To me they are a real 'treat' not to be had very often but I do believe in spoiling myself of occasions, especially if I am having a bad day. My choice is a big sausage roll but think that pasties are better for you with the vegies so sometimes have one instead. Enjoy both really
Love a sausage roll. Not a giant sausage roll. Love home made sausage rolls (unless the cook has decided to give the sausage rolls a "lift" and has added curry powder or chilli or anything else that came into his/her head).
Plain old fashioned sausage rolls - love them And a baked custard tart to wash it down.
Like both. Used to go to this fabulous bakery, which had the little snag rolls, & they're the best I've ever tasted.
The bakeries' owned by Vietnamese are the best, as they were usually trained by the French!
Years ago I would buy the best pasties ever made. Lovely pastry and soft veggie filling and very more-ish. Sadly they vanished. I never buy sausage rolls as they have too much pastry and filler in the so-called meat filling. I make my own and theyvare always in demand from family and friends. My son-in-law used to work for a well known company who make pies and sausage rolls. He always says mine are the best he's ever
eaten and often requests a batch or two for himself.
Pastie every time! With only Meat, potato and carrot, & sometimes turnip, too - the Cornish Pastie is truly a wonderful meal. The poor Cornish women knew how to feed their mining man.
It must be a proper Cornish Pastie - no corn, curry, peas or other weird additions .
I love both but must admit a good sausage roll is hard to beat with tomato sauce on.
We make our own Pasties,; Cornish pasties are known as "tidde oggies" I am not sure if this is the correct spelling?
I believe the originals had the meat and beg at one end and a sweet filling at the other end, so was a complete meal in itself.
I always go for a sausage roll, & enjoy finding new places to buy them if I'm really hungry, while I'm out for the day. (And with free tomato sauce, if possible!) I think it's outrageous, places can charge 20 cents, for 1 of those tiny tomato sauce 'things'!
