Sausage rolls with cheese

super easy


Sausage rolls have always been one of my favourite snacks, ever since I was a kid. Once I learned how easy it is to make them yourself, I only ended up loving them even more as it became so easy to add all these amazing flavours. I’ve previously made a few versions already, for example one with black pudding, apple and cranberry but also plain pork sausage rolls and pork, cranberry and red onion sausage rolls. This time though, I’m going with cheese!

In today’s recipe I’m using a cheese that’s I feel is still quite uncommon in Ireland: Emmental, a medium-hard Swiss cheese made from cow’s milk. It’s great in a gratin, fondue or as grated cheese on top of some spaghetti bolognese. It was the first time I ever ate sausage rolls with cheese but oh my goodness! So delicious! You can experiment with other kinds of cheese of course too, I can imagine cheddar being an amazing addition too, but haven’t tried it yet myself. Do let me know in the comments below if you tried it with a different kind of cheese and if you liked it.
