Sausage rolls are one of our favourite things. It’s the puff pastry. Whether you fill it with beef, or chicken, or sweet potato and beans, puff pastry is homey and leaves you satisfied. Our diet has increasingly become vegetarian, so the sweet potato and bean variety are a great option when you want the puff pastry hit but not the beef or chicken.
The difference with making vegetarian sausage rolls is you have to pre-cook the sweet potato before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. When you’re used to throwing everything in the bowl, mixing it together and dividing it between the pastry sheets, pre-cooking can seem like a bit of a bother. After all, sausage rolls are a 20 minute dinner option (not including the baking). But it’s not all doom and gloom.
