Sausage rolls are a great food item to have at parties or if you want some nice homemade comfort food. They are tasty, easy to make and just one of those foods that everyone loves.
The good thing is that sausage rolls can be frozen quite easily and the process is not over complicated. So if you have a big party coming up or made extra that you won’t be eating anytime soon, pop them in the freezer for use at a later date.
Why Freeze Sausage Rolls?
Most people freeze sausage rolls for parties that are coming up in a couple of days. It helps cut down on some of the cooking for the party and because they freeze so well, they just have to be reheated and you are in action.
Some foods when placed in the freezer somewhat loses their taste and texture. This is not so of sausage rolls and if you pop them in the oven, they will taste the same as rolls freshly made.
How To Freeze Sausage Rolls
There are two schools of thoughts when it comes to freezing sausage rolls:
Cook and freeze
Don’t fully cook them and freeze
For some people, they would rather finish it off in the oven, while others have no problem just reheating them.
Depending on which method you go with, fully cook/partially cook the sausage rolls.
Let them cool, before attempting to prepare them for storage in the freezer.
Wrap the sausage rolls in plastic wrap and place inside a freezer safe container or a Ziploc freezer storage bag.
When stored correctly, you can keep sausage rolls in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Thawing It Out
This will depend on if you plan on eating them without reheating or you plan to reheat them.
If you aren’t going to be reheating, you can take sausage rolls out of the freezer and while still wrapped, let them set at room temperature till fully defrosted.
If you plan on reheating the sausage rolls, then you could place them in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 35-40 minutes until they are piping hot
