If I have to be honest, these are cheaty sausage rolls but I’m all about short cuts if the end result is a whole lot of delicious, and these sausage rolls are just that, very delicious. If I have the time and my inclination to make my own sausage rolls with filling, I always make these Vegetarian Sausage Rolls because they’re so tasty, no one can believe they’re not meat. Besides, whenever I make my own meat filled sausage rolls, they always end up with a soggy bottom. What’s with that? If you have any tried and tested tips for me, I’d love to hear them!
After all my misadventures with meat filled sausage rolls, I decided to just buy the sausages and roll them myself. The good thing about these sausage rolls is that they take just a few minutes to throw together and they’re super yummy hot or cold. They go great in a lunchbox and make a super supper too but for maximum satisfaction, be sure to use the best quality chipolatas you can find.
Now in this house, we do love a good condiment. So don’t be surprised when I tell you the hero of this dish is the barbecue sauce, it is everything! It’s got a bit of a kick, so if you like your sauce mild and not wild, I suggest reducing the Worcestershire sauce, just a tad. It’s easy to make the sauce on the stove, but it’s even easier in the Thermomix. One thing is for sure, once you’ve made your own barbecue sauce, you’ll never go back to shop bought!

Brush with beaten egg and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until sausages are cooked through.
Meanwhile combine all the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil, simmer, uncovered for about 10 minutes or until thickened slightly, cool 5 minutes.TO MAKE THE SAUCE IN THE THERMOMIXPlace all ingredients in the TM bowl. Remove the MC and place the steaming basket over the hole in the lid. Cook at 100C for 7 minutes on speed 1. Allow sauce to cool for 5 minutes.
