How To Make Sausage Rolls

Recently, we’ve been having several sausage roll manufacturing companies popping up. But to most people especially the kids, the most popular sausage roll is Gala; which is the most popular sausage roll product in Nigeria (its normal since the name of the first product is given to subsequent ones always).

Anyways, I just learnt how to make the popular Nigerian “Gala” (mine is way richer though. Lol), and I thought to share the recipe and method of preparation. If you remember How To Prepare Meat Pie, then this one will be an easy one for you!

So! Let's make some yummy rolls!

Ingredients you need:

For the dough you'll need:

  • 5 cups of flour
  • A pinch of salt
  •  1 large egg (optional)
  • 250g margarine/ 1 sachet of margarine
  • water (as required)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Binder (1 tablespoon flour + 3 tablespoon water)
  • Medium sized egg to glaze the sausage rolls. 

For the filling you'll need:

  • 300g sausage of choice
  • 1 cube knorr seasoning (optional; to improve the taste of the sausage)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper (optional)

Alternatively, you can make your own sausage using minced beef and ground Cayenne pepper (I will bring a post on how you can do that).

Method of preparation:

·      - Mash the sausage and other ingredients together and set aside.

·      - Add the flour into a mixing bowl, add salt, margarine and rub in the margarine using the tip of your fingers.

·      - Make a well within the flour and add water.

·      - Gently mix in the water and then leave to rest for few minutes.

·      - Transfer the batter onto a clean flat surface and roll out flat using a rolling pin until it is about 2 centimeters thick.

·      - Using a knife or wheel cutter, cut the dough into rectangles or squares
- Carefully set the sausage on the dough, fold and seal. Rub some binder on the edge of the pastry to aid proper sealing. 
- Use a fork to vent the top and bake in an oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Don't have an oven? No worries, checkHow To Bake  Without An Oven Using The Local Pot Method.
- Glaze the surface of the pie with egg and return to the oven for 3 minutes. This gives the sausage a shiny look. 
- Serve as desired! With drinks or just as a snack.
