How Sausage Rolls are Made

Choosing the Right Meat

You can get Sausage Meat from Burt’s Catering Butchers, either as a caterer, or using our Home Delivery Form. You might want to order the sausages just so that if you don’t use all of the sausage meat, you can still cook some delicious sausages to go alongside them.

All of our sausages are hand made using traditional methods and recipes. And we also use fresh flavourings where possible. But there’s nothing to stop you from adding your own flavourings as well; adding a bit of parsley, oregano, or even caramelised onion would add a bit of unique flavour to your sausage rolls.

Making the Puff Pastry

Nowadays you can pop into your local supermarket and buy a ready-rolled puff pastry sheet. This makes it incredibly easy to get your homemade sausage rolls in the oven.

But if you’re wanting to make your own puff pastry, it only takes around 15 minutes to get the ingredients mixed together and rolled out flat to take your sausage meat.

Adding an Egg Glaze

Once you’ve rolled your pastry flat, added the sausage meat, and rolled the pastry around the meat. You’ll then want to cover the outside with a beaten egg. This will help secure the roll in place, as well as give the rolls a lovely shiny coat to them when they come out of the oven.

The best thing about making your own sausage rolls is that you can decide how much meat goes in, how much pastry is wrapped around, and also how big they are.
