Absolutely delicious! I made these for part of my food technology GCSE two years ago and they were super easy to make and made a very tasty end product!

Delicious - they're even more popular than traditional sausage rolls in our house!

Great recipe, still like to add sausage-meat into mix, adds to the flavor & texture, added extra bacon... Makes a tasty puff-pastry slice with some grated mature cheddar before laying on top rectangle of pastry ( fold pastry in half length-wise, make some cuts in pastry to allow topping to peep through, leave edge to seal & crimp ). Egg wash, sprinkle on sesame seeds, bake or freeze, slice into portions as desired, looks good too, taste's great... Easy to make, a little different from 'sausage rolls', easily adaptable to own taste & requirements, a good basic recipe, try different additions of ingredients...Enjoy!

Have made them so often. Usually freeze them and use . We love garlic and I always use it. That is a matter of taste. Cannot reccommend them enough.

I have made these a few times now and love them, a nice light alternative to sausage, sausage rolls, but definitely leave the garlic out completely - too raw and overwhelming, better without

Right, that's it. Have just read all the fab reviews and I just gotta make them real soon. so have printed out the recipe. Am drooling at the thought

Made these a couple of times and have gone down very well with visiting friends. Nice alternative to usual sausage rolls. I also turned them over for a few minutes at the end of cooking, as some other people have done, to dry the underneath, but that isn't a problem.

Delicious but took me longer than 20 min to bake - and the parts that are touching the baking sheet becomes really sticky coz of the moist of the i had to take them out and flip them over a few times to "dry" them out in the overn - any tip to solve this issue?

Lovely recipe and nicely simple to make. I found I had to go quite easy on the garlic and that they tasted better the day after baking as the flavours seemed to develop.
