a question about sausage rolls

firstly, I am in the US Midwest, and I have accepted the likelihood I will never travel to the UK. I still, a bit obsessively read about many things about the UK.

Sausage rolls have caught my fancy,however, I checked getting them sent to me from the UK is not possible.

So I got a good quality pre made puff pastry sheet(I am not a good baker) and a vegan italian sausage, I mix the sausage with my spices and minced onion, make a 10cm thin log, place that in a pre cut sheet, wrap that around the sausage, apply egg was and bake.


Is this in short the way to go.

thank you in advance, all advice considered.

1. I made Jamie Oliver's sausage roll

this past week. We loved it. It seriously didnít take but a few minutes to throw together. I saw him make it on his Instagram page...it was slightly different from the one he makes on YouTube but you get the idea. He talks about making it your own with the ingredients you like. Have fun!

I made this version:

4. Sir Terry wrote over 30 novels set in quasi-medieval place,

A thinly disguised Britain. One of his recurring characters was a street vendor who sold sausages (of best-not-inquired provenance) inna bun. The vegan version contained rocks. If you acquired your sausage rolls in a restaurant, they probably donít bear much resemblance to siabs, thankfully. Yours sound good!

5. Pratchett was probably playing with the sometimes dubious reputation of British sausages

(nowadays generally ill-deserved as there are some very good artisan versions around, even in supermarkets).

At one time, sausages were referred to as "bags of mystery" because of their veiled contents.

There is a an American version of the British sausage roll known as "pigs in a blanket", which encases a hot dog or other type of sausage in a biscuit or croissant dough.

As an illustration of some of the pitfalls of two nations divided by a single language, in the UK "pigs in a blanket" refers to a sausage wrapped in a rasher of bacon.

6. Probably. Also, his street vendor was a totally unscrupulous marketer

Could have held a position in the last administration. In fiction, though, we see him rise through his chicanery, only to smack back down on the pavement and once again haul out his sausage inna bun tray. Satisfying.

CMOT Dibbler, his name was, for his patter along the lines of "5 for tuppence, and that's cutting me own throat."

7. I think that's just a hot dog

which is, after all, an actual bun, and is well known for being sold as street food. And the contents of frankfurters don't exactly have a stellar reputation either.
