We decided to have a Christmas open house and Jonathan was dispatched to the local supermarket to buy some veggie party sausages amongst other stuff. They had run out of those apparently so he came back with 2 packs of these instead. Although perhaps he just agrees with the Christmas number one ” we built this city on sausage rolls”!
Costing £1.75 per pack, they are found in the freezer aisle and with 30 mini sausage rolls per pack they make a good option to keep in your freezer for any time you need to russle up some party food pronto. Bonus is that they cook from frozen in about 25 to 30 mins so super quick too.
They are made from soya protein, wrapped in puff pastry and are suitable for vegans.
I tipped them on a tray, bunged them in the oven and that was pretty much it. They did come out of the oven beige rather than shiny, golden brown and so next time I may try glazing with a little soya milk to see if makes a difference.
I was interested to see what the party guests would make of them. As far as I knew out of a house full of adults and children there was only one other guest who I knew for certain was veggie so would anyone spot anything? Nope! Sixty sausage rolls disappeared like, well like a sausage roll at a party with various comments like “I’ll have another one of them”.
I managed to snaffle one as I put the tray down or there would have been no review. They taste just like a meat party sausage roll to me and I don’t think I would have noticed any difference either. Flaky pastry enveloping a savoury filling that has been well seasoned to give the pepperiness you would expect from a meat sausage. Well done Tescos!
