To make sausage rolls from scratch, you’ll need:

Sausage mince – sausage mince is also known as sausage meat. You can buy sausage mince from the meat section of major supermarkets or butcher.

If you can’t buy sausage mince, you can make your own by squeezing the filling out of the skins of regular pork sausages.

Flavourings – take these sausage rolls to the next level with garlic (optional), regular tomato sauce (ketchup) and Worcestershire sauce.

Egg wash – before baking, I brush a small amount of lightly beaten egg over the pastry and then sprinkle with sesame seeds or black poppy seeds. The egg makes the pastry turn a rich golden colour and makes them extra crispy. How To Make Sausage Rolls From Scratch

The biggest duduk perkara that people have when baking sausage rolls is having soggy pastry bases… and no-one wants soggy pastry!

TIP: this is THE most important step to avoiding sogginess… so don’t skip it!Preheat Your OvenEnsure that your oven is preheated to 210 degrees celsius (fan-forced) or 220 degrees celsius (conventional) before cooking.Use Cold Baking TraysRemove the baking trays from the oven before preheating.The trays need to be cold when you place the uncooked pastry rolls on them so that they cook evenly in the panggang and get a crispy base.Using hot trays will begin to soften and ‘melt’ the pastry before they’re added to the panggang – which will lead to soggy pastry.Prepare The TraysLightly grease flat non-stick baking traysDo NOT line the baking trays with baking paper as it acts as a barrier between the sausage rolls and the baking tray and stops the pastry from getting crispy.Rotate The TraysRotate the baking trays partway through baking. Rotate between the panggang shelves and also turn the trays around.Transfer To A Cooling RackAllow to cool for lima minutes on the baking tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.Recipe FAQ & Tips
