I make these as weekend snacks and for parties, I strongly suggest to double the recipe if you are making these for a party. To save some time prepare the sausage mixture up to 24 hours in advance. These are simply delicious, and not hard to make!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup fresh breadcrumb
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 12 lb Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 12 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 -2 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (to brush on pastry)
  • marinara sauce, heated


  1. Grease a large baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl combine breadcrumbs and milk; let stand until the milk is absorbed (about 5 minutes).

  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Unfold the pastry sheet onto a floured surface.
  6. Roll out into a 20x10-inch rectangle.
  7. Cut pastry crosswise into 10x4-inch strips (I use a pizza cutter for this!).

  9. Spoon 1/3 of the sausage mixture in narrow strip lengthwise down the center of each pastry strip.
  10. Fold the long sides in covering the filling and overlapping slightly.

I'm so glad I found this recipe. I did, however, make a few changes. I used Johnsonville breakfast sausage and didn't bother with the onion or garlic. I also added an additional 1/4 cup of fresh breadcrumbs which hadn't been soaked in milk, as it seemed to give a slightly better texture to the sausagemeat. I used Karen's easy puff pastry recipe from this site as I'm not a big fan of shop bought puff pastry. I'm actually British and this is the closest I've ever gotten to an English style sausage roll now that I live in the US. So thank you so much!

These definitely remind me of British sausage rolls. I used the low fat tube breakfast sausage, so no extra issues with casings. I also used dried, seasoned breadcrumbs, so I could have left out the seasonings. This recipe is pretty forgiving, so put the spices you like!

These are super easy to make and sooooooo good. I bought Market Basket Marinara Sauce here in New England. I doubled the recipe and froze the other half. Didn't thaw them out before cooking. They went quick both times I served them.
