Sausage Roll Recipe

 Over the first weeks of this year, I've been making an effort to share some recipes that are special to our family traditions.

Today I'm sharing the short-cut method to making our family's traditional sausage rolls (which my family has really enjoyed over the holidays, asking me to make it multiple times.)

This was my English great-grandmother's recipe. I remember my grandmother always made sausage rolls for Christmas Eve to eat after opening our gifts at midnight.  We also sometimes had them on New Year's Eve.

She made a lovely homemade crust.  Then my Mom started making it with a box crust when necessary.  And now I make it using a store-bought crust that I just roll out.  So when my girls read this years from now, just know simple is best, but Grandma's way was probably tastier!

What you'll need:

2 roll-out crusts

1 tube of hot sausage

1 tube mild/regular sausage


Rolls out both crusts on floured surface.

Mix the two sausages together in a bowl.

Spread meat evenly on top of the crusts.

Then "jellyroll" the crust and meat concoction together.

Make sure to seal the edges.

Bake on a pan at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until crust is brown and meat is no longer pink.

Slice and serve hot.
