Barbecued Sausage Rolls with Caramelised Onions

It doesn’t matter what sort of sausages you buy for these rolls– pork, beef, chorizo, chipolata – as long as they have lots of flavour!

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 15 minutes
    •    Cook time: 25 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 12


    •    2 tbsps olive oil
    •    3 tbsps Dijon mustard
    •    12 chipolata sausages
    •    2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
    •    12 flat-leaf parsley sprigs
    •    12 small dinner rolls, split
    •    2 red onion, halved, thinly sliced


  1. Heat oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, for 10-12 minutes until softened and browned. Increase heat to high, add balsamic and stir over high heat for 2-3 minutes to caramelise. Transfer to a bowl, season well, then cool. The caramelised onion will keep, covered in the fridge, for up to 5 days.
  2. Cook sausages on a barbecue preheated to medium for 8-10 minutes, turning until browned and cooked through. (Or preheat oven to 180C and cook for 15-20 minutes on an oiled baking tray). Allow to cool.
  3. To serve, lightly pack each dinner roll with caramelised onion. Add sausage, top with mustard and tuck in a sprig of parsley.
