Sausage Rolls with Pepper Jelly
Sausage rolls are a classic British snack food, similar to Pigs in a Blanket. I’ve transformed them into an easy and fun appetizer with a tasty Pepper Jelly!
A great holiday recipe is something everyone should know how to make. You need a go-to that you can bring to potlucks and parties at Christmas time. Something you can make quickly, and you know it will knock their socks off at that NYE or Superbowl get together. I love these PEPPER JELLY SAUSAGE ROLLS because they’re a twist on a classic (you already know I love Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket) but is still unique enough to be requested time and time again.
I love the sweetness of these mini sausage rolls, mixed with the tang from the grainy mustard, and just the right amount of spice from the pepper jelly. I love that they’re delicious both served hot or cold, and I love that they’re bite sized appetizers. That means you can eat 10 and not feel guilty…right?
This Sausage Rolls Recipe is the perfect bite-sized appetizer, and they’re even better with the Pepper Jelly!
Mini Sausage Rolls – Perfectly Poppable
These mini sausage rolls are the perfect, poppable, bite sized appetizers for Christmas. The only problem is how hard it is to eat just one! You can pretty much guarantee that a double batch will be necessary. Especially once you add on that pepper jelly.
We ate these for a full meal in our house. Can you blame us?! They’re just too fun and delicious. Holiday baking is good and all, but I love the holiday appetizers the most. Please give me all of the meatballs, dips, nachos, and of course these Pepper Jelly Sausage Rolls. These are making it on all of our holiday menus for SURE. Yum yum yum.
What is Pepper Jelly?
Pepper Jelly is exactly what it sounds like: it’s a jelly made with peppers. There are different varieties, so some might be more sweet while others are more spicy. But the mix of flavors is so good, especially when paired with these little sausage rolls.
I like things with a little bit of heat but not way too spicy. That’s why pepper jelly is perfect. Sugar and spice and everything nice!
