Cheese and onion sausage rolls are a delightful twist on the classic British pastry, merging savory sausage with the creamy goodness of cheese and the tang of onions. Originating as a staple in British bakeries, these rolls have found their place in various cultures around the world thanks to their versatility and delicious flavor. Perfect for parties, casual get-togethers, or even as a hearty snack, these rolls are well worth your time in the kitchen.

Cheese and onion sausage rolls can be enjoyed on their own or paired with a light salad for a more balanced meal. They also taste great with a side of tangy coleslaw or some roasted vegetables. If you’re serving these at a gathering, consider pairing them with a variety of dipping sauces like honey mustard or spicy ketchup to please a variety of palates.

Cheese and Onion Sausage Rolls

Servings: 8


1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed

1 lb sausage meat

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 egg, beaten

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, combine the sausage meat, shredded cheddar cheese, and finely chopped onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Unroll the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut the pastry into two equal rectangles.

Divide the sausage mixture in half and form each half into a long log, placing each log in the center of a pastry rectangle.

Brush the edges of the puff pastry rectangles with the beaten egg.

Fold the pastry over the sausage logs, pressing the edges together to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges if desired.

Cut each log into 4 equal pieces to make 8 rolls total and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

Brush the tops of the rolls with the remaining beaten egg.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the sausage is cooked through.

Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Variations & Tips

For a spicier version, consider adding a teaspoon of chili flakes to the sausage mixture. If you prefer a different cheese, substitute the cheddar with mozzarella or pepper jack. For a more gourmet touch, try adding a teaspoon of fresh thyme or rosemary to the mixture. You can also use different types of sausage, like chicken or turkey, to suit your dietary preferences.
