Paleoista Holiday Tip # 18: Paleo-izing Sausage Rolls
One of the traditions in my husband’s family, who live in England, is to serve sausage rolls on Christmas Day.
I have a funny memory of the very first Christmas we spend together; I’d asked Mum, my mother in law, for something special to make for my husband to remind him of home. Expecting and hoping for an elaborate old fashioned recipe, I was quite surprised when she suggested sausage rolls, and then proceeded to give me the recipe which called for two things: Pillsbury Crescent Roll Mix and Sausage!
While there are certainly varieties of sausage that can be Paleo, what’s the deal with the pastry? Can this recipe be paleo-ized?
But, of course!
By using a paleo-friendly flour, like almond, a paleo version is easily created. While it won’t puff up the way a gluten based flour will, it’s a close enough version, albeit a slightly sweeter one, that will bring back that childhood nostalgia to any Brit…at least according to my husband!
