Danish Sausage Rolls – pølsehorn

I’ve made Sausage Rolls a few times using different recipes – these turned out the best. They are a child friendly food, good for a light meal or snack. We usually eat it with a combination of sauces – each of us has our own favourite – any thing from ketchup, mustard, mayonaise to garlic dressing.

Sausage Rolls – Pølsehorn



  • 25 grams butter
  • 250 ml milk
  • 25 grams yeast
  • 2 teaspoons (10 grams) sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon (5 grams) coarse salt
  • 400 grams flour
  • 16 4 inch sausages
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the milk.
  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir the yeast into it.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. The dough will still be very sticky…but don’t worry.
  5. Cover the bowl with a cloth and let it rise in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour – until doubled.
  6. Place dough on a floured surface and knead it well.
  7. Divide the dough into 16 pieces and roll each piece of dough into a long sausage. Wrap the dough around the sausages.
  8. Place the sausage rolls on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Cover rolls with a cloth and let rise 15 minutes.
  9. Brush the rolls with a little water. Then bake sausage rolls for 20 minutes or until golden.

These Sausage Rolls are very traditional snack in Denmark. You can by them everywhere.

About everyvariety

I find that being aware of looking for opportunities to enjoy life through as many senses as possible creates strong impressions of pleasure that enhance life's experiences. As with any other creation, there are many aspects to making an enjoyable experience. There should be memorable stimulation caused by texture, smell, color, taste, and visual presentation. This blog follows my journey as I learn to create, through following other's recipes, adapting recipes and creating my own. My love for all cooking, but mostly baking, comes from the joy I feel when sharing what I make with others and the satisfaction of a job well done. I am not naturally gifted when it comes to cooking but I find the experience meditative and creative, thus mentally relaxing. Please join me in my quest for making eating a beautiful experience.
