If you have a craving for sausage rolls then this recipe for easy peasy giant sausage rolls should be enough to satisfy you. Not one but TWO sausages wrapped up in crispy puff pastry with a little cheese too!
These are cheats sausage rolls. You don't really need a recipe for them. Just let me tell you about them and next time you fancy a sausage roll you can whip them up. I didn't come up with them myself. I've pinched the idea from Jamie Oliver in Jamie's 30-Minute Meals.
If I'd made them like the ones in the book they would have been small and dainty, but I decided to make gigantic sausage rolls with two normal-sized sausages in each one.
You see, the idea for using sausages instead of sausage meat and not skinning them is what I pinched from Jamie Oliver. The idea of making them giant was all mine! Yes, I know I do like to make healthy recipes but for some reason I felt like extra sausages.
Are these giant sausage rolls healthy?
In fact, if I really think about I can tell myself that these are actually a healthier choice because I'm only going to eat one! If I'd made them smaller maybe I would have eaten two sausage rolls and that would definitely have been less healthy!
What to serve with sausage rolls?
Ok, Let's be serious. Sausage rolls are not a healthy choice but in moderation they are fine. I like to serve these giant sausage rolls with lots of healthy salad vegetables. They are great with tomatoes, salad leaves, cucumber, radishes, celery, corn and whatever else is in the fridge!
Can you adapt these sausage rolls?
You can certainly change them a little by using different kinds of sausages. You can also use a different cheese. The cheese helps the sausage rolls to stick to the pastry as their skins are still on so it is good to use cheese.
You can also flavour them by scattering seeds on the outside. Try sesame seeds, poppy seeds or nigella seeds.
How should you store sausage rolls?
These sausage rolls will keep well for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Keep them in an airtight container. You can eat them cold or reheat them in the oven. They will need about 10 minutes in the oven at 180C to heat through thoroughly.
