Hosting at home however can often be a stressful experience, which is why these sausage rolls should be on your menu!

Sausage rolls actually make the best party food, because they are fuss-free, require minimal washing up (hello one bowl), and don’t require any plates or cutlery to be used. The ultimate finger food!
This sausage roll pastry was inspired by one of my favorite cuisines. I absolutely adore Thai food. Thai food has a perfect balance of – the sweet, the salty, the spicy and the sour, which is exactly what you’ll find in these Thai Sausage Rolls.
The sweet comes from the sweet chili sauce, the sour from the lime, the salty from the fish sauce, and the spicy from the fresh chili!

Thai Sausage Rolls Recipe Tips
This sausage rolls recipe is very easy to make, but here are some pro tips to make life just a little bit easier when you make them!
- Fully defrost your puff pastry before using. If it is not defrosted, the pastry will crack and break, making it harder to roll
- Place the sauce ingredients in a bowl beforehand to taste test before adding to chicken mixture. You can balance out the flavors and taste test it first.
- Make ahead the day before and store in an airtight container. Reheat in the oven at 400F until warmed through.
- Don’t like chicken? Try these pork and cranberry sausage rolls as an alternative!
- Serve with sweet chili sauce for an extra pop of spice, or ketchup!
These Thai sausage rolls truly make a fantastic appetizer for a New Year’s Eve party! No one wants to work hard on New Year’s Eve! Sit back, relax and enjoy the party knowing that you’ve got an amazing and delicious appetizer to offer!
