Sausage rolls have been a favorite of mine ever since an extended stay in England more than thirty years ago. Tuesday was market day in the nearby town. I’d hop on the bus with the other ladies from my village. After shopping, we’d gather for a coffee and pastry before catching the return bus. I tried a sausage roll on the first trip and I was hooked; it became my weekly order.
A snack for all occasions. Sausage rolls are perfect for brunch, cocktail parties, and of course tea.

My aunt’s cup of tea was in the photo. I don’t want Nicola to think I didn’t learn to put milk in my tea. lol 🙂
I come from a long line of milk and sugar in tea drinkers! It’s amazing how many people in the states find it peculiar. I feel disappointed that during my time as an au pair in Britain when I wasn’t a vegetarian I did not come across sausage rolls. They look and sound tasty. As a bona fide Anglophile who never got over my ancestors immigrating, I loved your shopping story.
These rolls remind me of sausage rolls from back home but I could never eat them because they had pork. I’ve made them with seasoned ground beef at home and they were delicious :o)
Great rolls. Thanks for sharing, I made this this yesterday and it turned out great.
