Sausage Roll Alternatives
These sausage roll alternatives will satisfy your craving, whether you’re looking for something with a little bit of everything or just a little bit of something specific.
Bangers and Mash
Bangers and mash is a sausage roll’s perfect match. The meaty flavor of the banger and the creamy texture of the mash come together to create a yummy – if not a little messy – treat.
This sausage roll alternative would work well with any type of sausage you like, such as pork, beef, or a mix of the two.
To create the bangers and mash roll, you’ll need some sausages, mashed potatoes (or other potatoes), butter, milk, and cheddar cheese. Start by browning some minced pork in a saucepan.
Then, when the pork is cooked, remove it from the pan and set it aside. Return the pan to the heat and add more butter to the pan, followed by the mashed potatoes. Stir the butter and potatoes until the butter has melted, then add the cheddar cheese and milk.
Turn the heat off and stir the cheese-milk mixture until it has a custard-like consistency. Then, carefully add in the browned pork and stir until everything is evenly incorporated.
Pour the mixture into a baking dish and sprinkle the top with more cheese. Put the bangers and mash in the oven and bake until the top is golden and the cheese is melted.
Egg rolls are another Chinese takeout favorite that can be used as a sausage roll alternative. This yummy roll is made with crispy fried rice, veggies, and – of course – an egg.
To make the egg roll, you’ll first want to fry up some rice until it is golden brown. Then, while the rice is still hot, carefully pour in a couple of eggs.
