Advantages: Excellent value for money. Full of sausage meat
I like to keep sausage rolls in my freezer, particularly as I regularly have my family and friends over for buffets. However, many of the brands I have tried tend to be a mass of extremely dry pastry with a very small amount of sausage meat, until I tried Iceland Cocktail Sausage Rolls.
The sausage rolls are sold in a red 1.2 kg pack of approximately 80 for £2 and are advertised as being "a light puff pastry filled with seasoned sausage meat". What initially made me try this brand is that I've made numerous other purchases in Iceland and have found the majority of their reasonably priced products to be extremely tasty. There is a plate of sausage rolls on the front of the packet that look particularly appetising.
When you first remove the sausage rolls from the packet to place on a baking tray, they look particularly bland and unappetising. The directions Iceland provide for cooking are to pre-heat your oven at gas mark 6, or 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F. If you have a fan-assisted oven you need to cook at gas mark 4, or 180 degrees C or 350 degrees F, brush the sausage rolls with a little milk or egg and cook in the centre of the oven for 18 - 20 minutes until golden brown.
As like most sausage rolls, they smell absolutely delicious when cooking and my kitchen is filled with a gorgeous smell. I became quite hungry for sausage rolls when I started writing this review, so I've got some cooking in the oven right now!!
I find they don't take very long in my fan-assisted oven so I tend to take them out after about 12 minutes. I've never brushed them with milk or egg and they always come out looking golden and brown. However, you need to be careful and keep an eye on the edges when cooking as they sometimes burn.
There is a generous amount of sausage meat in each sausage roll and it doesn't run out when cooking. I've bought so many brands of sausage rolls that when cooked, have very little sausage meat remaining as the majority has spilled out onto my baking tray.
As for the important bit, the taste - I am of the opinion that these are the nicest sausage rolls I've eaten which pleasantly surprised me, particularly as they're only £2 for 80. The amount of pastry is just right and there's plenty of tasty sausage meat. Sometimes I find sausage rolls a little too spicy, but these are perfectly seasoned.
Now for the nutrition information and allergy advice:-
The great thing with these sausage rolls is they are not produced in an environment where nuts are present so are suitable for anyone with nut allergies. However, they contain gluten and soya.

I would highly recommend Iceland Cocktail Sausage Rolls and give them 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
Summary: Tasty sausage rolls; all of which are full of sausage meat. Well worth the money
