Sausage rolls may not be as popular as they once were, but they are begging for a revival. They're spectacular for breakfast: savory sausage wrapped in delicate puff pastry with a hint of mustard, which adds necessary acidity. They can be assembled the day before, then simply brushed with egg and placed in the oven once the guests arrive. And if you happen to have any leftovers they make a fantastic weekday lunch as well.

If you're looking for something different, try some fun variations. Substitute breakfast sausage and apricot jam, or an Italian sausage and hot pepper relish. Some people don't like beer in the morning, but if you're serving sausage rolls for brunch I highly recommend a light crisp beer alongside.
