Posted May 30, 2023

If you love a juicy, flavoursome sausage roll wrapped in golden flaky pastry, then have a go at making your own at home.

Sausage rolls are an Australian staple, and there’s nothing better than making your own, especially if you’re staying at home to watch the footy or have a family to feed.

When you pull them out of the oven, you’ll be lucky if these rolls make it to the table. The warm aroma of the flaky pastry will fill the kitchen, and meat lovers will crave that first bite.

This sausage roll recipe from RACV's Le Petit Gateau Executive Pastry Chef Amit Sinha is great for entertaining. The rolls can be served with the best homemade chips, which can be cooked in an air fryer as a healthier alternative to deep-frying foods.

How to make sausage rolls vegan 

The addition of vegetables makes these rolls healthier, and the sauces, parmesan cheese and fresh parsley create those moreish flavours.

If you’re catering for vegans, then they don’t have to miss out. Substitute pumpkin or sweet potato for the mince, leave out the parmesan cheese, and instead of Worcestershire Sauce, which contains anchovies, try soy sauce.

For those people who love a baking challenge, we have a puff pastry recipe you can try. Make it vegan by using Nuttelex instead of butter.

So, whether it's a lunchtime treat, after-school snack or in front of the TV, this sausage roll recipe is destined to become a family favourite.

DIY sausage roll with tomato sauce

There's nothing like a homemade sausage roll straight from the oven. 


  1. Place diced onion, grated carrot, grated zucchini and garlic in the large bowl. Pour over the tomato paste, BBQ sauce, Worcestershire sauce and egg. Add in salt and pepper. Give it all a thorough mix with a whisk until everything is combined.
  2. Add in the mince, mix with the vegetables together. Sprinkle over the breadcrumbs, cheese and parsley and keep mixing until it all comes together.
  3. Cut the pastry sheets in half or third, depending on the size.
  4. Arrange the mince mix in a log shape along the center of each pastry sheet. Brush one long side of pastry with the egg and roll up to enclose filling.
  5. Cut each giant sausage roll into two normal sized ones, or six party sized rolls. Place seam side down on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Make sure each roll is at least 3cm apart so the pastry will puff properly.
  6. Egg wash each sausage roll and sprinkle on sesame seeds. 
  7. Put the sausage rolls in the preheated oven and bake at 190C for 30-35 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown.
