Sausage Rolls - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

We’ve seen many weird and wonderful ways of making slimming Sausage rolls such as bread thins and filo pastry but after tons of experimentation we’ve finally found the perfect recipe for Sausage Rolls that look, taste and have the texture as if you’ve used REAL flaky pastry.

If you were to eat one without knowing what they’re made with, you’d swear it was pastry. We promise you! Because you know exactly what goes into the sausage filling too, you can rest assured there are no nasties hidden in these Sausage Rolls so you can focus on the bigger issue: will you dip them in ketchup or brown sauce?

These Sausage Rolls are also pretty damn tasty, you may never go back to the bakery again. Pile them into a picnic basket or pop them into the kids’ lunchboxes, that is if you can resist them!

What diets are these Sausage Rolls suitable for?

These Sausage Rolls could be made gluten free by swapping out the following ingredients for gluten free versions;

  • Tortilla wraps
  • Worcestershire sauce

There are a number of brands that offer low calorie gluten free tortilla wraps. You can usually find them in the free from aisle of the supermarket.

You can also enjoy these Sausage Rolls if you’re dairy free.

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

Vegetarians could swap the pork mince for vegetarian sausages, or perhaps use the filling from our Cheese and Onion Pasties recipe instead!

How do you know when the Sausage Rolls are cooked?

When the Sausage Rolls are golden and crispy on the outside they will be cooked and ready,

This should take approx 30 minutes in the oven at 200°C.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached at least 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

How long can you keep these Sausage Rolls in the fridge?

Once removed from the oven, ideally you should eat it them within 4 hours.

If you allow any left overs to cool, make sure to refrigerate in a container with a lid and chill.  You can keep leftovers Sausage Rolls in the fridge for approximately 3 days or so.

Yes you can! This recipe can be frozen, but please remember to do the following;

  • Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough.
  • Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.

How do I reheat these Sausage Rolls?

We find that these Sausage Rolls are best reheated in the oven, so they keep that crispy ‘pastry’ shell.

From chilled: Place on a baking tray with a piece of foil over the Sausage Roll to prevent burning. Place in a 200°C preheated oven for 5-10 minutes, until piping hot throughout.

Random question: can you use filo pastry instead of wraps? Just curious!

Reply

    LisaTuesday 15th September 2020

    Hi
    Yes, you could but you might need to adjust the cooking times and temperatures to make sure the pastry and sausage are cooked at the same time. We’ve never tried it ourselves, so it would be a case of trial and error I’m afraid.

Hi could you substitute veggie mince for the pork mince?

    SharonWednesday 29th July 2020

    Hi Leigh, we haven’t tried this, but using veggie mince should work fine. Thanks for getting in touch.

Hello. When you say it’s under 400 calories per serving. How many sausages roll is classed as per serving? Is it under 400 calories per 1 full sausage roll, or per half a sausage roll when cut in half.

Thank you!

    Hi Abbie. Thanks for getting in touch. You can find how many servings each of our website recipes make at the bottom of the page along with a list of ingredients and the instructions. This particular recipe makes 6 sausage rolls and serves 3 people, so you get 2 sausage rolls for 399 calories. Hope this explains things.

Can you eat these cold or will they go soggy. Looking to make them for a party buffet.

    Holly LevellMonday 18th May 2020

    Hi Tracey, these Sausage Rolls will still be great cold. I’ve found some other ideas which would be great for a party buffet: Savoury Egg Bites, Chicken Satay Skewers or BLT Bites

Hi, made these yesterday and they were amazing! My husband compared them to M&S ultimate sausage rolls – high praise indeed! Please could you confirm, are they 399 cal per sausage roll or is it 399 cal for 3?

Thanks x

    Emma TMonday 23rd September 2019

    Hi Trudi,

    They are 399 per portion – the recipe makes 6 sausage rolls and serves 3, so 2 sausage rolls per portion ????

    So glad you enjoyed them!

These look amazing! If I made a batch and froze them could I defrost them and then eat them cold?

Reply

    Emma TMonday 1st July 2019

    Hi Ann,

    Yes, they can be frozen. You might need to reheat them in the oven if you’d like them to be crispy again, as freezing will make the wrap lose the crispness!

If I cooked and assembled these and kept some in the fridge, can I reheat them the next day? If so, what’s the best way of reheating them?

Reply

    CateMonday 3rd June 2019

    Yes you could! The oven works best, just cover them with some foil and make sure they are piping hot throughout before serving 🙂

How do you convert to US ingredients?

    CateWednesday 10th April 2019

    Hi Helen,

    What do you need to convert? 400g of mince (ground pork) is just over 14 ounces if that helps! 🙂

Could you use fresh pork mince and pickles assemble them then freeze them with out cooking.
