Pork and Cranberry Sausage Rolls with Cucumber Pear Slaw
Let the sausage rolls rest on a cooling rack for about 5 minutes before serving, this will also help keep the bases crispier. This recipe should make 12 sausage rolls. For even-sized sausage rolls, we cut ours in half, then cut each half into 3 pieces.
