Roasted mediterranean vegetable sausage rolls.

Much as I love a proper school dinner, I often am too busy to get to the dinner hall to eat one. Lunch has to be portable, filling and preferably something I eat with one hand whilst marking with the other. I have had enough of sandwiches, cup a soups and crackers. Then I spotted a couple of lone sausages in the freezer and the sausage roll was born. Using a few of Sainsburys frozen chargrilled mediterranean vegetables to add another texture and a deeper flavour my lunches this week have been saved. I made my own pastry but you could of course buy ready made.

Roasted mediterranean vegetable sausage rolls.

I quantity pastry – made with 200g flour and 100g butter

4 sausages

2 shallots or 1 small onion chopped

1 cup Sainsburys frozen chargrilled mediterranean vegetables.

1 tsp oil

1 egg – beaten for egg wash

How to…

  • Preheat the oven to 180c
  • Heat the oil in a non stick frying pan. Tip in the chopped shallot or onion and the vegetable mix. Cook gently unitl defrosted and heated through. Chop and leave to cool.
  • Roll out the pastry into a rectangle.
  • Squeeze the sausagemeat out of the sausage and place along one side of the pastry.


  • Top the sausagemeat with the vegetables. Run a line of egg wash along the pastry. Fold the pastry over and sea with the tines of a fork.
  • Make slits in the pastry top to allow the steam to escape and egg wash.
  • Place on a parchment lined tray.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
  • Eat hot or cold.

I was not asked by Sainsburys to give a positive review of their frozen products but I was given vouchers to cover the cost of ingredients.
