Key Ingredients in Sausage Rolls:

Sausage – my favorite variety for this easy sausage roll recipe is spicy Italian sausage. You can also use plain ground sausage. 

Puff pastry – store-bought puff pastry for simplicity

Seasonings and herbs – garlic powder, red pepper flakes, onion powder, thyme, salt and pepper and fresh parsley.

Parmesan – freshly grated parmesan cheese will be added into the sausage filling

Egg – for binding the sausage mixture and one for brushing the puff pastry

Breadcrumbs– are added to the filling to keep the mixture moist

Honey Mustard – I use an easy homemade honey mustard by combining mayo, dijon, poppyseeds, honey and apple cider vinegar.

How to Make This Easy Sausage Roll Recipe:

Step 1: Make the sausage mixture by combining all filling ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Set aside. Slightly roll out the puff pastry sheets on a floured surface so it gets thinned out a little more. Cut the puff pastry into three long rectangles (I just slice them at the seams).

Step 2: Create sausage logs by rolling portions with your hands and line them in the center of the puff pastry rectangles, from end to end. Fold over the excess puff pastry and press closed, crimping with a fork to seal in the sausage. Divide into 6 equal pieces per log, about 2″ pieces. Diagonally slice the tops 2-3 times with a knife to vent.

Step 3: Place sausage rolls on a baking sheet two inches apart and spread the tops of each sausage roll with egg wash. Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until  the sausage rolls are golden brown and crispy. While they bake, mix together the honey mustard in a small bowl for dipping.

How to Reheat Sausage Rolls:

I love making large batches of this easy sausage roll recipe, especially in the fall. We pop them in the freezer to store and reheat them on football game days or for gatherings at our home.

To reheat them, I simply allow them to defrost about 15 minutes on the counter and pop them into the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or air fryer at 350 degrees for 4-5 minutes until they are flaky and crispy again.

    January 6, 2024 at 9:39 pm Delicous! Made these this afternoon. Instead of Italian sausage, I used spicy breakfast sausage, as I was planning on using these as breakfasts. They are wonderful. Even made the honey mustard sauce. I did a combo of dijon, stone ground mustard and brown mustard, and upped the cayenne, because I like spicy. It's yummy. Think it would also make a great salad dressing.
