Lamb and Feta Sausage Rolls


Sausage rolls are so handy to have in the freezer, ready for quick dinners or school lunch boxes.

The puff pastry sheets here come with a thin layer of plastic between each sheet, once I have made the rolls I leave them whole and then re wrap them in this plastic before freezing so I can pull out just one roll if necessary when frozen. Once defrosted, brush with egg and sprinkle a little Za’atar over the top and cut to size before baking.

Makes 16 large sausage rolls and 36 mini rolls.


1kg minced lamb

120g fresh breadcrumbs

400g feta

2 teaspoons sumac

2 tablespoons Za’atar, plus extra

salt and freshly ground pepper

4 sheets frozen puff pastry, defrosted

1 egg, beaten


Combine the lamb, breadcrumbs, feta, sumac,  Za’atar, salt and pepper in a bowl.

Lay out the pastry sheets.

Divide the meat into eight portions, form each portion into a long sausage, the length of your pastry sheet.

Lay one sausage at the top of the sheet and the other at the bottom, repeat with the remaining sausages.

Take a sharp knife and cut the pastry sheet in half. Brush the pastry with egg and roll the pastry to encase the sausage. Repeat with the remaining pastry.

Place the roll, sealed edge down, on a chopping board, brush with egg and sprinkle a little Za’atar over the top, cut into whatever size you like.

Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30mins until golden and cooked through.

  1. I make use of a not too dissimilar recipe for meatless ‘sausage’rolls, which are very popular among vegetarians in Britain. I think that I will try to adapt this recipe as it looks very interesting. I very much like spicy food and this presses all the right buttons for me

    1. Oh Grief, Scouts starts again soon here too Beck! Better stash a few more in my freezer too! Some nights the boys have to eat dinner in their hands while walking to scouts! Hope you have had a restful summer hols. 🙂 Ros.

      1. We’ve had great hols – not really looking forward to the start of term I have to say! Miss Lego is starting high school so it’s all a bit stressful….cooking is definitely a way to relax 🙂

      2. My middle son is off to high school, just realised last night I’ve forgotten to get shoes for all three! Stationary, check, uniforms, check, bus tickets, check but nothing to actually wear on their feet!!! Oops!
