    I just checked the latest questions and found nothing of your description. It's been deleted I would say.

    I don't remember eating or seeing a sausage roll in the USA like what is described in your link Pyth.


    Roy took me to a bakery for breakfast and I ordered the sausage roll thinking it was the same thing as what I've grown up referring to as a pig in a blanket so I got a surprise when I bit into it. LOL


     Something else I've learned while in Scotland is what the UK and the USA call a pig in a blanket is not exactly the same thing either.


    Let me see if I've got this correct:


    This is a Sausage Roll, sausage wrapped in pastry but the sausage inside the roll is ground/minced sausage instead of a link.

    This is  what the UK refer to as a Pig in a Blanket, sausage link wrapped in bacon.

    The last two pictures are what the USA refer to as Pig in a Blanket which is pastry wrapped around a sausage link or a wiener.

    We call anything with sausage in it a. pig in the blanket. I peeked at the link and they look wonderful: pastry and sausage, not heavy bread like our biscuits , run them this way, invest in a food truck and we’ll hit the streets………..   Something different from our……….

    Yes we have them too.Ours are a Frankfurt wrapped in puff pastry.

    Hi, Pythonlover.  I have never tasted, nor even heard of, a sausage roll made with the ingredients you in Australia use.  Our America version is, as others have said, make with a simple hot dog, or a sausage (pork or turkey) link.  When I hear "pigs in a blanket", I ONLY think of a pancake rolled around a breakfast sausage link.   (this isn't that hard, really, pretty straight forward question)

    I prefer a GOOD sausage roll, emphasis on good sausage meat and pastry.

    There is an excellent meat market that grinds a variety of tasty sausages...I could see some of them making a delicious sausage roll, but nothing ING the regular groceries here.
