This low potassium snack makes a nice party treat.


2 x 320g packs of ready-rolled puff pastry

340g of sausage meat

3-4 tablespoons of a chutney

1 egg yolk

1 tablespoon of poppy seeds (optional)


  1. Step 1

    Pre-heat the oven to 180°c/gas mark 4 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Lay the puff pastry sheets out and cut each sheet down the middle length-ways, so that you have 4 pieces in total.

  2. Step 2

    Mix the sausage meat with the chutney and, when fully mixed together, divide into four.

  3. Step 3

    Take each quantity of sausage meat mix and make into a long sausage shape. Lay them along the middle of each piece of pastry and bush a little egg yolk along one long edge of each.

  4. Step 4

    Fold the other edge of the pastry over the meat and press it against the egg yolk. Using a fork, press into the pastry to seal the edge.

  5. Step 5

    Brush the pastry lengths with the remaining egg yolk and sprinkle with poppy seeds if using.

  6. Step 6

    Cut the sausage rolls at the desired lengths and place them onto the baking tray. Cook for 15-20 minutes, depending on size, until golden. Remove from the oven and transfer to rack to cool.
