In a nutshell, a sausage roll is meat, wrapped in puff pastry. That is the most accurate way of describing one. It is also the most boring.
If I want to get technical, a sausage roll is a delicious mix of sausage mince, onion, herbs and spices, and added little extras of deliciousness like fennel seeds, sweet chili sauce, the options are actually endless. Mooshed together with breadcrumbs and eggs, wrapped in puff pastry and cooked until browned and flaky.
The essential part of any sausage roll encounter ever, is the serving. Sausage rolls must get served with tomato sauce aka ketchup. It’s un- Australian not to.
