Sausage Rolls

I made these sausage rolls for lunch yesterday and the kids devoured it.

  • Pastry Puff (can get from the supermarket, the cold section where they sell the ice creams, popia skin and frozen roti canai)
  • Sausage (Americans call hot dogs), I got the ones with cheese filling
  • Spinach (cut it up into small bits)
  • Onions (Cut into rings or dice it)
  • Egg and sesame seeds
How to cook?
  • First I cooked the sausage with some butter. Yeah, not a healthy option but yummy. If you're health conscious just boil the sausages. Cut into half and put sausages aside.
  • Then I sauted the onions with a little bit of soy sauce. Put cooked onions aside.
  • Stir fry the sausage with garlic, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Put aside.
  • Roll out the pastry sheets. I saw 2 different sizes at the supermarket. There's no fast rule here. Just be flexible and decide how big you want your roles to be. I cut my pastry roll into about 5x4 inch rectangles. I kinda stretched it out a bit too.
  • Lay your sausage, onions and spinach on the pastry roll. Make sure you have some room (about 2cm) at the edges so you can seal it up.
  • Fold the pastry over to enclose the ingredients inside. Pinch the sides to seal it all up. Sorry I don't know the proper technique to do this. I just did it whatever way as long as I don't see any holes :)
  • Brush the top side with egg and sprinkle the sesame seeds.
  • Put on a baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Make sure you preheat the oven first to 220 degrees Celcius.
One thing I did wrong was to thaw my frozen puff pastry too early. By the time I started to work on the sausage rolls, the sheets were all sticking together. Remember to read the instructions on the packet on how long you should thaw before cooking.

It's okay if your sausage rolls don't turn out as professional looking like what you see in the bakery. Goodness knows mine are far from it. As you can see from the picture, some opened up as I baked it. Be brave to experiment. The one thing I like about these sausage rolls was how I managed to sneak in the vege.

Good luck trying.

  1. Nice and easy snack using puff pastry ... I like :-)

  2. Who says they don't look professional like from bakery. They look even better because they're homemade and your photo looks like its fresh out of the oven? Gosh! I wish I had an oven. Hehe.

  3. Wow, your sausage rolls look really good and delicious! You can even sell them to earn some pocket money! I'll buy them :)
