I've seen a few variations on the classic sausage roll, some have put tomato ketchup in there, others have shoved in some beans. It had never occurred to me that chilli sauce would be a good addition to a sausage roll, but it did occur to Alf Turner, and I assume their reasoning behind it was "why the hell not". So here it is, a sausage roll with added chilli sauce. Simple enough, but is it effective?
The sausage roll itself is pretty good. Thankfully it only came with instructions for heating in the oven, because that's the best way to do it, and anyone who heats them in a microwave is a monster. So after 15 minutes of cooking, I was greeted with a nice flaky pastry filled with a hefty hunk of meat. It's not the best quality you can find out there, but it's some good sausage. There are not gristly bits or large deposits of fat, just nicely crafted sausage. The chilli sauce is infused into the meat, and I must say it provides a very nice kick, almost a habanero level of spice. It isn't quite uniform throughout the entire sausage roll, but it does give a good level of heat throughout. All in all this is a good quality sausage roll with a great, spicy twist. Apparently there's also a dragon's pork pie and scotch egg, so I'll be tracking those down in the future. Hooray for hot sauce.
My rating: 4/5
