How To Make Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls

How To Make Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls

An award-winning way to impress your guests at any party is to make the humble but oh so very tasty home-made puff pastry sausage rolls.

This delicious favourite finger food can be easily frozen in batches and can be cooked from frozen for any unexpected occasions.

Let me show you how to make puff pastry sausage rolls, I know you will be pleasantly surprised.


A bowl, a piping bag*, a wooden spoon, baking tray, pastry brush, and a cup

*Disposable piping bags can be purchased in any Dollar mart / Euro store/ Pound saving shop. Remember to wash any excess food from them before disposing of.


1 x pack of puff pastry rolled sheet, (can be purchased from the fridge area in your local supermarket)

1 x egg

Splash of milk

600g x good quality Pork sausage meat*

1 x onion, finely chopped

1 x red apple finely chopped

1 tbsp mixed herbs

3 tbsp of Tomato puree

*works equally well with other spicy sausages like chorizo or even minced Chicken or Turkey. Adding black pudding to this pork sausage is also a nice alternative. 


Remove puff pastry roll from its packaging and leave in room temp.

In a bowl add the sausage meat, a pinch of salt and pepper, mixed herbs, chopped onion & apple mixing to combine all ingredients.

Separately crack the egg into the cup and add the milk, stirring until the yolk is blended with milk.

Unroll the puff pastry but leave it on its parchment sheet and transfer to the baking tray.

Fill the piping bag with the sausage mix, and then cut the end at the V.

Hold the bag tight at the large opening and gently push the sausage mix through the small hole down the length of the rolled-out pastry sheet in a straight line from top to bottom.

Using your pastry brush dip it into the egg and brush along both sides of the sausage meat mix laid out on the pastry.

Fold over the smaller side of the pastry sheet to cover the meat, and gently roll to seal and cut straight down.

Repeat this process until all the pastry and sausage meat has been used.

Cut the rolls into bite-size pieces and spread them out onto the baking sheet. I tend to get approx. 24 pieces from each batch.

Finally, with the remaining egg, brush over each roll which gives a nice golden colour when baked.

Cooking Times and Temperature

Preheat oven 400° F / 200°C and Gas Mark 6

Place the baking tray in the centre of the oven for 20/25 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and cooked through.

Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Serving Suggestion

Lovely to eat with some red onion marmalade or sweet chilli or works as a wonderful accompaniment to other party food.

  • Hi Olive, 

    Thank you for an easy-to-follow simple cooking post! I love all kinds of home cooking tips. 

    I find myself avoid baking because I usually want to clean up the area as I go. This might not be so easy to accomplish because I feel so many containers and tools are involved in baking… What’re your thoughts on that?

     I am really inexperienced at baking related cooking, but I am excited to try out your recipe 🙂 


    • Hi Jane

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.  There are a lot of recipes that you can try out that do not require a lot of utensils, I find if I wash as I go that this lessens the burden of a having to do a big “clean up” at the end.  

      I hope you do try this recipe and let me know how you get on and if you liked them. 

      Thanks and all the best, Olive

    • Hi Fiona

      Thanks for your message, your children will almost certainly love this recipe and it will not take long for you to make either. Let me know how you get on.

  • Your puff pastry sausage rolls look and sound absolutely delicious! 

    I’ll be going to the store soon, so I plan on getting the correct ingredients. I see that the recipe calls for a piping bag I think those are easy enough to make for myself. 

    I’m allergic to tomatoes and wheat. Do you believe the rolls will be just as tasty as you describe if I use rice flour and no tomatoes? 

    Thank you so much for this recipe!

    • Hi Cathy Allen

      Thank you for your kind comments. Yes you are correct piping bags are easy to make, it sounds like you are not a novice in the kitchen 😉

      You can simply omit the tomato paste, it’s is used to bind but it should work just fine without. 

      I hope you get an opportunity to try this recipe, let me know what you think. 

      All the best, Olive

  • Thank you for this recipe. Cooking has never been my passion but I love when I can find something easy to prepare and that the kids will love. 

    In fact, this is so easy I will be showing them how to make it.  It seems they enjoy the kitchen more than I do. 

    I can do it for supper or for an afternoon snack and even for breakfast. Thanks for a great idea

    • Great idea JJ let the kids make these – as you say they are simple and easy and they will certainly enjoy the process. 

      They are versatile so they can be enjoyed any time of the day or night! 

      Enjoy, Olive
