These Sausage Rolls are a true classic, puffed and golden with a mildly flavoured meat filling and are made from scratch. The gluten-free shortcrust pastry is light and flaky, and the filling is minced pork seasoned with onions, garlic and fresh herbs such as sage and parsley.

Serve warm right out of the oven as an appetizer, a snack or add a light salad and serve the sausage rolls for brunch. The savoury rolls are like mini meat pies.

Gluten-Free Sausage Rolls are a great appetizer!

With holidays quickly approaching, I wanted to add another true classic like these Sausage Rolls. 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.

In Britain, serving Sausage Roll is a boxing day tradition. I love them when they are hot straight out of the oven, but they are often served at room temperature.

When I started developing this Gluten-Free Sausage Rolls recipe, I wasn’t sure how they would turn out. First, I had to make sure that the gluten-free pastry was flaky and light.

Then, I wanted to avoid using sausage meat from the butcher, mostly because I like to add my flavours, and I find most sausage meat is super salty.

You can find gluten-free sausage meat at most butcher stores these days; however, I like everything as fresh as possible. This is why I made the meat filling fresh and from scratch.

If you want to save time, you can replace gluten-free sausage meat for the filling in this recipe.

To keep the meat filling light, I added a handful of oats. The oats are replacing breadcrumbs, an ingredient that is often used in sausage roll meat filling.

If you prefer to use gluten-free bread crumbs, replace the oats with 1/3 cup of gluten-free bread crumbs mixed with one tablespoon of water.

I used oats because they are healthier, and they include fiber. Most gluten-free bread crumbs are made with fats, table salt, starch and honestly, and in my opinion, as of yet, I have not found gluten-free bread crumbs that taste all that good.

STEP FOUR: Using the parchment paper, fold the pastry over the meat filling to form a log and pinch to seal — chill. Brush the top surface of each roll with remaining egg mixture. Using a sharp knife, cut the rolls into desired lengths

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 :-)
