Every family has dishes that were made in their home so often that when you make and eat them later in life they feel and taste like home. Sausage Rolls is one of these dishes for me. My mom would make sausage rolls for a weekend breakfast with a delicious gravy or to enjoy on the go to grab on our way out to school. My favorite is when she would make Sausage Rolls right before a road trip. We would have something nice and hot to eat on the road and leftovers were easily reheated or enjoyed cold.
These are actually quite a simple dish. It was something my mom could easily make for our family of 8 that we all enjoyed. Now that I make them for my family I occasionally add extra ingredients like onions or mushrooms but the simple sausage recipe is what reminds me of home, so that is what I will be sharing today.
Sausage Rolls Recipe
- 1 pound ground sausage (I use Jimmy Deam regular or country style) – brought to room temperature
- Bread Dough
You will need your favorite bread dough. Often my mom would even make these with some Bisquick dough or some other dough mix. I use a bread machine recipe. I can have my bread machine do all of the mixing work and then I can easily make these once the dough is ready. Here is the bread machine dough recipe I use:
- 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. of Warm Milk
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. Sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 2 Tbsp Butter, softened
- 3 cups Flour
- 2 tsp.Yeast
I put the ingredients in my bread maker in the order listed and then set my bread machine to just mix/raise the dough and take the dough out before it bakes the bread.
Place the dough on a floured surface.
Roll out your dough. Honestly I don’t know how thick it is that I roll it out – about the same as what I would do for cinnamon rolls.
When I start making the dough I also pull the sausage out of the fridge. It is easier to spread the sausage on the dough if it is at room temperature. Spread the entire pound of sausage onto the dough.
Gently roll up the dough.
Then like you would with cinnamon rolls cut the roll into slices. Place each slice into a greased dish.
Let rise for about 30 minutes and then place in a 400 degree oven for 18-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
Serve hot out of the oven. These can be stored in the fridge and reheated in the microwave (I even like them cold from the fridge). These can also be made to go with your favorite gravy for a delicous take on biscuits and gravy!
