Aussie Sausage Rolls

I was born and raised in Australia, but moved to the U.S. when I got married. When I long for some Australian recipes, I bake up a batch of this sausage roll recipe and share them with neighbors or co-workers. —Melissa Landon, Port Charlotte, Florida

    3 dozen


  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives or 2 teaspoons dried chives
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

    These were really good. I doubled the recipe but made the filling as directed. I also used an egg wash to give the dough a golden brown crust. It’s important to bake these on a rack or they may get soggy from sitting in their own grease while baking. I offered my family dipping sauces of Dijon mustard, honey mustard, and hienz 57. All were good but the rolls are good without dip as well. I served these for dinner as a side to red pepper/ tomato soup and a vinegar dressing coleslaw. These are very good but rich so I would have them as an appetizer or a side to soup and/or salad.

    These were wonderful! I followed the recipe with no changes, and I was very happy with the results. I made these for a cultural experience while our family was learning about Australia. I'd make them again--perfect for a game night or to accompany tomato soup!

    Heather- I see that you may be new to this recipe. The recipe has been rewritten. Previously, the instructions were confusing, and a post by Valerie saved the day. Please keep in mind that there is never any need to be rude to others. BTW, the recipe is delicious.

    Look better than they taste. They tend to soggy-up after time.

    This is a wonderful recipe and well written directions. If you can not follow them you must be a beginner cook, and asking for help is a good way to learn but please do not insult the writer in order to cover the fact that they assume you know more than you do!
