Indulge in these classic Gluten Free Sausage Rolls, golden and puffed, boasting a subtly flavored meat filling created entirely from scratch. The gluten free shortcrust pastry offers a light and flaky texture, enveloping minced pork seasoned with onions, garlic, and fresh herbs like sage and parsley.

Whether served warm straight from the oven as an appetizer or snack, or accompanied by a light salad for a brunch option, these savory rolls are reminiscent of miniature meat pies.

These sausage rolls represent an authentic British classic, perfect for holidays or brunch. What’s great about these gluten free sausage rolls is that they work well at cocktail parties. People can easily graze on them, making the sausage rolls a great appetizer.


These flavorful sausage rolls are best served hot and straight out of the oven, although the savory snack is almost as delicious at room temperature.

When I began developing this recipe for Gluten-Free Sausage Rolls, uncertainty lingered regarding the outcome. My initial focus was on achieving a flaky and light texture for the gluten free pastry.

Choosing to steer clear of pre-packaged sausage meat from the butcher, my preference stemmed from a desire to infuse my own flavors and avoid the often excessive salt content in commercially available sausage meat.

While gluten free sausage meat is readily available in many butcher stores today, my commitment to freshness led me to create the meat filling entirely from scratch.

For those seeking a time-saving option, the gluten free sausage meat can be substituted for the homemade filling in this recipe.

To maintain a light consistency in the meat filling, I introduced a handful of oats, serving as a wholesome replacement for traditional breadcrumbs commonly found in sausage roll fillings.

For those who prefer gluten free breadcrumbs, simply swap the oats with gluten free breadcrumbs mixed with one tablespoon of water.

My choice of oats not only contributes to a healthier option but also adds fiber. In my experience, many gluten free breadcrumbs are laden with fats, table salt, and starch, often falling short in flavor. Hence, I’ve found oats to be a more appealing and nutritious alternative.

Preheat your oven to around 350 F (175 C).

Place the sausage rolls on a baking sheet, leaving space between them.

Heat them in the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until they are thoroughly heated.

This method helps to retain the crispiness of the pastry.


If you’re short on time, you can use a microwave.

Place the sausage rolls on a microwave-safe plate.

Heat on medium power for about 45 seconds, checking periodically to avoid overcooking.

Keep in mind that the pastry may not remain as crisp as when using the oven.

Air Fryer:

If you have an air fryer, it’s an excellent option for reheating, as it can help maintain the pastry’s crispiness.

Preheat the air fryer to 350 F (175 C).

Place the sausage rolls in the air fryer basket and heat for about 5-8 minutes until heated through.

Toaster Oven:

Similar to the oven method, you can use a toaster oven.

Preheat the toaster oven to 350 F (175 C).

Place the sausage rolls on a baking sheet and heat for 8-10 minutes.

I went online to Amazon to purchase the Cup4Cup flour and it is no longer available. Any other recommendations for flaky pastry flour?


chicken sounds delicious, I will try that next time. Thank you


I can’t believe that someone has actually created a delicious gluten-free sausage roll recipe. I have tried many versions, but this one is by far the best one. The only thing I changed is I used ground chicken and I did use GF bread crumbs...super delicious!


thank you for your comment, and I am so pleased that you enjoyed them.


I made these yesterday these sausage rolls are the best gluten-free sausage rolls I have ever tasted. Had a couple leftover for this morning, I microwaved them for a few seconds and they are just as delicious. THANK YOU THANK YOU! I can finally have the back on my favourite foods to eat :-)
