Think…

  • crispy pastry on the outside

All these delicious bites need is a big squirt of tomato sauce on top (sorry… I’m an Aussie girl… give me ALL the tomato sauce!).

Now I know that lots of people don’t like making their own sausage rolls because they can’t get them crispy enough. WELL!! Fear not!! The trick is to strain out ALL of the excess liquid from the grated carrot and zucchini. And I really do mean ALL of the excess liquid. This seriously makes such a huge difference to your sausage rolls… as in…. soggy versus crispy! I like to put the grated veggies into a strainer, squeeze out as much liquid as I can with my hands and then grab some paper towel and squeeze out the rest. Trust me on this one. Strain. Squeeze. Squeeeeeze!!!

And while we’re talking all things sausage rolls, let me tell you about my little toddler and this recipe! He peels off every single teensy, tiny flake of pastry and will only eat the filling. I mean, come on!!! Who on earth doesn’t like crispy pastry!? That’s toddlers for you!! (PS. I’m only half complaining because I secretly enjoy eating all of his leftover pastry).

Ingredients

  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 brown onion, chopped finely
  • 500 g sausage mince
  • 500 g pork mince
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tbs tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 sheets puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • sesame seeds or black poppy seeds, to sprinkle

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees celsius (or 210 degrees if using fan-forced).

  2. Grate carrot and zucchini and remove any excess liquid through a strainer (see note).

  3. Place the drained carrot and zucchini into a bowl.
  4. Add the chopped onion, sausage mince, pork mince, garlic, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce to the bowl. Mix together until well combined.

  5. Cut one sheet of defrosted puff pastry in half.
  6. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the egg mixture down one long side of each pastry half.
  7. Place 1/12th of the sausage mixture in a long thin line down the opposite side.

  8. Roll into a long thin roll making sure that the joined pastry seam is facing down. 

  9. Cut each roll into 3 pieces. Brush lightly with the egg mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or black poppy seeds.

  10. Place the sausage rolls onto non-stick baking trays.
  11. Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and puffed and the mixture is cooked through.

Recipe Notes

To ensure crispy sausage rolls, make sure that you strain out ALL of the excess liquid from the grated carrot and zucchini. I like to put the grated veggies into a strainer, squeeze out as much liquid as I can with my hands and then grab some paper towel and squeeze out the rest.

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.

  2. Hadia says:

    Lucy, these are my weakness! I have chosen the wrong time to visit your blog and read your post. I am on diet and these sausage rolls are to die for. Utterly delicious!!

    I love making sausage rolls and freezing them. Great to pull out whenever we need a snack or doing last minute entertaining!

  4. Zadada and Blake are huge sausage roll fans. Lucy I know if they see this post of yours they’ll be all puppy dog eyes at me to make them. Great job! xx

  5. I make veggie sausage rolls which I know sounds a paradox… they’re filled with veggies but taste like meat! Yours look absolutely delicious and marvellously meaty. I might have to make a batch. We like to keep them in the freezer for a rainy day (and now that Autumn is here, I’m sure there’ll be plenty of those!)

  6. My mum whips these up easily and I have never attempted them, one day right? x

  7. I’ve never used worchestershire sauce in sausage rolls before, will have to try that out. Thanks for sharing.x

  19. Shari says:

    Good minds think alike – I just published my recipe for ‘hidden veggie’ sausage rolls. These look delicious and I am also keen to try the MKR version of pork, fennel and apple {sounds good right?}

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      I know! They sound so good, don’t they!

  20. Sally says:

  21. Sujin Laird says:

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Fantastic!!!

  22. Bron says:

    Quick question – do I need to add seasoning to the mix?! Xx

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      You absolutely can if you like, but it’s not necessary! It will give it a nice flavour punch though πŸ™‚

  23. Vika says:

    Just made those for my girl’s 3rd party! Put some to freeze too. Used minced turkey and beef /honey sausages and some pork sausages (what had at home) and they are PERFECT! Thank you. I do usually find helpful if people comment everything in g. or cups as it’s hard to guess. However all was great!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Vika, thank you so much for your lovely comment and feedback. So glad they were a hit at your daughters birthday! xx

  24. Tanya says:

    How many days will they keep in the fridge if I don’t want to freeze them. Thanks

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Tanya, it will depend on the use by date of your meat, but if it has a long date, I’d recommend still using them up within 3-4 days. πŸ™‚

  25. Carina Pullen says:

    I love your blog and your thermomix recipes πŸ™‚ I just tried making these sausage rolls though, and found that the soggy bottom issue didn’t fix πŸ™ I baked them 25 mins on baking paper, then another 15 mins on just a grill (to try and get rid of the sogginess) and then another 15 mins turned over, and they were still so soggy the bottoms were just raw dough still. Any idea what I’m doing wrong or how I can fix it? thanks!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Carina, generally the leaner the meat, the less soggy they’ll be. Also really squeezing out ALL the liquid from the veggies makes a massive difference. Good luck!! xx

  26. marci says:

    My gran always make sausage rolls with some really thinly grated apple in them and they are amazing! I would love to add it to this recipe to see how good it tastes! I love the idea of the poppy seeds on top as well…yum!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      That’s a brilliant idea!!
