Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Baking - All ovens vary slightly, however, you will know that your sausage rolls are cooked when they are golden on top and a knife pressed into the middle of the filling comes out very hot. Given they are bite-size, they don't take long to cook.
Serving - Traditionally sausage rolls are served with tomato or BBQ sauce (think easy party food!) You can always add a side salad if you would like to make it into a full meal.
Storing - Sausage rolls are best consumed immediately (once slightly cooled, of course!) If you have any leftovers, store them in the fridge for up to 2 days and reheat in the microwave, oven or air fryer. They can also be consumed chilled in lunch boxes.
Freezing - Sausage rolls can be frozen either cooked or uncooked.
If freezing uncooked - prepare the sausage rolls up to the stage of adding the milk. Freeze in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap for up to 3 months. Cook from frozen until heated through.
If freezing cooked sausage rolls - place into an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat from frozen or defrosted until cooked through.
