Ramadan mubarak, everyone! I can’t believe a year went by so fast. Since I get off work an hour early, again I try to make small dishes like appetisers and snacks for breaking fast. I still have a few bottles of Nando’s PERi-PERi sauce in the larder, so I looked through their website for ideas. These sausage rolls looked so yummy, so away I went to Ben’s Independent Grocer during my half-hour afternoon break to buy what I needed.
A few things I did for this recipe: I used chicken cheese sausages and breadcrumbs with Italian herbs, and I think this made the rolls “taste like pizza”. I also used Italian flat-leaf parsley instead of English (I wasn’t sure which one I was supposed to use until I came back and watched the video), which had a stronger flavor I didn’t fancy too much, so I’ll use English parsley next time. In the spirit of Ramadan I gave the dish a slight Middle Eastern twist and used habbatus sauda in place of black sesame seeds.
Mind you this recipe makes quite a lot of filling, and depending on how big your bread is you might end up with multiple rolls instead of just one as stated in the original recipe. I used Massimo white sandwich loaf, and ended up with four rolls in total.
Overall this was a delicious snack, great for moreh and sahur, as well as for potlucks and afternoon tea. Give it a try!
