Sausage Rolls

Sausage Rolls
2½ cups bread flour
3tbsp+2tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
½ cup milk
120g tangzhong (recipe below)
2 tsp instant yeast3 tbsp butter (cut into small pieces, softened at room temperature)

  • Combine the flour, salt, sugar and instant yeast in a bowl of a stand mixer. Make a well in the center. Add in all wet ingredients: milk, egg and tangzhong. Fit the dough hook attachment on your stand mixer and begin mixing on medium speed and knead until your dough comes together and then add in the butter and continue kneading.  Keep kneading until the dough is smooth, not too sticky on the surface and elastic, about 18-20 minutes. Each mixer may vary. When the dough is ready, you should be able to take a chunk of dough and stretch it to a very thin membrane before it breaks. When it does break, the break should be form a circle.
  • Knead the dough into a ball shape. Take a large bowl and grease with oil.  Place dough into greased bowl and cover with a wet towel. Let it proof until it’s doubled in size, about 40 minutes.
  • Transfer to a clean surface. Divide the dough into six equal portions. Knead into balls.  Cover with cling wrap, let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Roll out each portion of the dough to form a long rope.  Take a sausage and begin wrapping the rope around the sausage, starting at one end and ending up at the other end.
  • Place each rolled sausage on a baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Let them rise until double the size, approximately another 40-60 minutes.
  • Beat an egg and brush egg mixture on top to create shiny egg wash finish.
  • Bake at 350°F / 175°C for approximately 30 minutes. The sausage rolls are best eaten hot, when the crust of the bread is crunchy.

1/3 cup  bread flour
1 cup water
  • Mix flour and water together and whisk until it is completely dissolved and no lumps remain.
  • Pour mixture into a small pot and turn on medium heat. Begin stirring constantly as the mixture heats up. It will begin to thicken.  When the temperature of the mixture reaches 65°C, turn off the stove and take the mixture off the stove to let it cool. If you are continually stirring, the mixture will start to have “lines” and then it is done. (You will start to see lines around the same time the temperature reaches 65°C)
