Appetizer sausage rolls feature a meaty mixture stuffed inside buttery soft puff pastry. An easy crowd-pleasing handheld party appetizer!

Ingredients:

You won’t need much to make these easy sausage rolls. Here’s a list of ingredients for you. You’ll find the exact measurements in the recipe card below. 

  • Puff pastry – Store-bought puff pastry dough. Crescent roll dough will also do the trick. 
  • Pork sausage – Feel free to use turkey sausage instead. 
  • Eggs
  • Italian breadcrumbs – You could use plain breadcrumbs instead and season them yourself (or not). I do not recommend using Panko breadcrumbs here. 
  • Herbs – I used fresh parsley and fresh thyme. You can use dried herbs here but fresh is always best. 
  • Garlic – Garlic powder will also do the trick. 
  • Onion powder
  • Water
Ingredients

Supplies:

Here’s a kitchen inventory list for you. Make sure you have the following supplies before you get started. 

  1. Baking sheet 
  2. Parchment paper
  3. Mixing bowl
  4. Measuring cups and spoons 
  5. Mixing spoon or spatula
  6. Rolling pin 
  7. Knife  
  8. Cooking brush 
Meat mixture

Instructions:

Make the filling. In a large bowl, mix together the sausage, 1 egg, breadcrumbs, parsley, thyme, garlic, and onion powder until well incorporated. 

Meat mixture in pastry dough

Prepare the dough. On a clean non-stick flat surface, roll the puff pastry dough out a bit so that it is slightly thinner than before. Cut each sheet of dough into 3 long rectangles (you should end up with 6 rectangles total). If your dough was originally folded in the package, you can just cut along the fold lines.

Pastry rolls cut into bite-size pieces

Fill the pastry dough. Place small spoonfuls of the sausage mixture in the center of the puff pastry sheets, leaving an inch of pastry on either side. Pack it together to make one long string of sausage filling Bring the ends of the dough together and use a fork to pinch and seal the sausage inside of the dough. 

Pastry rolls cut into bite-size pieces

Slice. Cut each sausage-filled dough tube into 2-inch slices with a sharp knife. Arrange the sausage rolls on the prepared baking tray lined with parchment paper with about an inch of space between each. 

Freezer Recipe

Can I make this ahead of time and freeze it?

Totally! Follow the recipe up until the point that the sausage rolls are sliced. Before brushing them with egg wash, arrange them on a baking sheet and pop the baking sheet in the freezer for a couple of hours to firm up. Once firm, seal them in a freezer bag and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

When you are ready to enjoy, arrange the frozen sausage rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, brush them with egg wash just as you normally would, and bake at 425°F for 25 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. 

Brushed with butter

Add an egg wash. Whisk together the second egg and the water and brush the mixture over the top of the sausage rolls. 

Bake. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and the tops of the sausage rolls are golden brown.
