Christmas Sausage Rolls

Christmas Sausage Rolls

Try making your sausages rolls at home, they are delicious and always a winner. You can even make up a big batch, freeze raw and cook from frozen…


  • Mix sausage meat with the marmalade and either load into a piping bag or divide into three equal portions
  • Prepare a lightly floured board. Roll the pastry into a rectangle 45cm x 30cm. Turn the pastry over so the floured side is on the top (this will improve the browning on the top of the finished product)
  • Divide the pastry into three strips 30cm x 15cm
  • Pipe the sausage meat down the middle of each strip of pastry. Alternatively roll the sausage meat with your hands and place down the strip of pastry.
  • Using a pastry brush dampen the right-hand edge of the pastry with water; then fold the pastry and lightly press the two edges together.
  • Using the back of a table knife knock the edges of the pastry together the two layers of pastry must stick together to avoid them popping open in the oven.
  • Glaze the sausage roll with egg yolk
  • Cut the sausage rolls into portions. 5cm long sausage rolls will make 18
  • Using scissors snip the top of each sausage roll twice
  • Transfer to a baking tray lined with baking parchment
  • Bake in the oven at 220c (215c fan) Gas Mark 7 until golden brown and crispy, 14 to 15 minutes. To cook from frozen add 5 minutes to the cooking time.
  • Enjoy with a glass of your favourite tipple!
