Chicken and Vegetable Sausage Rolls

For a healthier option, these chicken and vegetable sausage rolls are absolutely delicious! Make a big batch and pop any leftovers in the freezer!

Ok I know this is a big call… but this is my favourite sausage roll recipe at the moment. And you could say that we’re kinda sausage roll connoisseurs in this house! Don’t get me wrong, I love my classic homemade sausage rolls… but there’s just something so good about these chicken and vegetable sausage rolls.

Chicken and Vegetable Sausage Rolls

And you know what? Sausage rolls really are the very best kind of comfort food – especially when the weather is cold! But to be honest, I eat these all year round. Because I’m a big fan of shortcuts, I usually make a huge batch and freeze them in individual freezer bags or containers. It’s seriously the best thing ever when you can just grab a bag out of the freezer and pop them into the oven to reheat.

Because these chicken and vegetable sausage rolls are made with chicken mince, they’re much leaner than traditional pork or beef versions. I also find that they don’t lose as much liquid during the cooking process, which means that the pastry bottoms stay nice and crispy. Mind you, I still recommend that you drain all of the excess liquid from your grated vegetables before adding in the mince – this stops the rolls from ‘stewing’ in the excess liquid while they cook.

By finely grating the vegetables, you can sneak them into these yummy sausage rolls without any kids (or husbands) noticing. I usually go the traditional route and use grated carrot, onions and zucchini, but you could use any vegetables you like. The trick is to grate them nice and tiny so no little eyes can find them!

Chicken and Vegetable Sausage RollsThese make the perfect weekend lunch (especially served with a big squirt of tomato sauce), but they’re also great lunchbox fillers too.

  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce

  • Cut each roll into 3 pieces. Brush lightly with the egg mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or black poppy seeds.
  • Place the sausage rolls onto non-stick baking trays. Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and puffed and the mixture is cooked through.

Notes

*For sausage rolls with crispy bases I find it best to place the sausage rolls directly onto non-stick baking trays. However, if you're worried about your sausage rolls sticking to the baking trays, you can place baking paper down first. Please note that if you do choose to use baking paper, the bottom of your sausage rolls may not become crispy due to the excess liquid that will sit on the baking paper from the sausage rolls as they cook. If this is the case, add fresh baking paper halfway through cooking or drain any liquid off the baking paper and turn the sausage rolls over.

    Hi there, just wondering about the ingredient “sausage mince”. I assume this is low grade beef mince but I just want to check. Thanks!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Alison, yes but it’s more processed than normal mince (you generally buy it in a 500g packet. xx
