Can you believe these are vegetarian? Neither could I when I first tried them!!
I can’t take credit for this recipe, it was given to me by a friends mum when I was at uni. I started making them for my housemates all the time. So naturally I wanted to share it with everyone on here – and my friends mum was more than happy to let me!
This recipe has become my favourite party trick – especially when it ‘male’ dominated the party. My biggest achievement yet? tricking my boyfriend into eating them. To put it in perspective he refuses to eat anything that doesn’t have meat in it(I am trying guys!!). So I served these up to him, simply telling him I had made sausage rolls. He was ecstatic, sausage rolls are a favourite of his. I placed them in front of him, sitting on the edge of my chair while he took a bite. He knew something was up with the way I was watching him…
”WHAT SHELLEY, What have you done to them”…
“Oh nothing babe. Do you like them?”
“ummm Yes they are great… what have you done? What! they have a carrot in them is that it?”
“hahaha sure yes thats it”
I was secretly screaming inside. I had managed to trick on the of the fussiest meat only eaters I know into eating healthy vegetarian sausage rolls – and he even confessed he likes them!!
What are you waiting for? Make these and amaze all of your friends! Make sure to share your creations with me on Instagram #shelleysgoodeats
