Sausage Roll Fillings

Grain-Free Sausage Rolls, using the Grain-Free Dough from Life-Changing Food cookbook

If you’re grain free or gluten free and missing sausage rolls, here’s some yummy recipes that we’ve been making lately! I use the Grain-Free Dough recipe from Life-Changing Food for sausage roll pastry (it’s so delish and there’s dairy-free, nut-free and egg-free variations)… or if you don’t want to make the pastry you can buy our Grain-Free Pastry premade, from your local Primal Alternative stockist! (Or of course you can use any pastry you prefer.)

Note: If you are on the GAPS diet, you can use my Almond Meal Pastry (recipe here), but it will be a bit crunchy and can sometimes crack a bit with sausage rolls… but it’s not bad if you need a starch-free version.

Scroll down to see recipes for my Butter Chicken filling and my sister Joye’s Lamb & Rosemary filling – yum!! You can also find a Pork & Fennel filling in Life-Changing Food, and a Spicy Chicken & Veggie filling (with a spelt rough puff pastry recipe).

I like to do a huge batch of 32 sausage rolls and freeze them for lunches and snacks… so convenient! (For those wondering what containers I use for storage, these are Glasslock and Decor.)

Makes 16 sausage rolls, using the Grain-Free Dough from Life-Changing Food

  • Author: QuirkyJo

Ingredients

Filling:

1/2 stick celery

120g carrot

120g zucchini

1/2 brown onion

2 cloves garlic

a few sprigs of coriander or parsley

500g chicken mince

100g almond or pepita meal (or gf or sourdough bread crumbs)

1 egg

2 Tbsp Quirky Cooking Butter Chicken Spice Blend

(OR make the spice blend in my Butter Chicken recipe & use 2 Tbsp of that blend)

2 tsp fine sea salt

1/2 tsp red chilli flakes (opt)

Pastry:

1/2 batch Grain-Free Dough (recipe in Life-Changing Food) or preferred pastry

2 Tbsp sesame seeds

1 egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200C. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Cut celery, carrot and zucchini into quarters and chop with onion, garlic and coriander or parsley in a Thermomix (10 sec/speed 5) or food processor until finely grated.
  3. Mix grated veggies with mince, nut/seed meal (or bread crumbs), egg, Butter Chicken Spice Blend, salt and chilli flakes (if using) until well combined (either by hand, or in Thermomix 30 sec/rev/speed 5 using spatula to help combine).
  4. Divide dough into 4 equal balls. Roll one ball out between 2 sheets of baking paper to a rectangle approx 28x13cm (dough should be about 3-5mm thick).
  5. Place one quarter of the filling along the long side of the rectangle (close to the edge), then roll into a cylinder shape so mince is enclosed. Use a sharp knife to slice cylinder into 4 equal rolls. Place onto baking tray and repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  6. Beat remaining egg and brush top of sausage rolls then sprinkle with sesame seeds. 
  7. Bake 25-30 mins or until golden brown. 

Notes

Delicious served with mango chutney!

Store in fridge for up to 3 days or freeze in an airtight container/bag for up to 3 months.

Variations:

Egg free: Swap egg in filling for 1 Tbsp chia seeds mixed with 3 Tbsp water. Swap egg wash on pastry for a milk wash (dairy or dairy free), or brush with olive oil. (The Grain-Free Dough also has an egg-free variation.)

    These look amazing thanks Jo. After defrosting do you serve them cold or reheat? Can’t wait to try these. Need to look at all your grain free yummies.

      Hi Chloe, I’m so happy you are enjoying the recipes, but no they can’t be added to cookidoo sorry as they are copyrighted and adding to the Thermomix platform breaches copyright. (This is because once a recipe is added to Cookidoo it belongs to Thermomix, which obviously wouldn’t be great for all of us independant recipe writers! 🙂 ) Here’s some info from the Cookidoo page on the Thermomix website for you:

      “Please note: you cannot and must not upload any recipes or images that do not belong to you as this would be a breach of copyright. By way of example you mustn’t upload a recipe you have taken from a third-party cookbook or website, as this would be done without the author’s permission and constitute copyright infringement.
