I added a carrot and half a zucchini and I also substituted the tamari for soy sauce. They were really good, just don't taste the raw mix trying to figure out what you can add, it was not pleasant!!

Wow! These are awesome, can't believe there is no meat. Had kids and hubby fooled. I added a zucchinI and carrot and a tbsp of vege stock (edc) and mixture was fine. Made heaps so lots of leftovers for school lunchboxes.

Yummy!!! Easy to make. I was a bit worries as it was so sloppy would it  ooze out everywhere. It didn't ooze much our too much when I rolled it. As I was making it for the next night's dinner I didn't cut them out but wrapped in glad wrap and put in the fridge.

next night after a long day out kids in shower I cut them up, pricked with a fork, brushed with egg and milk and put on two trays in the oven.

son ate 7, I had 6, daughter had 2 and a half. She said she was full (had veges as well). She being my fussy one But she didn't even notice there was onion in them. They said they would be happy to have in their lunch box. 

Next time I will put in carrot and zucchini but thought the first time I would make it following the recipe.

loved it thank you!!! Photo is of leftovers. The ones in the middle didn't brown because of oven. Next time I will rotate tray.

who knew it isn't meat? Yummy raw and yummy cooked.

Wow...I was skeptical at first, thinking they would be bland, however tasted fabulous! I added one carrot as per previous comments and the consistency of the mixture was good....thanks so much for the recipe!!!

made these and added zucchini and a carrot. Next time will replace the oats with quinoa flakes.  tastes great and I love telling ppl what's in them Smile

My children are very fussy my daughter loved them. Going to try different herbs. Yum Smile

currently have a batch of these in the oven, they are amazing! the mixture was a bit runny for us (I think it's the extra large fresh eggs we used) so we added a few more breadcrumbs. 

 

our herbs were chives and parsley which went lovely together, will definitely be a regular in our house!!!

A huge hit with the family, especially the kids and even the very fussy Mr 2yo devoured his. Next time will add a few extra veggies.

Thankyou so much for a healthy and very tasty sausage role recipe. None of the family new they didnt have meat in them, very easy to make as well. In my favourites list will be making these again.

After reading comments on here and in forums, I decided to give these a go. Divine!!!!! My kids devoured them, and my hubby didn't believe me they were meat free. Will be on our fav list for sure.

Yum! Love this recipe, left it with my non-cooking husband and was so pleasantly surprised to come home to these. Kids happily demolished them as did we! 

Yum! Thank you for this recipe.

Sorry, I'm actually commenting for my own future reference. Is there a way to do this without making it public?

Added a carrot, zucchini, celery stick and also used rolled quinoa instead of oats. Doubled breadcrumbs to 90g. Made 10 rolls (5 sheets of pastry)

These were really tasty, I'll probably add a bit more veg next time but really great. I really liked the texture of the filling (although came out a bit runny for me too). Going to try these on bub tomorrow which I'm sure will be a hit!!! Thanks.

These were easy to make for a new cook like me and big hit with all the family.

Amazing! Made them for lunch today and they don't taste meatless at all. Going to try to trick the meat crazed boyfriend tonight. Wish me luck! 

Better late than never. Soy sauce will substitute Tamari just fine. Tamari is essentially a gluten free soy sauce. 

Kerrie, any chance you could put up your variation as a recipe?

These are pretty much a staple in my household Smile I exchange the walnuts for almonds now (a happy accident). My 17mth old son loves them. Fabulous and easy dish.

I made these tonight and they were SO YUMMY! I have a very fussy 4 year old boy who actually ate everything on his plate, which is amazing. My hubby was very interested to hear it was meat-free, which I only told him afterwards! My 16 month old baby girl ate the same quantity as my hubby and I!

After reading all the comments below, I decided to make a few additions:

 - 1 carrot and 1 zucchini (in addition to the 1 onion)

 - 1 tbsp TM EDC veggie stock concentrate (was going to add sprinkle of Italian herbs but forgot)

 - 30g almonds, handful of macadamia nuts (in addition to the 100g walnuts)

 - 3 tsp parmesan cheese (in addition to 150g feta cheese)

 - 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 2 tbsp home-made tomato sauce

 - 2 tbsp chia seeds

 - 30g breadcrumbs, 30g LSA

 - And I included the rest of the recipe as written (95g rolled oats, 3 eggs, 5 sheets of Puff Pastry, sesame seeds/egg/milk)

Mine wasn't runny at all, and it cooked beautifully for 20mins at 200degrees fan-forced (I did lower it to 190degrees for the last 5 mins). The 5 puff pastry sheets made a total of 40 'sausage' rolls, and as a family we ate 14, so I will be freezing the rest for a night where I don't have time to cook. Yay!

AMAZING! All the comments are right: not only are these just as good as meat-based sausage rolls, I'd say they're even tastier! (They're certainly an awful lot healthier. Wink ) I served them at a party with vegetarian and omnivore guests and if I hadn't said anything no one would have known they didn't contain meat. I actually had to reassure one of the vegetarians that they really, honestly didn't. ;) I followed some of DoubleDecafs mods:

- Added 1 carrot and 1 zucchini at the onion stage

- Used 1 tbsp of soy sauce instead of tamari

- Added a heaped teaspoon of vegetable stock paste

- Added a couple of spoonfuls of tomato sauce (actually I used tomato puree because I had some to use up)

The extra veggies bulked the mixture out (which I still found quite runny, like others) so I ended up using 4 sheets of puff pastry but they were bursting at the ends - probably could have used 4.5-5 sheets. I froze them after sprinkling the sesame seeds on top then pulled them out the morning of the party to defrost, sticking them in the oven just before guests arrived. They disappeared very quickly!

These are amazing!! Not sure if I didn't roll my dough out enough or what, but I had wayyyy too much filling - not that it went to waste! My non-vego husband had thirds, then made me promise I wouldn't eat the rest so he could take them for lunch. Perfect! Next time I will make two batches of the rough puff pastry to accommodate. So good!!! Big smile

Have used this recipe multiple times, family didn't even realise they were vegetarian. love them and will be making them again for sure. Thanks for sharing. Smile

OMG - these are just beautiful! I also only added 1 tablespoon dry herbs, plus 1 carrot, 2 tablespoons tomato  sauce and salt and pepper! Yummo!

these were a big hit at a 4th birthday party.

Wow I can't believe how 'meaty' these vegetarian sausage rolls are! I personally found them a little bland, so I added a dash of worcestershire sauce, homemade tomato sause and soy sauce to the mix. Next time I'll also add some grated carrot and zucchini. All up a great recipe Smile

Very Yum, eaten by whole family including 2 and 3 year olds Smile

Just added these to my favourites list. I am going to keep the ingredient a secret. My daughter has decided she doesn't like sandwiches any more so I am always rapped when I find healthy alternatives.

As good as my Gran's meaty sausage rolls...which is saying something because my Gran's sausage rolls are an institution!

Fantastic recipe, make these regularly, great way to reduce meat from the kids diet!

OMG these are the best and so incredibly easy.

 

i substituted the walnuts for two types of Salad Topper blends that I bought in the fruit and vege section of Coles - Almond Dukkah and Tamari Blend. Fantastic! I can't wait for the meat eaters to get home and try these.

Made these for lunch today and my meat-monster husband ate 6 of them and 2 more before dinner! Didn't have enough walnuts so used half walnuts, half almonds and only had panok crumbs in cupboard so they got used too. They were scrumptious and made plenty. Some in freezer for next weekend now. Delicious!

ok my entire family (husband, 3 kds, my mum & dad) loved these ! i secretly didnt tell them that they were vegetarian...Smile

i added mushrooms as well, yum yum yum!

Absolutely delicious. I added quite a bit of extra veggies so needed to add a few more nuts. (Used walnuts and almonds) to get right consistancy. A big hit with the whole family. Definitely recommend and definitely making again. 

Love Love these and so did everyone else!! Love

I make these suitable for school by substituting sunflower seeds (only about 50g) for the walnuts. I also add a carrot with the onion and a few mushrooms with the feta:), You could certainly leave them out altogether ... I have made this recipe a bunch of times and it is very forgiving. Also I only ever add 2 eggs.

Beuatiful as is, but I modified by adding 1 carrot into the onion stage.  I also used 1 Tbs of soy sauce instead of tamari, a heaped teaspoon of vegetable stock paste, a couple of spoonfuls of tomato sauce and a sprinkle of Italian herbs. I also brushed with beaten egg instead of milk. I agree that no-one would guess they are vegetarian, I couldn't taste the walnuts or the fetta, just all-round amazingly delicious. I would happily serve these instead of the meat variety at any party (including one with meat-loving guests!). 

I'm going to make these but want to make them without nuts so I can send them to school. What could I use instead? Suggestions welcome!

Excellent recipe! I have made these so many times before but never tweaked them because we like them just the way they are. After reading all these comments just now, I'm going to add a couple of carrots into the mix next time Smile

I have made these heaps of times and the mixture is a bit runny, it's normal Smile All 3 eggs into the mix.

Super yum

when I made it realised I did not have any walnuts so used almonds and worked fine

kids loved them and had no idea they were packed full of vegetables and nuts!!

Made them for my daughters bday, not one left. Deeeeeelicious Smile

Just made these, they are in the oven now. My mixture was very runny was all 3 eggs meant to go into the mixture? Or was one supposed to be left out to brush them with. Any help would be great. 

 

They taste great, but they took a lot longer to cook. It was another 15 mins to get brown

Thank you!  Smile

I did some testing of lunch box options over these school hols and the sausage rolls froze beautifully. The kids actually ate them cold too. I put them into those Glad press-lock lunch bags after they had cooled from cooking. 

This is definitely one of my all time favourite TM recipes that I have made time & time again. Does anyone know if they freeze very well? I'd like to use them in lunch boxes.

Found them a bit herby but with a few tweaks they are awesome! My meat loving partner enjoys them too which is a bonus Smile
