Brioche sausage roll.


I do love a sausage roll, but sometimes I’d like to be a little more sophisticated. Why not simply upgrade the sausage or upgrade the casing. This evening, at Mintcustard Mansions the outer layer got the makeover, next time I may well go for broke and change the sausage too.

Brioche sausage roll


How to.

  • Add the 1 tsp of sugar and the yeast to the warm milk and leave to activate.
  • Sift the flour, salt and sugar into a big bowl. Stir in the yeast and the beaten eggs. Combine well.


  • Tip onto a floured surface and knead gently for 5 minutes.
  • Take the butter and knob at a time and using your hands work into the dough.
  • When all combined, take this very sticky dough and knead again for ten minutes.
  • Place in a buttered bowl, cover and leave to rise for an hour and a half or until doubled in size.


  • Use this time to cook the sausages and allow them to cool.
  • Once risen, knock back and encase the sausages with the brioche dough.


  • Preheat the oven to 200c.
  • Glaze with the beaten egg and leave to rise for 45 minutes.


  • Once risen bake for 20 minutes until golden and crusty.


  • Allow to cool slightly and serve with salad and a spicy chutney.
