There’s nothing more comforting than Classic British Sausage Rolls.
Now that the Christmas holiday is right around the corner, I must plan my grocery shops to include all the staples to make my treats and appetizers.
If you are looking for savoury finger food for the holidays or any gathering, these are delicious, easy to make and freeze well.
Let me show you how easy this recipe is to make.
British Sausage Rolls: A Hearty Meal or Snack
The best part is they won’t bust your grocery budget and look like you put lots of effort into them.
British Sausage Rolls are easy to make that you won’t ever buy the frozen version from the grocery store.
Staple In Our Household
This sausage rolls recipe always takes me back to the time of year where they were a staple at almost all parties and social gatherings in our family.
Our house is always busy at Christmas and New Year’s, and everyone who visits asks if I’ve made my sausage rolls. I guess that means they like them.
I need to create many finger food recipes, so there is always something ready for our guests to snack on.
There’s never a dull moment in our household.
Memories Of British Sausage Rolls
Memories of sausage rolls hot out of the oven date back to when I was a young child watching my mum and dad in the kitchen.
My dad’s task was always carving the turkey and making the appetizers, especially for our New Year’s bash (Hogmanay).
I always remember dad making these little bite-size rolls that seem to disappear as soon as they were on the table.
He was so precise in how the sausage rolls had to look and taste, and now I’m the same way.
Continuing The Christmas Tradition
I make these flaky sausage rolls but family-size portions to eat throughout the year, but I add just a bit of heat to give an extra boost for my holiday recipe.
Sometimes I make a puff pastry as my dad did, but there’s nothing wrong with buying frozen puff pastry from the grocery store if you don’t have the time.
It’s inexpensive and will save you time, which many of us don’t have come November and December.
These appetizers are ideal for making ahead and freezing once cooked.
The best part about these little gems is that you will always have something quick to place on a baking sheet to re-heat for guests to enjoy.
