Elevate your snacking game with these tantalizing Sourdough Sausage Rolls, where the robust flavors of beef, carrot, onion, and tomato chutney mingle within the embrace of our signature Authentic Sourdough pastry. Delightfully British, these rolls present a harmony of savory goodness encased in flaky puff pastry.

Unveiling the Essence of Sausage Rolls: Originating from British culinary traditions, sausage rolls embody a delectable combination of savory sausage filling enveloped in a buttery, flaky puff pastry shell.

Ingredients Needed:

Sourdough Rough Puff Pastry

Sausage meat

Dried herbs and spices

Baking with Sourdough Discard

Incorporating Sourdough Discard: Harnessing the tangy essence of sourdough discard enriches the pastry with a subtle cheesy undertone, enhancing the overall flavor profile. Whether sourced freshly or from older discard, the result is a delectable bake that tantalizes the taste buds.

How To Make:

Step-by-Step Guide:

Crafting the Dough: Blend butter into dry ingredients, then infuse with sourdough discard and water. Chill the dough, allowing it to rest and develop its flavors.

First Fold: Roll out the dough into a large rectangle, fold in the shorter ends, and envelop in plastic wrap for refrigeration.

Second Fold: Repeat the process, ensuring even distribution of butter throughout the dough. Chill and repeat folding for optimal texture.

Preparation: Chill the dough further, then commence the filling creation.

Shaping: Divide the dough, roll into rectangles, and generously fill with the savory sausage mixture. Seal and brush with egg for a golden finish.

Baking: Slice the rolls, then bake to golden perfection, ensuring the center reaches the desired temperature for a delectable outcome.

Pro Tips:

Opt for precise ingredient measurement by weighing instead of using cups or tablespoons.

Both active sourdough starter and discard can be utilized interchangeably.

In the absence of sourdough discard, a simple flour-water mixture can suffice.

Reheating Recommendations: For optimal enjoyment, reheat the sausage rolls in an air fryer or conventional oven, avoiding the microwave to preserve their delightful texture and flavor.
