This is a great recipe for those wanting to make sausage rolls without meat. I guess that makes them non-sausage rolls then !? Sausage rolls are a favourite for many and are often used as a celebratory snack at birthday party and events.
For Vegetarians we can still enjoy this snack the meat-free way. With walnuts and oats as an alternative to give that meaty texture, mixed with herbs and cooked in spelt wraps, they never last long at our house 🙂
