I love whipping up these Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls when I need a quick, satisfying meal. They’re simple: flaky pastry filled with delicious sausage.

The recipe is straightforward—few ingredients, easy steps, big flavor. It’s perfect whether you’re a seasoned cook or a newbie.

These sausage rolls are quick to make and sized just right for one. They hit the spot every time.

Let’s get started!

🌟 Recipe Tips

  • The taste of the sausage roll really depends on the sausage meat. I go for high-quality sausage with a nice balance of fat and meat. Sometimes, I even use vegetarian sausages for a change.
  • If you’re using frozen puff pastry, ensure it’s thawed but still cold. If it gets too warm, the pastry won’t be as flaky.
  • Even though the sausage is usually seasoned, I like to add a little something extra—maybe some herbs, garlic powder, or smoked paprika.
  • I sometimes mix a little mayo and ketchup into the sausage meat. It keeps it moist and adds flavor, but I’m careful not to overdo it.

🥘 Ingredients & Substitutes

2 puff pastry slices, sausages, ketchup, mayonnaise and seeds mix on a wooden surface.
  • Puff Pastry: This is essential for the flaky, buttery base. If I don’t have it, I’ll use croissant dough or phyllo dough, though phyllo is a bit trickier since it needs butter between layers.
  • Mayonnaise: It makes the filling creamy and helps hold everything together. If I’m out or just not a fan, I’ll swap in Greek yogurt or sour cream for a tangy kick.
  • Ketchup: Adds a nice sweet and tangy touch to the savory sausage. If I need a substitute, I go for BBQ sauce or any tomato-based sauce for a similar flavor boost.
  • Sausages: They’re the main event. If I need a change, I’ll use ground pork or beef with some herbs and spices. For a vegetarian twist, I’ll use seasoned tofu or a plant-based sausage.
  • Seeds Mix: This adds crunch and nuttiness. No seed mix? No problem—I’ll use sesame or poppy seeds alone, or even chopped nuts like almonds or pecans for a similar effect.

👩‍🍳 Directions

To make these sausage rolls, I start by heating the oven to 350°F (175°C).

Then, I roll out the dough and spread a bit of ketchup and mayonnaise on it. After that, I place the sausage on top and roll it all up in the dough.

Quick Note: It’s okay if some sauce leaks out while I’m rolling; I just use it to coat the rolls all over.

Next, I grease a baking tray with some oil, place the rolls on it, and sprinkle them with seeds for some extra crunch and flavor.

I bake them for about 25 minutes until they’re nicely browned. I like serving them warm with a green salad on the side for a complete meal.

🍴 How to Double the Recipe:

Doubling the recipe for these puff pastry sausage rolls is easy and great when I’m serving more people or want leftovers. I just double the ingredients and make twice as many rolls. Keep in mind that you should watch the oven space, though, and sometimes bake in batches.

I keep the oven temperature and time the same and just look for that golden-brown finish to make sure they’re perfect.

🍽️ Servings

Casual Tea-Time Delight

I like to pair these rolls with homemade lightly salted potato chips and a cucumber dill salad. It’s a fresh mix that’s perfect for an afternoon tea or a casual get-together.

Cozy Movie Night In

For movie nights, I serve these with honey mustard, BBQ sauce, and ranch dips, along with sweet potato fries. It’s a comfy, cinema-style snack that everyone loves.

Elegant Appetizer Spread

When I’m looking to impress, I add these sausage rolls to a cheese platter with a variety of cheeses, grapes, and crackers. It’s great for formal gatherings and really dresses up the table.

Quick Lunch Box Addition

For a packed lunch, I add carrot and celery sticks with hummus and a small fruit salad. It’s a balanced, tasty lunch that’s easy to take to work or school.

🍽️ Variations

Spicy Chorizo and Pepper Jack Rolls

Switch out regular sausages for spicy chorizo and mix in some grated Pepper Jack cheese for a nice kick and cheesy melt.

Serving: I like these with a cooling avocado dip or salsa to cut through the spice.

Vegetarian Mediterranean Rolls

For a veggie option, use a mix of seasoned spinach, feta cheese, and sun-dried tomatoes. It’s a tasty Mediterranean twist.

Serving: Great with tzatziki sauce or a light Greek salad.

❄️ Storage


If there are leftovers or I’m prepping ahead, I store them in the fridge in an airtight container or wrapped tightly. They last up to 3 days but the pastry might not be as crisp.


For longer storage, I wrap each roll individually and freeze them. They’re good in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Thawing & Reheating

I thaw them in the fridge overnight. To keep the pastry crisp, I reheat them in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10-15 minutes. I avoid the microwave to keep them from getting soggy.

🤔 FAQs

Can I Make These Sausage Rolls Ahead of Time?

Absolutely! You can prepare these rolls ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or freeze them for up to 2 months. Just remember to store them in an airtight container or wrap them well to maintain freshness. This makes them a great option for meal prep or for having a quick and delicious meal ready to go.

What Should I Do with Leftover Puff Pastry?

Leftover puff pastry can be used in a variety of ways. You can make mini-tarts, turnovers, or even cheese straws. If you’re not planning to use it immediately, you can wrap it tightly and store it in the freezer for future use. Puff pastry freezes well, so it’s great to have on hand for impromptu baking.

How Can I Ensure the Pastry Remains Crispy?

To keep the pastry crispy, make sure to bake the rolls until they are golden brown, which typically takes about 25 minutes at 400°F (around 200°C). If you’re reheating them, use an oven or toaster oven instead of a microwave to maintain the crispiness.

How Do I Adjust Cooking Time If I Make More Than One Serving?

If you’re making more than one serving, you can still cook them at the same temperature of 400°F (around 200°C). Just make sure to space them out evenly on the baking sheet. The cooking time might increase slightly if the oven is crowded, so keep an eye on them and allow an extra few minutes if needed.

  • 3 oz Puff pastry
  • 2 teaspoons Mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Ketchup
  • 3 oz sausages
  • 1 teaspoons Seeds Mix


  • Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Prepare Dough: Roll out the dough. Spread a mix of ketchup and mayonnaise on it.
    3 oz Puff pastry, 2 teaspoons Mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons Ketchup
  • Add Sausage: Place a sausage on top of each dough section. Roll the dough around the sausage.
    3 oz sausages
  • Coat with Sauce: If any sauce leaks, use it to coat the rolls.
  • Prepare Baking Tray: Lightly grease a baking tray with oil.
  • Arrange Rolls: Place the rolls on the tray. Optionally, sprinkle with seeds.
    1 teaspoons Seeds Mix
  • Bake: Cook for about 25 minutes or until browned.
  • Serve: Enjoy warm with a side of green salad.


  • Cut the puff pastry into equal-sized rectangles. This helps each roll cook evenly and look nice when served.
  • After adding the sausage to the pastry, press the edges with a fork. This seals them nicely and adds a decorative touch, plus it keeps the filling from spilling out while baking.
  • Make a few small cuts or prick the tops with a fork before baking. This lets steam escape, keeping the pastry from getting soggy and helping it turn flaky and golden.
  • If you’re in the mood for something spicy, I’ll add a pinch of chili flakes or some diced jalapeño to the sausage mix.
