Feeding the Funky Bunch: Sausage Rolls


This is my sausage roll recipe, regularly pulled out for play group, play dates, birthday parties, afternoon teas, kids dinner – anytime really! Packed with vegies and easy to make, healthy homemade sausage rolls are a brilliant alternative to store-bought ones. You can use good quality sausage meat for these but I prefer to buy minced meat or mince my own in the TMX. Some of the mixed minces (pork & veal, beef & pork) that are available now work well. If you have the time you could try making your own puff pastry, but I haven’t done this.


  • 400-500g minced meat
  • 1 medium carrot, finely grated (100-120g)
  • 1/2 zucchini, finely grated (180-200g)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten – pour half the beaten egg into the meat mixture and save the other half to brush onto the pastry
  • 1tsp dijon mustard
  • 1tsp thermomix vegetable stock concentrate
  • season with pink salt & black pepper
  • 3 sheets store-bough puff pastry, defrosted


  1. Pre-heat oven to 220C
  2. Place minced meat, grated carrot & zucchini, breadcrumbs, 1/2 beaten egg, mustard, stock, salt & pepper in bowl
  3. Mix well by hand
  4. Cut each sheet of puff pastry in half lengthways
  5. Divide mixture into 6 equal quantities
  6. Shape 1 portion of mixture into a long sausage and place  on bottom half of a pastry sheet
  7. Brush top edge of pastry with egg wash
  8. Roll pastry from bottom, over meat mixture and seal with seam on the bottom
  9. Slice into small sausage rolls, whatever size suits your needs
  10. Place on a lined baking tray, brush with egg wash and bake 20-25min
