Anyone got a recipe so I can make them myself?

Oh they are delicious, haven't had one in a long time (over a year) and currently on a diet so unlikely to taste one for a good while yet.
Greggs sausage roll and a mug of tea - mmmmmmmm!

You can buy them frozen from Iceland, apparently - presumably they have cooking instructions so I think that's all the recipe you need to get the authentic article in the comfort of your own home.

Whether they taste the same I don't know - in the same way that fish& chips really does have to be eaten in the open air out of newspaper (ideally on a windy seafront fending off gulls for best effect), surely a Greggs really needs to be eaten in a street, ideally pushing a buggy?

No I've no buggy Grimma and am sure they taste just as delicious. Not sure how the Iceland ones will fare.

I'm not sure that even a greggs sausage rolls is worth venturing into Iceland, thanks though Grimma. My dd2 is too big for her pushchair now, is that the death knell for sausage rolls consumption then? <wails>

I heard on another thread that the Iceland ones are good. Greasy and everything! grin

Oh I forgot. I rather like Greggs sausage rolls too.

LoonyRationalist Sun 05-Feb-12 09:59:13

You know I'm really holding out for a recipe anyone?

Non chippy Holland pies BeerTricks - you go too too far.

LR next you will be saying David Cameron is doing a good job shock

Hair, it's the grease that I think is the tricky bit to get right.

I have never tasted one sad.

I presume they are an English thing? We get frozen findus ones, which I suspect are a bit like Iceland.

LoonyRationalist Sun 05-Feb-12 10:05:13

Magna, fuck off to the kingdom of fuck and when you get there, fuck off some more, you go too far ;)

I prefer Greggs pasties to sausage rolls though

Maryz Sun 05-Feb-12 10:11:04

I suspect Loony is no longer a lurker grin

LoonyRationalist Sun 05-Feb-12 10:14:13

MaryZ - you may have unleashed a monster!

LR did you mean to sound so rude?

TheOneWithTheHair Sun 05-Feb-12 10:39:46

Bugger bugger bugger. Missed opportunities.

Fantastic flat!! Sorry been gone a bit, had to play in the snow with the children. If only I had found MN pre children, I'd have had lots more time to waste on here contribute

I think the Iceland/ greggs ones are really nice and very convenient- well worth a trysmile

Now that i've made sausage rolls myself, I cant believe how silly easy it is.
Buy shop bought puff pastry. Cut it into however many sausage rolls you want. Brush one end with egg. Put a sausage in (i'm in Germany so use little Nurnberger sausages - you can get them in Lidl in the UK). Roll the pastry round the sausage. Put in the fridge for 30 mins then brush all over with egg then in the oven for 20 - 30 mins. And they taste great.

I don't like greggs sausage rolls because they are too watery. I'm a cooplands girl now grin
