Lamb, Rosemary & Apple Sausage Rolls

I never thought I’d buy Annabel Langbein’s cookbook The Free Range Cook since I’ve never seen her TV show, or knew anything about her. But I had a quick flick through when I saw the book in the bargain bin at Big W a while ago and realised there were some good recipe in there… ESPECIALLY this one. This one really caught my eye. I LOVE anything with apple in it.

I cannot tell you how awesome these sausage rolls are. I could eat these all day and night until I eventually get sick of them. And when that happened, I’d probably still keep eating them πŸ˜›  I can’t wait to make these again, they could become a Winter staple!

Serve them with a salad or a bowl of your favourite wintery soup.

Print Recipe
Servings 6


  • 400g lamb mince
  • 250g sausage meat, such as pork or beef
  • 1 apple, unpeeled and grated
  • 1 whole egg and 1 egg white
  • 1 small onion, peeled and grated
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • Β½ tsp finely chopped rosemary
  • 3 finely chopped sage leaves
  • 1 tsp fruit chutney or tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 2 sheets flaky pastry


  • Preheat the oven to 200ΒΊC and line baking trays with baking paper.
  • Place the ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands.
  • Roll in the pastry to get the sizes you want. Place on the trays seam side down. Put a hole or a slash in the top of each to allow the steam to escape. Brush the tops with the egg yolk mixed with a tablespoon of water.
  • Bake 20 mins then check if any liquid has come out of the rolls and soak it up with paper towels if there is any. Bake another 10 mins. Adjust the cooking time for the size of the rolls.

    Annabel is great isn’t she. You must have done her proud cause these sausage rolls look beautiful. My favourite soup is any soup someone makes for me!

    Mmm those sausage rolls look delish! I find that if you bake sausage rolls on a rack over the oven tray, you get nice even flakiness and any drippings can just drop away. I will be trying these soon!

    Your recipe makes me salivate already, seems like I’ll be eating a lot when I try making this one. I’ll bring some to my mother on the Mother’s Day. Hope she’ll love this!

    I agree apple works well with so many things – I make a pork, sage and apple sausage roll that is delicious as well (although love the sound of this one)

    Oh man you’re SO experienced with cookbooks I love it. You’ve cooked from so many of us which is a WIN for us too lol! These sounds delicious. And yay for the awesomeness that is the frozen puff pastry lol! Life saver haha

    My favourite soup is definitely pumpkin soup (which is what I thought the above was until I looked closer at the description hehe). And those sausage rolls sound delicious! Might give them a try with beef instead since my mum doesn’t eat lamb… cheers :).
