Sausage Rolls with Native Cinnamon Myrtle & Roasted Wattleseed
Whilst it may seem and look humble, the sausage roll is anything but. In fact, for many it’s considered quite the delicacy, and just as many have boasted to have crafted the best.
But we’ve upped the sausage roll game with these juicy, slightly sweet, and well seasoned Pork, Caramelised Apple & Onion Sausage Rolls with Native CinnamonMyrtle and Wattleseed. Made with free-range pork mince, deliciously caramelized apple and onion, and fragrant native herbs and spices – then wrapped in a golden brown, flaky puff pastry. It’s a big call, but we’re going to say it anyway – these are the best sausage rolls you’ve ever tasted!
