Home cook reveals her secret recipe for the 'best ever' sausage rolls


A home cook has revealed the secret ingredients she uses to create the ultimate homemade sausage rolls for her family.

The mother, from Canberra, shared her simple recipe on social media showing exactly how she made the pastries costing her just 89 cents per roll.

She used sausage mince, mince, puff pastry, carrots, onions, Vegeta beef stock powder, dry herbs, egg, Dijon mustard, and Vegemite.

‘Try Vegemite, gives meat a real depth of flavour,’ she wrote in a Facebook group.

She was able to make four rolls per sheet, and she got 26 rolls out of the pastries. The mother said her grocery billy included $9 on sausage mince, $8.49  five-star mince, $4.76 puff pastry, two carrots for 50 cents and two onions for 50 cents.

‘Not adding in my pantry items, it comes to 89 cents for each sausage roll,’ she said. 

To make the sausage rolls, she sautéed finely grated carrots and chopped onions in a frying pan with a dash of oil until soft.

Next, she seasoned the vegetables with salt and pepper, Vegeta, herbs, a teaspoon of mustard and a teaspoon of Vegemite.

‘I like to add flavouring here as it’s easier to mix into meat,’ she explained.

In a mixing bowl, she mixed the sausage mince, mince and the vegetable mix until well combined.

Then she laid a sheet of pastry on a flat surface, cut sheet in half horizontally, and spooned the mince mixture down along the long side of the sheet, shaping the mince into a long sausage shape. 

She brushed the edge with a little egg mixture, roll to enclose filling and place the pastry on an oven tray, edge side down. She brushed top of the rolls with egg mixture before sprinkling sesame seeds on top.

‘If feeling extra fancy add sesame seeds on top,’ she said. 

She baked in the oven at 190 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown, and cooked through.

Homemade sausage rolls recipe

INGREDIENTS 

2 sausage mince  

500g premium mince

Puff pastry 

2 carrots, finely grated

2 onions, chopped

PANTRY STAPLES

Salt and pepper

Vegeta beef stock powder

1 teaspoon Vegemite 

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Dry mixed herbs 

Sesame seeds 

1 egg 

METHOD

Preheat oven to 190C. 

Sauté carrots and onions in a frying pan with a dash of oil until soft.

Season the vegetables with salt and pepper, Vegeta, herbs, mustard and Vegemite. 

In a mixing bowl, mix the sausage mince, mince and the vegetable mix until well combined.

Lay out a sheet of pastry on a flat surface, cut sheet in half horizontally, and spoon the mixture down along the long side of the sheet, shaping the mince into a long sausage shape. 

Brush the edge with a little egg mixture, roll to enclose filling and place the pastry on an oven tray, edge side down. Brushes top of the rolls with egg mixture, then sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

Bakes in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown, and cooked through.

The mother said the recipe suits all budgets – and how spending a bit more money can make a huge difference to your sausage rolls.

‘If budget allows, I find premium mince doesn’t drip out as much fat or shrink as much,’ she explained. 

But if you’re looking for a budget friendly option or opt for a three-star mince, she suggested changing baking trays half way through baking. 

‘You may need to swap sausage rolls to a new oven tray during cooking as the fat from the mince can make the bottom a bit soggy,’ she explained. 

To freeze them to eat later, she suggested cooking them briefly in the oven. 

‘I just slightly cooked in oven if I plan on freezing them,’ she said.

‘So when I reheat, I take them straight from the freezer and put them into the oven to finish cooking so the pastry is a lovely golden colour.’  

Many were amazed by her ‘best ever’ recipe, while others said they couldn’t wait to make it at home.
