Easy Homemade Sausage Rolls (with hidden veggies) 

This recipe has been requested countless times by both kids and adults over the years – they are easy, homemade and delicious!  Perfect for parties, after school snacks or weekend gatherings with family and friends.  Variations are possible too with substitutions depending on age and taste.  For example, I add onion and extra pepper when making for adults only.  Kids won’t even notice the grated vegetables and if you prefer a different meat you can also make these with pork or chicken mince.

This recipe makes 48 mini sausage rolls and you’ll need two baking trays (lined with baking paper).

Preheat oven to 180C. 


  • puff pasty (4 sheets – I always use Pampas)
  • 500g beef sausage mince (I buy Woolworths Aussie Beef Gluten Free Sausage Mince 500g)
  • one medium potato, grated
  • one medium carrot, grated
  • one egg
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt & pepper
  • extra egg for sealing and glazing 

How To Make

Remove your puff pastry from the freezer so the sheets can thaw completely before you use them.

The messy part that kids love to help with – simply mix all the filling ingredients in a bowl.  I use a fork and just put all ingredients in the one bowl, then mix until combined.  Crack your extra egg into a small bowl and beat lightly. Put this aside.

Lay our your first sheet of puff pastry on a cutting mat and slice in half.  Using the fork, take a quarter of the mixture, half it, and make an even row along both sections of pastry.

Using a pastry brush, brush the egg wash (put aside earlier) along one edge, so when you roll the pastry over the filling it adheres to the other edge.

Cut each roll into 6 parts and place on your baking tray.


Using the pastry brush again, give each sausage roll a generous coating of egg wash.  You can also sprinkle on poppy seeds or sesame seeds here if you wish.

Bake in the oven for approximately 30-35 minutes, but start checking after 25 minutes to check they are cooked and have browned nicely.  

Serve with your choice of sauce – tomato sauce, chilli sauce or BBQ sauce.  Enjoy!
