Homemade Beef & Vegetable Sausage Rolls

An easy and delicious Homemade Beef & Vegetable Sausage Roll recipe that is packed with veggies, and perfect for both dinners and school lunches too!

Friday night dinners in our home typically mean something fun like pizza, Mexican, or pasta, however it’s usually no side servings of vegetables… but that doesn’t mean no veg! My Homemade Beef and Vegetable Sausage Rolls are packed full of veggies, and the kids absolutely love them!

Homemade Beef & Vegetable Sausage Rolls

You can grate and finely dice the vegetables in the recipe, however I put mine in the Thermomix (you could also use a food processor) and blitz for a few seconds.

I then place all ingredients into a bowl. I put eggs in and give them a little whisk before mixing all ingredients together with my hands.

Pastry sheets can then be cut in half to make 2 long rolls per sheet, with the mixture divided evenly into 12 portions. I then shape each portion into long logs, and place two portions on each pastry sheet.

Brush one whisked egg onto the edge of the pastry sheets to help them stick together after rolling.

Roll pastry over sausage mixture and slice into six even portions. Egg wash the top.

Sprinkle your sausage rolls with sesame seeds.

Then bake them in the oven until brown and cooked through.

When we have my homemade sausage rolls I always make a double batch then freeze some, this means I can easily pop them in the oven one night before school and give the kiddies something different for their school lunch.

These were a bit fiddlier than I expected (I accidentally whizzed my veggies to mush in the Thermomix!), but once they were cooked- delicious! My kids can’t stop devouring them, and I’ve got heaps in the freezer for my next ‘I can’t be bothered’ easy night. Great recipe! 😀

Amy September 2, 2014 - 3:01 PM

Also, I’ve just realised- the recipe says to add two eggs into the bowl, but your photo above has four?

Katrina September 3, 2014 - 12:01 PM

Hi Amy, they are very yummy i agree! Yes it is 4 eggs, i just had a quick look on the recipe to double check so for any confusion.

Jennifer December 31, 2014 - 10:01 AM

Step 5 refers to 2 eggs and then step 6 refers to whisk the eggs. Assume step 5 shouldn’t include the eggs? I love this recipe and always have some rolls frozen as a back up plan 🙂

Samantha September 12, 2014 - 11:49 PM

Could I use 1kg of beef mince instead of using sausage meat?

Katrina September 15, 2014 - 10:02 AM

Hi Samantha, Yes i can’t see why you couldn’t. Let me know how they turn out.:)

Ciara February 15, 2018 - 6:54 PM

I used 1kg of beef mince in this recipe today (instead of sausage and beef mince) and it turned out great! I just blitzed the mince in a food processor so it was a bit smoother.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 16, 2018 - 9:22 AM

Oh that’s a great tip Ciara. Thanks for sharing

Angela October 19, 2014 - 3:30 PM

I’ve made these twice now… Very popular with the family. The second batch had a lot of liquid while they were cooking but I rescued them by cooking them for a bit on a wire rack to dry the bottom. All good still gobbled up.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 21, 2014 - 1:40 PM

They are so yummy, very popular with our family too.:)

Melissa June 3, 2019 - 10:46 AM

Can you freeze these?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 3, 2019 - 2:36 PM

Most definitely Melissa!

Melissa Small June 4, 2019 - 12:31 PM

Do i Cook them first then freeze ?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 5, 2019 - 9:20 AM

I cook mine first and then freeze them – that way they can be popped frozen into my kid’s lunchboxes and they are defrosted by lunchtime (my kids like them cold). You could also freeze them prior to cooking if this works better for you Melissa.

Samantha October 22, 2014 - 1:54 PM

Thank you Katrina, I finally made these using 1kg mince instead of mix with sausage mix and they were so delicious! They will differently be on my favourites list

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 23, 2014 - 10:17 AM

Fantastic! Yes they are also a huge hit in our family too.:)

Misty January 18, 2015 - 12:15 PM

These look great! I’ve been searching for freezer friendly food for lunchboxes this year as my oldest starts school! Trying to plan ahead to keep her lunchbox interesting AND healthy. These will be great to mix things up every now and then 🙂
So just clarifying… Can these be cooked from frozen or do I defrost before popping them in the oven? Thanks heaps!!!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 19, 2015 - 9:41 AM

Misty, i like to cook them before freezing them. Then when you are ready for them you just have to defrost.

Rebekah January 24, 2015 - 12:36 PM

I dont always have sliced bread on hand but I do have a supply of homemade breadcrumbs I keep. What would the weight equivalent be that is needed? Thanks.

Bec February 2, 2015 - 1:41 PM

according to this site: http://www.howmuchisin.com/produce_converters/bread

it’s about 3/4 cup

kerrie February 15, 2015 - 6:41 PM

I just need clarification on 2 things please .

1. How many eggs is it. 2 or 4.

2. Are they cooked before freezing or not.

Thank you.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 16, 2015 - 9:03 AM

Hi Kerrie, It is 4 egss ( sorry i know the picture shows 2 ) and yes i cook them before freezing.:)

kerrie February 16, 2015 - 2:52 PM

Thank you Katrina.

Angela March 13, 2015 - 1:46 PM

Thankyou for another great recipe. When you say you put these in your childrens lunch box, Do you put them in a thermos – hot? Or do your children eat them cold?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 16, 2015 - 9:18 AM

Hi Angela, My kids take them cold, they are just as nice.:)

Lauren August 4, 2015 - 11:43 AM

Made these last night and they are fantastic! Half were gone when I just pulled them out of the oven! Put some
In the freezer and took some to work tonight! Highly recommended! I also put extra vegies in by accident but they still tasted great!

Kate - Kat's Assistant August 6, 2015 - 11:49 AM

Love the extra veg idea, Lauren! They are so delicious not to have at least one when they come out of the oven.:)

Sandra August 9, 2015 - 2:40 PM

I used 2portions and 1 square of pastry to make 12
I froze the remaining remaining portions and took out 2 last night to defrost them
Just cooked fresh for lunch
There are only 2 of us and this worked well for us.

Kate - Kat's Assistant August 10, 2015 - 11:30 AM

Great idea, Sandra. They freeze really well and re a great idea for lunches. We occasionally have them on weekends.:)

Kaylene January 20, 2016 - 12:04 PM

Hi Kat,
Do you put these in your kiddies lunch boxes still frozen? are they defrosted by lunch and are they ok not being refrigerated until they eat them at lunch?
Thanks 🙂

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 20, 2016 - 8:23 PM

Hi Kaylene, no I would take them out of the freezer the night before and put an icebrick in the lunchbox, or you can heat them up in the morning and place hot in a thermos.

marz February 18, 2016 - 1:23 PM

hi how long can they be kept in the freezer till?

Imogen January 25, 2016 - 10:24 PM

Thankyou for this recipe can’t wait to gobble them up and rummage through the resf of your site 🙂

Pamela February 7, 2016 - 10:05 PM

Thanks for another great recipe Kat.

I think the confusion about the eggs doesn’t just come from the photo of the two eggs, but in step 5 you actually say to add two eggs, instead of saying four eggs.

Also, this together with whisking the eggs after adding them in also seems to have caused some confusion so maybe the ingredients list could have “4 eggs, whisked” and Step 5 amended to say “four eggs” and Step 6 removed. Then there would be no confusion?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 8, 2016 - 7:35 PM

Ooh goodness me, thank you so much Pamela for picking this up, I’ve just fixed it.

Therese May 10, 2016 - 10:12 AM

My kids love these sausage rolls!! They can be a bit fussy with some vegetables so I chop up whatever veggies I have in the fridge and put them in my bullet juicer and pulse them until they are all combined. This makes the veggies completely invisible! I also add some quinoa flakes and top with black chia seeds as well as sesame seeds (the kids think they are poppy seeds!). I pop them into their lunchboxes straight from the freezer and find they are defrosted and good to go by lunchtime, although now winter is approaching I might have to invest in a good thermos and heat them up in the morning.

Sharon Carrington January 19, 2017 - 3:50 PM

I am definitely going to try these !! If I use packet breadcrumbs, what would the quantity be please? Thank you

Stacey April 27, 2017 - 1:08 PM

I finally got around to making these and they were huge hit!
Our 4 year old all but demanded them for lunch today.
I will certainly be making these again!

Grace Svab-Superina September 19, 2017 - 8:57 AM

Hi Katrina
These sausage rolls sound delicious. I am a bit confused about the whole food safety issue, especially when it comes to my children’s lunchboxes eg. cold food eaten cold and hot food eaten hot. Are you able to do a segment/article on food safety for lunchboxes?
Greatly appreciated,

Katrina - The Organised Housewife September 21, 2017 - 9:37 AM

Hi Grace, I personally place cold packs in the kids lunch bags and they enjoy eating them cold. As I cook them in my own kitchen I feel confident that they can eat them cold

Nicole September 21, 2017 - 2:24 PM

We made these today as part of our “Footy Week” at home school. I used a pork/beef mince blend (also sold at Coles) and blitzed it a bit in the thermomix first to make it a bit smooshier (if that’s a word) . We really like the way they turned out, and it’s so easy to hide veggies in. Miss7 was delighted to not only make these but eat them (even though I threw in a heap of mushrooms which she detests). Thank you…

Cara November 26, 2017 - 12:38 PM

Do you need to salt the zucchini to remove some of the moisture at all or are they just fine as is also how long and at what speed do you blitz in thermomix please?- i have a tendency to over blitzing if i dont have a guide.
Thank you ?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife November 28, 2017 - 2:23 PM

Hi Cara, I didn’t need to add salt to my zucchini but I just squeeze and squeeze and squeeze the juice out

Naomi July 8, 2018 - 3:44 PM

I used kangaroo mince instead (I was looking for a healthier and more wholesome meat) it worked out very well and couldn’t notice the difference.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife July 9, 2018 - 9:23 AM

wow, thanks for sharing! I haven’t tried them with Kangaroo mince but I’m glad to hear it worked out

Sally July 25, 2018 - 12:23 PM

Just made these for the kiddies. They’ve eaten heaps!! Thank you xo

Katrina - The Organised Housewife July 25, 2018 - 1:13 PM

so glad to hear it 🙂

Kate January 16, 2019 - 1:37 PM

To have the for school lunches do you just heat before putting in lunch box to cool throughout the day or do you put in frozen to defrost by their lunch time?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 17, 2019 - 9:52 AM

Yes I put in frozen and they defrost by lunch time 🙂

Elisha January 28, 2019 - 2:03 PM

Hey! I love your ideas. I am going to try your recipes as they are freeze friendly. So with these sausage rolls can I freeze them and pop them directly into his lunchbox or do I need to defrost the previous night and heat in the morning? It should be fine to pop your quiche, cheesy meatballs and potato bake cold in his lunchbox right? Thanx so much. I nor.ally heat everything before cooking but this seems like the best idea.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 31, 2019 - 12:54 PM

I pop them from freezer into kids lunchboxes and theyre defrosted by lunch time 🙂

Teresa April 18, 2019 - 10:49 PM

Thanks for this recipe. I tried it out tonight and it was a huge hit. My 3yo asked before we’d even started dinner if we could have them again tomorrow! The hidden veges are also a great bonus for my fussy kids – no one even noticed.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife April 24, 2019 - 3:59 PM

i’m so glad to hear that Teresa!!

Jason July 26, 2019 - 1:48 PM

Just had my son’s 7th birthday, made a batch of these following the recipe with the exception of the onion and garlic which I sweated first in a little olive oil to soften, then cooled them and patted dry with paper towel.

Anyway, they came out absolutely perfect. Many comments from both the kids and the parents saying they were the best sausage rolls they have ever eaten…. I agree.

A fantastic recipe which I am unashamedly stealing and giving credit to your site when asked 🙂

Katrina - The Organised Housewife July 30, 2019 - 9:00 AM

Love hearing feedback like this 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing, and I hope your son had a fabulous birthday. Kat x

Maria August 30, 2019 - 1:55 PM

I am unable to print the recipe. Is it me or is the print “button” malfunctioning?

Julia October 30, 2020 - 3:58 PM

They are delicious! The kids devoured what we served up. We had leftovers the next day

Katrina - The Organised Housewife November 2, 2020 - 2:43 PM

Julie thank you for sharing this feedback 🙂 So happy to hear that the family loved these! Kat x

Bec January 31, 2021 - 12:23 PM

I think I should have squeezed my veggies after blitzing, so much moisture so they are taking FOREVER to cook. But looking forward to having lunches sorted out this week!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 5, 2021 - 8:52 AM

Yes depending on the water content in the vegetables used, sometimes it is helpful to squeeze out the excess moisture. But they will work either way. I hope your family enjoys them for lunches!

LOREN March 8, 2021 - 12:41 AM

Made them here in the US and it was a big hit at my 6 year old’s birthday party! I did blend my veggies into mush, hidden veggies are the best kind 😉 I did add more garlic in my second batch, as well as some red pepper flakes, I needed just a bit more flavor. Delicious recipe!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 11, 2021 - 11:38 AM

So glad you liked them Loren!

Sarah April 19, 2021 - 6:06 PM

We love these in our household, at the start of every school term I make a batch up for lunches – it makes life so much easier having a stock pile of different lunch items in the freezer for school.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife April 22, 2021 - 9:12 AM

I’m so glad to hear you like them Sarah, and I completely agree about the freezer stockpile! Kat x
