake in the oven until nice and golden

About Cooking At Zero Degrees

This is a blog (it also works on an ipad and now has a Facebook page) about what we eat at home. Starters, mains, sauces, side dishes, cocktails and links to local shops. It’s all here. Food is fun, it should be fun to make and fun to eat. For some people making a meal is a chore. If it is then don’t do it; but please, it’s better to eat something, anything, that you make at home from scratch, because prepared, packaged supermarket dinners and food have about as much flavour as the plastic or cardboard package they come in. Food cultivation and husbandry is not just a moral argument. Eggs that don’t come from battery hens do taste better, cattle properly reared have more flavour - and just think about it: at its most simple, if they’re not being pumped full of chemicals then you’re not being pumped full of chemicals. How good is that? If you can buy local, use your neighbourhood shops, you will miss them when they are gone. Most of all, have fun making a meal of it! Oh, and why at zero degrees? Because that’s where we live – in Greenwich, London.
