When it comes to making party food there is often a lot to be done. Given that you don’t want to spend too long in the kitchen, I have opted to use ready rolled puff pastry. One sheet is just right for making 16 mini sausage rolls.  You could make your own pastry, but I’m inclined not to bother. I used ready rolled because that is what I can get in my local store, but you could also use blocks of puff pastry which tend to be a bit cheaper. If you  choose to roll your own, roll out to a rectangle of about 25 x 35cm and the thickness of a £1 coin. For the best flavoured puff pastry use the  all butter variety. Sausage rolls are also delicious made with short crust pastry, which is easy to make yourself.

The cranberry sauce really lifts the flavour of these sausage rolls to the next level. I used my own home-made cranberry sauce which has a real tang. It is easy to make and only takes minutes, so I strongly urge you to make your own.  The flavour is so much better than shop bought cranberry sauce.  You only need a few tablespoons for the sausage rolls but it freezes well. Make it now, freeze it, and it will be one more task ticked of the list for Christmas.


  • 350 g minced pork
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 320 g sheet of ready rolled puff pastry
  • about 4 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 1 beaten egg to glaze
  • metric - US cups


  1. Preheat the oven to 200℃ (180℃ fan)/400°F/gas mark 6.
  2. Place the minced pork in a mixing bowl. Add the chopped shallot and herbs. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  3. Cut the pastry sheet in half lengthways. Shape half the meat mixture into one long sausage and place in the middle of one piece of the pastry.
