Cheesy Sausage Rolls – VeganMoFo Day 6

Cheese! Second to “but I could never give up bacon”, cheese is given as the main reason people won’t go vegan (not a scientific fact, but near enough). I’ve heard plenty of times “I would go vegan, but…. cheese”. I’ve never quite understood why not being able to give up cheese means you have to eat all the other animal products too, but that’s a different story. The upshot is, not being able to have cheese is pretty difficult for new vegans.

Thankfully, things have been changing in the vegan cheese world. Ten years ago, vegan cheese was not so good. It didn’t melt, it just sat there and got warm, and tasted slightly of old socks. Nutritional yeast, lovely as it is, didn’t quite fit that cheese craving. These days, most supermarkets in the UK sell vegan cheese – Violife is the main one, which I’ve used in this recipe, but Tesco and Sainsbury’s both have their own brand!


So, to showcase what vegan cheese can do, I decided to make cheesy sausage rolls. These were inspired by sausage rolls you can get at Sneinton Vegan Market, a monthly vegan market in Nottingham near me. I thought I’d have a go at making my own. I served them of course with mushy peas!

To fill these sausage rolls, I used granose sausage mix, which I bought from Morrisons, but you could use any sausage mix or vegan sausages themselves, just cut them to fit. I used jus-rol puff pastry as it’s vegan and cut it into six pieces.

Vegan Cheesy Sausage Rolls


  • 1 packet sausage mix, made up as directed
  • 1 puff pastry sheet, cut into six rectangles, as pictured above
  • 1 packet vegan cheese, sliced
  • olive oil for brushing


    Preheat the oven to 200C/400F
  1. Get a rectangle of the puff pastry, and place it on your baking sheet.
  2. Top with a spoonful of the sausage mix, spread so you can easily fold the puff pastry over.
  3. Place a slice of cheese on top of the sausage mix.
  4. Fold the puff pastry over the filling, and using a little water, seal tight (see photos above).
  5. Repeat until all the pastry is used up.
  6. Brush the unbaked sausage rolls with a little olive oil, then place them in the preheated oven.
  7. Cook for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.
