Sausage rolls have always been my weakness. Not only am I a big sausage fan, but I also LOVE pastry.

So, you probably won’t be so surprised to read that my first ever job was in Greggs. Although, I hated that job.

Even now as a vegan, I still love sausage rolls. And I think the vegan versions are just as tasty and drool-worthy. I personally like to make my own, because they taste so good straight out of the oven.

I make these vegan sausage rolls using pre-made pastry sheets and my own vegan sausage mix. They are really easy and simple to make. Just don’t overdo it, because well, they aren’t that healthy.

Bonus: You can also really easily make these gluten-free if you use Jus Rol’s gluten-free puff pastry sheets. In fact, the photo I have used for this recipe shows my gluten-free version.

Frequently asked questions

Here are my answers to all your vegan sausage roll FAQs.

What is the meat in a vegan sausage roll?

This really depends on the vegan sausage roll. The majority of shop-bought vegan sausage rolls will use a vegan pork sausage alternative or vegan mince meat. You can also find some healthier alternatives that use vegetables instead.

I personally enjoy making mine with soya mince and mushrooms. The mix helps to add umami flavour to the sausage roll ‘meat’.

Is a vegan sausage roll healthier than a normal one?

I wouldn’t call any sausage roll ‘healthy’ because they are all made using pastry, which is high in fat. That being said, animal-based versions are higher in saturated fats than vegan versions. Plus vegan versions often use a blend of legumes, vegetables and fake meats. So they are healthier than non-vegan sausage rolls, but still not ‘healthy’ because of the pastry.
