absolutely wonderful, they look like sausage rolls but are vegetarian (yay) so easy to fool the 'meat eaters' into having something vegetarian Smile

Wow!! These were amazing. Had my family fooled, didn't notice anything different. I am personally not a fan of sausages rolls, but thoroughly enjoyed these knowing the ingredients.

Too yummy!

I was so sceptical, especially when seeing the mixture and what I was putting in it. I actually only had goats cheese and a mixture of macadamia's and cashews instead of walnuts.... and added carrot, but oh my, my husband was surprised to hear they werent made on meat. And the best bit my son who isnt a real fan of veggies and never eats onion or carrot, devoured two of them. And then said he was full. He has been eating a lot all day though, but I am more than happy that he ate them let alone too and without whinging. Yahoo!!

I had quite a few too and struggled stopping at 5, and they were super filling. Great recipe!!! Very happy, I would have never came up with that combination and recipe. Thankyou!!!

Delicious! As a vegetarian I have missed sausage rolls and these taste like authentic, sausage meat sausage rolls! my husband said you can't taste the difference, only that they're better! These are a must try, filled with good, wholesome ingredients. I used pampa's puff pastry, and making the filling was too easy! I lightly sprinkled paprika on the top too.  Cooking

Loved them Smile Didnt change a thing the first time but its a great recipe that you could do loads of variations with! Smile YUM!!

Awesome. I made these at my daughters. Son in law came in with his Dad I asked them to try as a new recipe. Made some with canola puff pastry and some with Bilo puff pastry. The Bilo (cheaper) pastry tasted exactly like sausage rolls. SIL agreed, I didn't tell ingredients. Daughter tried them knowing there was no meat. She tried canola first and was dubious that they tasted like meat sausage rolls. She tried cheap pastry and was convinced. Will try for my husband when I go home. This is a winner with me. I used dried mixed herbs and sprinkled with breadcrumbs. I transport my thermomix. But not my whole pantry.

these are absolutely delish!!! my poor 11yo nearly had a heart attack when I had one (I am veggie) and he thought there was meat in them (hehe). We will definitely make these again

Had to try these too after all the positive comments and certainly not disappointed. These are delicious!!!

Is there anything that can be substituted for the walnuts in this recipe? I would like to make them for a school savoury plate but there is a student with a nut allergy....

Couldn't fault them. Delicious.

I must admit, I was sceptical about making these after looking at the ingredients list but just had to give them a go because of all the positive comments! And, they didn't disappoint. They were delicious! My three kids (8, 6 and 4) devoured them. They said the 'meat' was yum hahahaha

I decided to try these today and was not disappointed . They are delicious . I highly recommend them.

Didn't tell my family what they actually were and they loved them, they had no idea what was in them and could not believe it when I told them, incredible!!!!!! delicious, fantastic, healthy, these will now be a regular in our home.

All her (Cyndi O'Meara) recipes are awesome, you need to Google her!  She may change your life Smile

I followed the recipe exactly and OMG!  I cannot believe how delicious they were!  If you were to place a bet on whether it was vegetarian or not, you would not know what to pick.  It is an amazing recipe.  I cannot believe how un-vegetarian-like the 'sausage' rolls were!  With a blob of tomato sauce on the side, I had to force myself to stop after 4 .... or was it 5?  Puzzled.   Brilliant!  Thank you Cyndi O'Meara, whoever and wherever you are!!!  Love

These are so incredibly delicious! I used soy sauce instead of tamari, and only 2 eggs, and the mixture was perfect. Served them to my husband's mates while they watched the rugby, no one could believe they were meat free when i told them. Will definitely be making again!

-1 zucchini

-1 carrot

-half an apple (left over from kids arvo tea)

YUMMO!!! I was dubious, but these are just delicious! The raw batter tastes a little bit like hommus. So tasty!

Amazing! Thanks for the recipe. I used a leek , parsley, thyme, sage and garlic  form the garden and they were delicious! I used 2 pieces of frozen bread for the bread crumbs . They look so "real"!  Hahaha... Can't wait to try them out on the family!  Smile

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
