Festive Sausage Rolls - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

These Festive Sausage Rolls are what your Christmas buffet has been missing! If you’ve tried our original Sausage Rolls recipe, you’ll enjoy the seasonal makeover we’ve given it. 

Just like that version, we’ve skipped the pastry to save on calories. Instead, our filling of turkey, fresh sage and cranberry sauce is bundled up in a low-calorie tortilla wrap and baked until it’s crisp and golden. 

They’re so quick to make from scratch that you can have a fresh batch on the buffet table in just over half an hour. If you’re feeling super organised and getting ahead with the Christmas prep, this is one of the best recipes to make in advance. These Festive Sausage Rolls will freeze really well, and all you’ll need to remember to do is defrost them overnight the day before you want to serve them. 

What diets are these Festive Sausage Rolls suitable for?

This Festive Sausage Rolls recipe is suitable for anyone following a dairy free diet. It can be made gluten free as long as you use gluten-free low-calorie tortilla wraps.

Please make sure to double check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.
