I’ve always loved snack foods, especially while I was pregnant. If it’s small bites, even better. I also love quick foods, so, naturally, this recipe for gluten-free sausage rolls is perfect. Best yet, it’s made with vegetarian sausage so that you can serve it to the majority of your guests! Let’s dive in.
Can Celiacs Eat Sausages?
Most of the time, yes. However, a lot of sausages use gluten-flour as it helps solidify the sausage and keep it bound together (in addition to the casing). If you speak to a butcher and or whomever you buy sausage from, you can enquire. However, Beyond Meat’s sausages (all flavors) are gluten-free so it’s not a concern if you use their products.
Why Veggie Sausage Rolls?
It makes it a more universal appetizer without compromising on flavor and texture! The Hot Italian Sausage by Beyond Meat is a perfect balance of heat, all the while tasting and looking like meat. You won’t miss it.
Are Sausage Rolls British or Australian?
Wrapping meat in a pastry dates well back into antiquity. However, the modern sausage roll is actually thought to have originated in France during the 19th century. They grew in popularity in London in the 1800s as well as becoming a British street food and snack. As Australia is part of the Commonwealth, it’s reasonable that it’s a desirable food in all of those nations as well!
Why Do You Add Breadcrumbs to Gluten-Free Sausage Rolls?
Breadcrumbs help lock in moisture and keep the mixture together. Similar to the egg, it is a binding agent. Just use gluten-free breadcrumbs and or a gluten-free panko!
Are Pigs in a Blanket The Same as Sausage Rolls?
No, they’re not. Pigs in a blanket are more commonly made with frankfurters and or hotdogs. While sausage rolls, as the name states, are made with sausage (be it real sausage and or vegetarian sausage). In the U.S.A., pigs in a blanket are encased in a pastry and in the UK, they’re wrapped in bacon.
