Pork Sausage Rolls with Apple, Sage and Dijon Mustard

Pork Sausage Rolls with Apple, Sage and Dijon Mustard


Sausage rolls are one of those funny little things that seem to unite people, young and old. Whenever I post a photo of them on social media I get inundated with requests for the recipe…..so here goes!

Feel free to vary the mustard used and to add different herbs. We love Sage in ours but Tarragon works well too.


  • 450 g of sausage meat either from your butcher or squeeze good quality sausages out of their cases
  • 1 packet of chilled ready rolled puff pastry, I used Lidl or Aldi
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and grated
  • 1 heaped tsp of Dijon mustard, feel free to add a second if you wish
  • 1-2  tsp of copped fresh sage
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 egg beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degs/Gas Mark 7
  2. Place all the ingredients in a bowl except for the pastry and the egg (was that obvious?!?!😜😜) and mix well to combine.
  3. Lay the pastry on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.
  4. Cut a line down the centre of the pastry to make 2 individual sheets.
  5. Put an even amount of sausage meat in the middle each pastry running from top to bottom (you want to leave a little room between the sausage meat and the edge of the pastry so you can fold it over easily.
  6. Egg wash all around the edges, fold the pastry over and seal the edges by crimping with your fingers or a fork.
  7. Prick all over before cutting into even sized individual rolls.
  8. Place in the hot oven and bake for around 15 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  9. Enjoy!

  1. Living in Canada now and I was craving some home comforts. I wasn’t expecting amazing results from these as the sausages here aren’t as good as in Ireland, but I went for a good quality British breakfast sausage from the butcher. With the addition of the mustard, sage and apple these turned out AMAZING. Tasted exactly like the sausage rolls I’ve been missing from home. Thank you, these will be an regular rotation from now on 🙂

    We made these at the weekend……….Amazeballs…………………………yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm….super tasty…………….massive hit, thank you Karen

  3. Hello, Karen, I make them on every week for my daughter’s tiffin boxes, when they go to school. The recipe is very yummy and tasty.

  4. I’ve made these for picnics & packed lunches before but decided to make a giant one for supper with a little Tabasco & Worcestershire sauce added then served with tenderstem brocolli and gravy. It went down a storm and has been rated favourite meal EVER by #2 son 🙌

  5. This recipe is a winner in our house. I make them almost every week, for school lunch boxes or to bring with me when visiting friends or having get togethers! I’m completely converted as I wouldn’t have allowed sausage rolls in our house up until I found this recipe. Karen, my 3 children thank you for this recipe as much as I do.

    • Sarah…thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! At least when you’re making them yourself you know exactly what’s in then 😉

  6. Excellent and easy! Will definitely try for school lunches and picnics!
