Sausage rolls are a crowd favourite and with Christmas Day quickly approaching, this recipe is perfect for a delicious and easy lunch or dinner side dish.

The pork sausage helps create the lovely tender filling, while the pumpkin and cumin bring a hint of sweetness and subtle spice to the dish. Serve them up with a dipping sauce of your choice. Dig in!


  • 800g butternut pumpkin, peeled, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1kg pork sausages, casings removed
  • 8 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 sheets frozen puff pastry, partially thawed
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 200C and line three large baking trays with baking paper. 
  2. Place pumpkin, oil and cumin in a bowl. Toss to coat. 
  3. Spread in a single layer on one prepared tray. Season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Then set aside to cool for 15 minutes. 
  5. Place sausage meat in a large bowl and add onion, coriander and two eggs. Using clean hands, mix well to combine. 
  6. Lightly beat remaining egg before placing one pastry sheet on a flat surface. Leaving a 1cm boarder, gently press 1/4 of the sausage mixture over pastry. Top with 1/4 of the pumpkin. 
  7. Fold over pastry to enclose filling. Place, seam-side down, on prepared tray. 
  8. Repeat with remaining pastry, sausage mixture and pumpkin. 
  9. Brush tops of each sausage roll with egg. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
