You can find them here, but it's not too common. They're usually found at specialty pubs/restaurants, like the British pub down the street from where I work. They serve sausage rolls along with other Brit pub food. So yeah, since they aren't encountered too often, I can see where a lot of people over here wouldn't know what they are.

I make them occasionally using scone dough.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I tend to avoid them nowadays,especially supermarket ones.They have some right grotty ingredients in them.I used to buy all home-made ones from a butcher until he closed up.My sister makes some excellent home cooked ones but only usually at Christmas.

Woo! it's Christmas soon readytoeat

Um, we call them "pigs in a blanket," which is why Britlanders probably got dumb looks when asked about sausage rolls.

We also have parts of buildings that we live in but don't own, paying rent each month instead of a mortgage. We call them apartments. Those on upper floors are accessed by elevators.

So please tell your reporters that finding out that we don't have flats or lifts isn't really a discovery at all.

I've heard of them. I suppose they're not too common here, but you can't find a mall that doesn't sell hotdogs wrapped in pretzels/bagels which is similar. Aren't they rather common in Canada?

Yup, under either name piggies/rolls. Usually in the deli section
of the grocery store.

We have pigs in blankets but they are cocktail sausages wrapped in bacon. Usually eaten as part of christmas dinner smile

No to corn dogs, which are fried and have a very different taste. Sausage rolls are much more like pastries. Similar to "pigs in a blanket" although the sausage tastes more like a breakfast sausage and they can be meal size. I suppose the sausage type varies. Although I've seen some which are more bun like.

Chucky, if you ever get to Pershore market, the bakery stall there does a mean sausage roll.
I treat myself to one every Friday (oh! what a wild life I lead!)

One the advantages of living in North Atlantic between the UK and mainland North America is that we get most of the food from both sides biggrin

The British deli near my place in Van had awesome sausage rolls up until last summer when a new owner took over. He's a bit of a zealot and pushes the idea of ethical food and the 100 mile diet.

There's nothing ethical about serving his sausage rolls to unsuspecting customers. God awful. The "sausage" is largely breading and if you aren't careful, you might accidentally order a lentil based one.

Still haven't been able to find a suitable replacement. The other British deli shop nearby doesn't make a very good roll. The pastry is overly chewy in some parts and very hard and dense along the bottom edges. Don't really care for her sausage recipe either. It's got an odd texture to it and the flavour is more akin to bovril than a sausage.

Ugh the supermarket ones... After watching Conan's rant on instant noodle cup I swore to never eat instant noodles when I took my postgrad. Little did I know, the rolls would creep up to replace it.

Thus, supermarket sausage rolls is to me what instant noodles is to Conan.
