Usually, sausage rolls recipe call for puff pastry, while this recipe uses homemade brioche dough. The sweet dough nicely contrasts the saltiness of the sausages and a spicy mustard adds a little kick to each bite.
They are perfect for a Picnic, a buffet and children’s party.
You can serve them with a regular tomato sauce or with cherry tomatoes, basil and olive oil pesto sauce.
If you are serving them for a buffet you can cut them into small bites so they are easy to pick and only one dip in the sauce is required.
The sausages are precooked 30 minutes before cooked again once they are rolled into the dough.
You can prepare them 1 hour before the party and bake them just before serving.
They are delicious when they are freshly baked and still warm.
I often make these sausage roll recipe when we go out for a picnic, which we do very often here in the South of France.
They are like hotdogs but with a real sausage inside.
My boys love them and I usually have to bring at least 3 each.
This recipe uses the Kenwood bread machine, You can find my review in the link and see what other recipes I make with it.
If you don’t have the bread machine you can find the recipe here:
How to make brioche, or bread rolls’ dough without a bread machine
You just put all the ingredients in the machine and the dough is ready when you need it.
You can prepare the dough in the bread machine using a timer, so they are ready when you want.
The only thing left to do is to prepare the rolls 1 hour before you want to serve them.
Brioche Sausage Rolls Recipe
- 20 sausages or chipolata
- 1 tbsp original English mustard optional
For the dough
- 1 cup milk
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 1 fresh eggs
- 3 1/2 cup flour
- 1/3 cup caster sugar
- 1.5 tsp salt
- 1 package yeast I prefer Active dry
- 1 fresh eggs for the egg wash
- Load the ingredients into the machine and set the program for fresh dough (number 10 for Kenwood). The dough will be ready in 1.5 hours. IMPORTANT: in the bread machine the ingredients should be placed in the exact order as listed above, liquids first.
- Before you take out the dough from the bread machine basket, make sure you have sprinkled the surfaced of the board with plenty of flour. The dough will be sticky so you need to coat it with flour immediately to stop it from sticking to your hands.
- In the meantime cook the chipolata in the oven at 180 C for only 30 minutes, leaving it still slightly pink. Let it cool down completely.
- If you like spicy food (and not serving them to the children), you can cover the sausage with a good spicy English mustard.
- When the dough is ready place it on a floured surface and cut it in 10 slices.
- Cut each slice into two, rolling each piece the same length as the sausage.
- Roll the dough and lay all the sausages on a baking tray
- Brush them with an egg wash.
- If you made some rolls without mustard, sprinkle them with sesame seeds so you distinguish them once they are cooked.
- Once they are ready, let them rest for 30 minutes.
- Cook them in a hot oven for 30 minutes at 180C
- You can serve them whole for a picnic or children’s parties or cut them in smaller sizes for a buffet
