Sausage Stuffed Croissants

Uncategorized | January 14, 2014 | By

I’ve almost cleared all the excess food from the festive season, however there was quarter of a pack of frozen cocktail sausages in the freezer and a can of croissant dough in the fridge which was heading towards it’s use by date. 

Originally I’d intended to make one of the sausage and croissant rings like the one made by Claire at Foodie Quine.  However, my good intentions came to naught and the other can of dough was baked into ordinary croissants.

I cooked the cocktail sausages in the oven making sure they were cooked through.  I took them out and left them to cool a little.  I unrolled the dough and separated the pieces, spread them with grain mustard and rolled up the dough around the sausages (two cocktail sausages per croissant) and baked for 15 minutes until puffed up and browned.

These Sausage Stuffed Croissants are ideal for lunch and would slip nicely into a packed lunch box too.

I’m entering this dish for the No Waste Food Challenge  originally created by Turquoise Lemons and now being run by Elizabeth at Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary.

I’m also linking up to Daisies and Pie – Lunchbox Ideas

You know I have not used that dough for years, always liked the challenge of unwinding those tins!

Great idea for using up the leftover sausages! Thanks to the menfolk we had no leftover sausages šŸ™

YUM! I have led such a sheltered life, I didn't know you could get croissant dough in tins. I DO have some homemade croissant dough in the freezer though, I just need the croissants!

Thanks Dom, I don't think I was in too much danger of it going wrong, just a sausage roll with bread dough after all lol!
Ah Anne, I would hate to be without my leftovers, I recommend hiding a few from the menfolk šŸ˜‰
Ros – you are so right, we had two each šŸ™‚

This is a lovely variation on sausage rolls. I'd never have thought to put sausages in croissants before but I love croissants and bacon for breakfast ocassionally so why not.


A great no waste food challenge entry, thank you for sharing! Loving the new blog look too – very fresh and upbeat! šŸ™‚
