How To Store Leftover Sausage Rolls

Leftover sausage rolls can be stored in the fridge, once cool. Just wrap in aluminum foil or plastic wrap and eat the next day cold for lunch.

Can I Freeze Sausage Rolls?

Yes, you can freeze sausage rolls. It’s best to freeze your sausage rolls before they have been cooked. Just pop them in the freezer on a baking tray first, then once they’re frozen, you can wrap them in greaseproof paper and freeze in a labeled container or bag.

However, you can freeze cooked sausage rolls too, just be sure to let them cool to room temperature first.

Are Sausage Rolls The Same As Pigs In Blankets?

Lots of my American readers ask if British sausage rolls the same as pigs in a blanket? And no they’re not, pigs in blankets is just sausage wrapped in a slice of bacon. A British sausage roll is sausage meat wrapped in puff or shortcrust pastry.
