Posted Jan 26, 2009 in England.
Having left England in 2001, one of the foods I miss is the venerable sausage roll. When I worked in London, my local shopping center had a bakery that sold five, freshly-baked sausage rolls for just £1. I doubt they are still as cheap as that, but they sure tasted good. Yesterday, I had a go at making some for myself:
They turned out reasonably well; however, they were handicapped by the sausage meat, which is a little spicier than I would like. British sausage meat is quite mild, but it is devilishly hard to get that sort of stuff in the US, unless you make it yourself. Nevertheless, they were quite delicious. I plan to experiment with varying the filling.
