Sausage rolls are such a tasty snack all year round but there is something particularly wonderful about them over the festive season. However, if you aren’t a meat-eater or just fancy a change from the classic sausage roll then you must try this recipe.

These meatless vegetarian sausage rolls don’t simply just replace the sausagemeat with a vegetarian sausage option but instead use vegetarian haggis

So what is Haggis?

A traditional dish from Scotland, Haggis is a mixture of lamb, beef, oats, onions and spices. So a little like a mince you would use in a shepherds pie but with the added fibre and from the oats

However, in this recipe, I use the wonderful MacSween vegetarian haggis, which is a combination of vegetables, mushrooms, pulses, oats, onions and seeds. I got this from Waitrose in the UK

To make these meatless vegetarian sausage rolls even easier to make I used pre-rolled puff pastry. think this is probably slightly more expensive than making your own but quite frankly this isn’t a skill I have yet perfected. The great thing is that you can also buy Gluten-free packs of puff pastry which is incredible.

I usually buy the supermarket brand of puff pastry or the Jus-Rol brand

Another addition that makes these the best meatless vegetarian sausage rolls is the layer of pickle or chutney before you add the haggis and roll them.

Diabetes Note

OK, so these aren’t the easiest of snacks to count for but once broken down it should give you a general idea of how we calculated the total carbs.

However, one thing to bear in mind is the carb count for the vegetarian haggis. We don’t typically have to count for pulses or beans so what I did was work out the carb amount based on the percentage of oats used (23%) which was very helpfully on the nutritional label.

This is how I worked out the carb count amount for MacSween Vegetarian Haggis

23g of carbohydrates per 100g of haggis

  1. Percebntage that is oats = 23%
  2. 23% of 23 = 5.3g of carbs per 100g
  3. Recipe uses 400g, therefore 5.3 x 4= 21.2

Therefore the carb count we used for 400g of MacSween Vegetarian Haggis is 21.2g of carbs

We also have to count for the pastry and chutney so please see below for the carb counting breakdown based on the ingredients I used. You can just switch in your carb amounts for your ingredients used to get a more accurate carb count per sausage roll.

Carb Counting

The overall carb count for one meatless vegetarian sausage roll, based on the ingredients we would count is:

  • Puff pastry = 215g – 80.2g of carbs
  • MacSween vegetarian haggis = 400 g- 21.2g of carbs
  • Red Onion Chutney = 60g – 33g of carbs

Now add all the carbs together – 80.2+21.2+33 = 134.4

Finally divide this by the number of sausage rolls made, 6 – 134.4/12 = 11.2g of carb per Meatless Vegetarian Sausage roll

Please note this carb count amount per portion is based on the standard ingredients listed above and may differ depending on what you use and how much you choose to eat.

Ingredients

  • 400 g vegetarian haggis

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped or 1 tbsp chopped frozen shallots

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs, sage, rosemary, parsley etc

  • 1 sheet pre-rolled puff pastry

  • 4 tbsp chutney

  • 1 egg, beaten for egg wash

Directions

  • Add a little glug of oil to a frying pan and gently soften the onions.
  • Add the mixed herbs and crumbled up haggis. Heat through for a couple of minutes and remove from the heat.
  • Heat your oven to 220°C / 200°C fan
  • Cut your pastry sheet in half lengthways, spread your chutney in the middle of each half and then add the haggis mixture in the middle making sure to leave a good edge.
  • On one long edge baste each half of your pastry with the egg wash. Then tightly roll the pastry over the haggis mixture to join the long edges so the pastry stick to the egg-washed edge
  • Cut each length equally into 6 rolls. slash the tops diagonally with a sharp knife and place on a lightly greased baking tray
  • Finally, egg wash the tops of the rolls and place in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes
