Definitely not your regular sausage roll. They have an unusual flavour and I'm not a fan, but have made them several times now because other people love them. I don't bother with the sesame seeds.

Made these for a picnic, really pleased with them. Didn't change the recipe. Everyone wants me to make them again.

These turned out fab! But instead of chicken I used minced pork and beef. I cooked them first adding some mushrooms and greenpeppers then just whizzed everything up. It made a delicious and filling snack when on the go. I loved the sun dried tomatoes they worked so well. Thanks for the receipe

I made these yesterday as my contribution to a buffet party. I roasted a red pepper that I had in the fridge and used that instead of the sundried tomatoes. The recipe was very easy and the result was extremely tasty. The red pepper coloured the filling nicely and, with a few bits of red and green left from the whizzed up basil and pepper, made it a pretty party plate.

Hi guys, I would like your advice on how to freeze these. I'm hosting a huge party (150 guests) and doing loads of food in advance. Do you think if would be best to freeze them after cooking, defrost and then warm up, or is it best to freeze them raw? Any advice on buffet food welcome!

made these for a party and they disappeared quickly - easy and bit different from your standard party snack

Have made these a few times now. They can be cooked from frozen, but take a little longer than from fresh. I made a large batch and cooked on the day of my son's wedding. They were very well received. Lovely hot or cold.

I made these for a picnic recently - I can't emphasize enough how good they were! Half of the batch were eaten by my family before we'd even set off and they last well in the fridge too - tasting better than shop-bought. A few people on here mention sundried tomatoes but they weren't overpowering as the recipe only uses a few, just to give a depth of flavour and the garlic flavour was quite strong in mine. Try them out! Guaranteed success. Can't wait to try a few varieties - red pepper seems to be mentioned on here a lot too - yum!
