Everybody's favourite party food. John Torode's trick is to add water to the sausage mix, which makes the pastry puff up

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.

Very nice even though I put a tad too much garlic in it. My fault though, not down to the recipe. Lovely puffed up pastry so the tip about the water was a good one.

Made these today for a charity tea party which included guests aged from 9 to 95. Everyone loved these. They are super easy to make. Definitely better than shop bought.

Made These today, everyone loved them. They were so easy to make, and we're definitely better than shop brought sausage rolls.

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.

Has anyone cooked these then frozen them? Was wondering how they'd be cooked, frozen and then defrosted

Thanks for your question, you cook them from frozen for an extra ten minutes than the stated cooking time ie 35 - 45 minutes in total. This will give the sausage rolls time to defrost and then cook all the way through. Hope that's a bit clearer now.
