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

  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.

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!
