Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Crush the garlic and a little salt to a paste using a pestle and mortar, or use the flat of your knife on a chopping board. Mix together with the parsley and stir in 50ml cold water. Place the sausagemeat in a food processor (if using sausages, peel away the skins), turn on to a high speed, pour the garlic-flavoured water into the mixture, then season with pepper.
  2. Unroll the pastry onto a board and cut in half lengthways. Divide the sausage mixture in two and spread along the length of each pastry strip in a cylinder shape, leaving a 1cm edge. Tightly roll the pastry around the sausagemeat and brush the ends with the beaten egg to secure. Use a sharp knife to cut each roll into 10 pieces, each about 2.5cm long, and place on a baking sheet. Can be made up to this point 1 month in advance and frozen. To cook from frozen, simply add 10 mins to cooking time below.
  3. Brush more egg all over the pastry. Place in the oven and cook for 25-35 mins until the pastry is puffed and crisp and the meat has cooked through. Remove and eat hot or cold with tomato ketchup if you like.

I love these, I use a little more garlic and add some sage and oregano instead of parsley (because I didn't have any). I also cut them a bit bigger for lunches. They are delicious!

Delicious! I also swapped parsley for sage and added a 1/2 a sautéed onion. I made the pastry using the Gordon Ramsay Rough Puff Pastry recipe which is listed on this site. Amazingly easy and it made enough pastry to freeze half for a second batch of sausage rolls. The second batch in the oven now and I can't wait for them to come out.

Great! Swapped the parsley for 3 chopped fresh sage leaves, absolutely delicious.

I made these without a food processor and into larger sausage rolls. They turned out great! Some people said they were the best sausage rolls they had ever had. I'm going to make them again today.

These are gorgeous! Every time I make them for a gathering, they go in no time! Definitely a favourite, hot or cold. No need to buy expensive sausages either which is a bonus.

Used good quality sausages and sage instead of parsley but they were lovely. Went down great on New Years Eve.

A very easy recipe to follow which produced 20 lovely looking sausage rolls. Too garlicky though in my opinion, second batch I reduced the garlic to 1/4 of a clove.

Made these for the first time this evening with my 11 year old daughter. So quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious. Will definately be making these again - lots by the looks of things :-)

Just made a batch to freeze for Christmas but they are so good I think they might all have gone before they've cooled down!

I've been making these for ages now, never any left. The only thing i change is the size, make giant ones for dinner served with spicy onions.

Yum, yum, yum! Delicious. The sausage meat from the butchers made the differenece, so tasty. I was really impressed by how easy and quick these were to make and so incredibly worth it for the difference in taste, compared to baught ones.

These were a huge hit with my 2 young nephews and brother-in-law and instead of mixing the garlic and water etc. I just bunged the whole lot in the magimix together. I also didn't have any parsley so used fresh chives.

I made half of these with sausagemeat and the other half I filled with potato which had been mashed with cheddar cheese and a little fried onion. They were both delicious.

So quick & easy to do.... I used a Pork Salsa sausage meat & everyone loved them. Will use this again & again just changing what sausage meat I use. ;0)

I made these in advance for boxing nite and they cooked from frozen really well. I didnt realise how simple they are to make. I used a little more garlic than the recipe, you could tell the difference between the ones that were homemade and the ones i bought. No camparison!

These are gorgeous though I admit I did alter it ever so slightly.... I used a squirt of garlic puree (much more convenient) and a dash of mixed herbs instead of parsley. Heaven!!!
