Homemade Sausage Rolls are always a crowd pleaser and these ones use tomato relish and store bought pastry to make them both easy, and delicious.Jump to Recipe
We always find an occasion for sausage rolls. For morning tea, with salad for lunch, or afternoon tea, and the kids even love them for dinner. Plus they go down very well at a picnic or pot luck. Yep we are Sausage Roll lovers! I enjoy making my own filling and adding onion and carrot for sweetness and that lovely tomato relish for great depth and flavour. Yum!
This is a simple recipe, I use flaky puff pastry, onion, carrot, tomato relish, beef mince, sausage meat and eggs. I also brush the sausage rolls with an egg and milk mix and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
How to make Sausage Rolls:
First we make the filling by combining the meats, grated carrot, relish, 1 egg, chopped onion and seasoning. I like to then mix it in with my hands to incorporate it nicely but you can mix well with a wooden spoon if you like.
Mix your milk and remaining egg together in a small bowl with a fork.
Then take the thawed pastry and cut it in half horizontally. Split the mixture into 8 so that we have equal amounts for all the pastry. Spoon 1/8 of the mix onto your pastry and make into an even log shape. Brush one edge with the milk and egg mix. and using your hands, roll up.
Finishing with the seam side down. Cut into 4 (or 6) pieces.
Transfer to your baking tray. Once you are all finished, brush with the egg and milk mix and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Then into the oven for 25- 30 mins. Serve with extra Anathoth Farm Tomato Relish on the side for dipping.
Common questions about Sausage Rolls:
Can I use other meats? You can use pork or chicken mince instead of beef mince. You can also use 100% mince instead of mince and sausage meat mixture, however it will be a different more crumbly texture.
What else can I add? Try adding Italian herbs, or using zuchinni instead of carrot, or a combination of both.
Alternatives to Tomato Relish? Most chutneys or relishes will work. Or sweet chilli sauce or even BBQ sauce.

Place one sheet of pastry on a clean bench, cut the pastry sheet half horizontally.
Split your sausage filling into 8. Spoon 1/8 of the mix along the middle of your pastry horizontally. Shape it into an even sausage shape. Brush one edge with a little milk and egg mix. Now roll the sausage roll up. Finishing with the seam side down. Cut into 4 (or 6) pieces.
