Ah… the sausage roll. It's a staple of British snacking and a convenient picnic food. Never heard of them? Here's the Wikipedia definition:

sausage roll is a British savory pastry snack, popular in Commonwealth nations and beyond. A miniature version can be served as buffet or party food. The basic composition of a sausage roll is sheets of puff pastry formed into tubes around sausage meat and glazed with egg or milk before being baked. They can be served either hot or cold. In the 19th century, they were made using shortcrust pastry instead of puff pastry.”

The “pastry” in my version is actually adapted from the low carb classic, FatHead dough. I mentioned this dough before when I made my yummy Low Carb Pigs in Blankets, and you can You can read more about it in my Ultimate Guide to FatHead Dough – now with video tutorial! It's essentially a mix of melted mozzarella cheese with cream cheese, almond flour, and egg. It really works! I'll admit it's not the same as the flaky pasty of the high carb original version, but the mild cheese flavor is a very welcome addition!

So try it out! These low carb sausage rolls make great snacks as well as being great for lunch boxes and parties. And they freeze well, too!

How to Make Low Carb Sausage Rolls

To make the dough, place shredded mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, then cook for another 30 seconds. Add some almond flour, a beaten egg, salt and pepper, and stir well.These low carb sausage rolls are my version of the classic British snack!

When everything is fully combined, leave to cool slightly, then knead it with your hands to form a smooth (although rather sticky!) dough. Roll it out onto a rectangle – I confess I used a non stick silicone mat as a surface, and sprayed my non-stick rolling pin with olive oil spray to get it rolled out well! Slice it into two sections horizontally.

Season some raw ground pork sausage meat generously with salt and pepper, and divide the mixture between the two lengths of dough, placing the meat in the middle.These low carb sausage rolls are my version of the classic British snack!

Roll the dough around the meat, pinching the join of the dough together with your fingers. Turn it over and cut each log into 8 pieces. Slash the top of each one twice.These low carb sausage rolls are my version of the classic British snack! Keto, gluten free and LCHF recipe with less than 1g net carb per sausage roll!

Place the sausage rolls on a baking sheet (I used another silicone mat!) and bake in a preheated oven for around 15 minutes, or until the center of the pork has reached at least 160F – use a probe thermometer to check this!These low carb sausage rolls are my version of the classic British snack!

Wasn’t convinced these were going to work. Was a little lazy and used ready seasoned gluten free sausage meat. Was very happy when I opened the oven and they looked amazing. Got the family to taste and everyone (including my sceptical daughter) throughly enjoyed them. Will definitely make these again. On a side note, I’m going to take them on a picnic tomorrow so I’m hoping they stay delish until then.

I think I have gone wrong, my pastry was very wet and just checked them in the oven and the pastry is sliding of the meat lol, should I have used more almond flour, in in UK so dont use cups often as measurements Please let me where I have gone wrong so I can try and make them look as they should, I'm sure they will taste delicious.....from Joy

Oh no! Can I ask what cheese you used? This isn't the first time that I've heard of issues from someone in the UK so I'd love to figure it out!

These are amazing have tried low carb sausage rolls before but they were not nice but you would think you are eating real pastry with these one. Just wondering do you think they would freeze ok?

I haven't tried freezing them I'm afraid - there never seems to be leftovers!!! If you try it, let me know - I can't see why it wouldn't work!

Hello I’m fairly new to keto. Is the carbs 5g right or do you have to take the fiber off that to make it 3 net carbs? These look delicious cannot wait to try these!!

Hi! Most (but not all) people who follow a low carb diet only count net carbs, so it depends which version of the diet you are doing. But yes, to get the net carbs you subtract the fiber from the total carbs. You might find this helpful: https://stepawayfromthecarbs.com/net-carbohydrates-mean/
