”Who doesn’t love a warm sausage roll to kick off a Christmas party? A slice of this Italian-inspired version is generous enough to serve as a main course with a winter salad, or it will sit splendidly as part of a sharing spread. The flaky, buttery pastry is a little readymade cheat I’ve discovered… Think of it as my Christmas gift to you.” – food editor, Jen Bedloe

Using readymade croissant dough gives a great flaky result and saves work for the cook. You’ll have 4 pastry triangles left over. Roll into crescents, cover and leave to prove in the fridge. Bake according to the pack instructions.
Make the filling up to 2 days ahead. Once assembled, chill the roll, then bake up to 4 hours ahead. Once baked, the roll will keep well for up to 2 days covered in the fridge. Reheat in a hot oven or serve at room temperature.
Pul biber are dried chilli flakes from Turkey with a fruity, moderately spiced flavour. They’re available from Waitrose and souschef.co.uk but you can leave it out, if you wish.
A fresh, cherryish young Italian red such as chianti classico or bardolino makes an excellent match for this.
