Traditional English style sausage rolls could not be easier to make using Rhodes dough!


8 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, dough thawed but still cold
1/2 pound ground pork sausage
1/2 white onion, diced
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 egg, beaten


1. Combine ground sausage, onion, 1 egg, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix together with your hands until it is fully combined.

2. Combine 2 rolls and roll out on a sprayed surface to a 9 inch by 7 inch strip. Brush the inner two inches of the seven inches with butter. On top of the butter, place 1/4 of the sausage mixture in a large strip down the center of the dough. Brush one side of the dough with butter all the way down the 9 inches next to the sausage. Take the side that was brushed with butter and wrap that dough around the sausage mixture. That will tightly pack the sausage into the dough. Brush the other side of the dough with butter, just on the inner edge next to the dough that is wrapped around the sausage. Wrap that dough around the dough that is already encasing the sausage. Be sure the dough is stuck together and will not unwrap. Cut the 9 inch rope into 6 pieces and set aside.

3. Repeat step 2 three more times with remaining ingredients.

4. Arrange rolls on a sprayed baking sheet and cover with sprayed plastic wrap, let rise for 45 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and brush each sausage roll with beaten egg. Bake at 325ºF for 35-40 minutes.

    I’m confused here. A 3 feet by 7 inch strip. 3 feet long? OUt of 8 rolls? I don’t have that much room on my counter to roll out something that long.
