I think chopped olives or olive tapenade might go well instead of the tomatoes. Stick with a mediterranean feel.

Has anyone tried this without the bacon? I don't eat pork and was wondering if it still tasted good and worth a go.

Very popular recipe with everyone. Freezes beautifully and the recipe has even crossed the Channel and travelled as far as the French Riviera. Can be served year round and is delicious with chilli relish.

These are my new favourite sausage roll! I'm not always keen on the little bits of fat in sausage meat so chicken was a great alternative for me. I've frozen two batches now and they cook really well after freezing.

Made these second time around and they were huge success, only variation was to add some of the oil from the sundried tomatoes as the first time i felt the filling was slightly on the dry side........anyway the oil seemed to rectify this. A firm favorite and they even taste better if made the day before so great for parties etc.

Not too fiddly and really tasty. A great alternative to sausage rolls and definately a good barbeque addition.

These were lovely! I didn't have any sun-dried tomatoes but had some sun-dried tomato puree which worked just as well. We cooked half and froze half uncooked which defrosted and cooked just fine.

Made these yesterday with the help of my new food processor. They were an absolute success. Very tasty, a real change.

Really lovely and easy to make. Best eaten on the day as they become a little dry the following day. I will definitely make them again, maybe experimenting with different fillings.
