No.40 Apricot & Turkey Sausage Rolls

Apricot and thyme is a combination that is rarely done apart from a yearly Christmas stuffing.  These flavours work well in a “healthier” sausage roll compared to regular pork ones we all grew up eating.  These will surprise your guests as they will think you have been up all night making them.
