Spicy sausage triangles.


I love a bargain me. I also hate having to throw away unloved vegetables that have lurked in the bottom of the fridge for a day too long.bargainThis recipe for spicy sausage triangles came about when a bargain and a few slightly wrinkly vegetables collided on the kitchen work surface. Add in a pack of sausages and you have a fantastic lunch dish when hot or a picnic treat when cold. This twist on a sausage roll echoes the samosa shape and it’s spicyness too. This short YouTube video will help you if you are unsure how to fold samosas or pastilles. It is taken from L’atelier des chefs YouTube channel.

1pack Filo pastry
1 400g pack of sausages, skinned
2 spring onions chopped
2 tomatoes skinned, seeded and chopped
1 green chilli finely chopped
Salt and pepper

50g butter, melted
Poppy seeds to decorate.

How to

  • Pre heat the oven to 190c
  • Skin the sausages into a large bowl.
  • Chop all the vegetables finely and add into the sausages with the seasoning.
  • Combine well.
  • Unroll the filo pastry and cover with a wet tea towel.
  • Take three sheets of pastry, lay ontop of each other and divide into six equal rectangles.
  • Brush the pastry with melted butter.
  • Place a dessert spoon of the mixture at one end of the rectangle.
  • Fold the pastry over to make a triangle at one end.
  • Brush the top with butter and fold again.
  • Continue until the pastry rectangle is used up.
  • Repeat five more times, then uncover the remaining pastry and do it all again six times more.
  • Place the triangles onto a baking tray, scatter with poppy seeds and bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve hot, warm or cold as you wish.


If you have fewer sausages you can bulk out the triangles with finely chopped potato or other vegetables. Apples would taste great in this mixture I think as well, something I might try in the future.

Does anyone have any other filling suggestions for me? Sweet? Savoury? a combination of the two?


I suddenly saw that Elizabeth’s kitchen Diary was hosting Credit Crunch Munch for the remains of August and September. Surely these fit the bill I thought.   Credit Crunch Munch is a food blogging challenge by the fantastic foodies Helen at Fuss Free Flavours and Camilla at Fab Food 4 All.

      They make a change from a sausage roll and you can change them depending on what you have. I made mine with the bargain pastry I’d popped in the freezer and a pack of good, but again reduced sausages. The whole lot came to about £1.50 for 12 sausage triangles. That’s 12.5p per triangle, a bargain.

    35 p filo pastry! What a bargain, and such a great use for it too. Love your Credit Crunch Munch entry, thanks for sharing! 🙂
