Reviews for Aussie Sausage Rolls
"I want to thank Melissa Landon. I've been making these for about 3 years. I actually use 2 pounds bulk sausages one hot and one sage. While moving I couldn't find my spices and grabbed a box of herb stuffing. I know sounds weird, but It turned out fantastic. We also love garlic so I combine powdered garlic & a little butter and brush the tops. Over the years I have added breadcrumbs, drained canned basil oregano tomatoes and shredded cheese, even celery to the meat sometimes. It is a Very Versatile recipe, don't be afraid to experiment. People fight over the leftovers and I never have tossed any away."
"This is the very first recipe I ever made using puff pastry. I turned out fantastic and is now one of my go to apps! I highly recommend it."
"was a hit with the men in my family-next time I will add shredded cheese."
"My family has requested these at Christmas for the past 7 or 8 years. They are a big hit. The first year I made them, I accidentally used cayenne pepper instead of paprika. A delicious mistake! I now make half of them spicy and half not."
"I made these for my BBQ on Sunday and they were a big hit with everyone. These are simple and delicious."
