MEAT FREE SAUSAGE ROLLS

Family favourite right here. These are my go to for a simple dinner. Packed with veggies but the kids, the neighbours, the husband would NEVER know.

Make them fresh or freeze them off for an easy dinner from the freezer.

Don't bother yourself too much with the ingredients, nearly everything can be substituted for something else. Look through the fridge and pantry and see what you can use instead.

These need to come with a warning - Don’t blame me for how many you eat. My children gobble these down, my dad didn’t believe they were meat free and I would happily replace all my meals in a day with them. ⁣

I make a double batch and freeze off the prepared rolls. If you want to try this too do all the steps up until the egg wash, wrap them back in the plastic backing from the pastry and freeze in desired quantities. Pull from freezer, give them a quick egg wash and then cook frozen rolls at 180° for 40/45 minutes or until browned.⁣
