How to Make Nigerian Sausage Rolls

Nigerian Sausage rolls ranges from the trade marked products such as Gala®, Bigi®, and Super bite®  .

These sausage rolls are popular in most major cities in Africa and usually sold by street hawkers during traffic jams.

Apart from the trademarked  ones, sausage rolls  are also  sold at  eateries and restaurants.

But no matter what type of sausage roll you buy, Nigerian sausage rolls usually contains a beef or pork filling and
is simply delicious.

I have various tried and tested recipes for sausage roll, but here’s  how to make a  classic tasty Gala-like sausage rolls.


Ingredients you’ll need for Nigerian Sausage Rolls

For the dough

  • 250g All purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoonful Baking Powder
  • 100g Margarine or butter
  •   ½ teaspoon Salt
  •  Cool Water(as needed)
  • 1 raw medium-sized egg(for coating the rolls)

For the sausage rolls filling you’ll need

  • 200g of minced or ground sausage meat
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of ground Nutmeg
  • 1 stock cube or 1 tablespoon full stock powder

Nigerian Sauage rolls Preparation

  1. First grind the sausage meat. Add nutmeg, black pepper and crumbled stock cube/powder. Mix thoroughly to get all the spices in. Set aside
  2. In a bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well and add the margarine or melted butter. Mix well by rubbing the margarine into the flour; Continue mixing until the mixture looks like bread crumbs or garri.
  3. Now add a little water, bit by bit, until you get a non-sticky smooth dough.
  4. Break and egg, whisk it and set aside.
  5. Grease or line a baking tray and set aside.
  6. Place the dough on a lightly floured table and knead for 5 minutes.

7. Cut out a bit of the dough and using a rolling pin,roll  the dough flat (but not too flat). Then cut out the dough to form a rectangular shape and place some of the spiced sausage meat on the dough  and fold the dough.

8. Now cut the rolled dough into two or more equal sizes (depending on the length of the sausage you want). Place the sausages in the greased/lined tray and repeat the process for the remaining dough.

9. Now bake in the Oven at 170º C/ 375 F for 35 minutes or until the sausage rolls are lightly browned.

Nigerian Sausage Rolls are usually enjoyed with a chilled drink or yogurt.

      To get the original sausage roll taste, you have to use sausage meat,but some folks also make use of ground cooked beef.

    Can I make the sausage meat myself, from beef or any meat type? How do I make Minced meat or minced Chicken myself?

      • Joycelyn
        September 18, 2019 / 6:15 pm

        For making the minced meat or chicken, hope I will have to cook it first before grinding. Or it is that it would be grinded raw as I bought it. Thanks Darling sister

        • September 18, 2019 / 8:29 pm

          Hi Joycelyn,
          for my sausage rolls I made use of sausage meat that you get at the stores.
          And these do not require any cooking .
          If you are planning to make your sausage meat at home with fresh meat(pork, beef or poultry)
          you also don’t have to cook them before grinding.
          Add the other ingredients, mix and fill.
          Then bake for 30 to 40 mins and enjoy( don’t worry it wont come out raw).

    Is sausage meat the same as the one used for making meatpie? I'm confused.

    • Nky Lily Lete
      November 26, 2013 / 3:13 pm

      No dear, it is not the same as the one for meatpie . In Nigeria it is called 'satis meat' and usually sold at most supermarkets… if you check the video above you'll see the meat I used … Do let me know if you have more questions 🙂
