What To Serve With Sausage Rolls – 39 Delicious Side Dishes

If you’re wondering what to serve with your sausage rolls, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 39 of the most popular side dishes for sausage rolls.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best side dishes to serve with sausage rolls are baked beans, coleslaw, or a watercress salad. If you want to make your sausage rolls a complete meal, try mash and peas, poutine, or cauliflower cheese. Picalilli, tomato chutney, or a mustard sauce are great dipping options.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

Mashed potatoes and peas

Serve your sausage rolls with a side of mashed potatoes and peas for a fun spin on the classic bangers and mash.

The peas will add a pop of color to your plate, and the mash is a guaranteed crowd pleaser (especially when it’s loaded with butter).

Why do we love this recipe: it’s straightforward, easy, and calls for readily accessible ingredients.

Homemade Heinz baked beans

Go full-on English and whip up a batch of British-style baked beans to accompany your sausage rolls. 

You can pop open a can, but trust me, nothing beats homemade. 

There’s no artificial flavoring or slimy texture – just luscious, sweet, and saucy goodness. 

Why we love this recipe: it tastes exactly like Heinz, but better!

Kale salad with bacon vinaigrette

Planning to have your sausage rolls for a light lunch? 

Complete the meal with a side of this kale salad. 

It features a unique vinaigrette made with bacon drippings (yes, you read that right!) that adds a smoky note to your kale and helps soften the leaves for a tender bite. 

Why we love this recipe: it proves that salads don’t have to be bland.

Homemade coleslaw

Bringing the sausage rolls to a picnic? 

Coleslaw is the perfect crunchy accompaniment to your savory treats. 

It’s easy to make and the creamy mayo dressing adds a refreshing bite that contrasts with your sausages’ meaty flavor. 

Why we love this recipe: it uses sour cream in the dressing for that extra tangy flavor.

Tomato chutney

Fancy-fi the concept of sausage rolls and ketchup with tomato chutney.

There are loads of different ways to make tomato chutney, but one thing they all tend to have in common is a fiery kick from some chili.

This recipe also uses sweet sultanas to balance out the heat.

Why we love this recipe: it uses three different types of tomatoes to ensure maximum flavor.

Poutine (chips and gravy)

Poutine has to be one of Canada’s greatest feats.

It’s chips and gravy, but on steroids. The addition of half-melted cheese curds really ups the anti.

And if you can’t get cheese curds, torn chunks of mozzarella will work.

Why we love this recipe: it’s a truly indulgent meal that also happens to be very tasty!

Homemade veggie chips 

Love potato chips but trying to be healthier?

Ditch the bagged ones and whip up these homemade veggie chips instead.

You can season them however you like – this recipe keeps things simple with salt. But I always like to add a sprinkling of pepper too. 

Why we love this recipe: these are baked, so you don’t need much oil.

Watercress salad

A sausage roll with a side of watercress is a wonderful thing.

The watercress has a peppery bite to it, which contrasts with the rich, fatty sausage roll. 

There aren’t many rules when it comes to what to put in this salad, but I love the addition of apples. They have a sweetness that works so well with the sharp, vinegary dressing.

Why we love this recipe: it’s a salad that works for summer or winter.

Sesame mustard sauce

Mustard sauce is a traditional side for sausage rolls – and it’s easy to see why.

Mustard sauce has a crisp, tart flavor that’ll remind you of picnicking on beautiful summer days.

And this recipe has a nutty touch in the form of sesame oil, which adds a great depth of flavor.

Why we love this recipe: it only takes five minutes to put together.

Creamy tomato soup 

How about another spin on tomato ketchup?

Tomato soup and sausage rolls are a comfort food match made in heaven.

The soup is crying out for something to soak it up all up, and sausage rolls are great for dipping.

Psst… not a fan of tomato? Pick your favorite soup!

Why we love this recipe: it uses roasted tomatoes to impart a hint of smokiness.

Lemon pepper mushy peas

Mushy peas have to be of the most underrated English vegetable side dishes.

This vibrant dish is buttery and has a bright flavor that pairs well with meaty dishes like sausage rolls. 

I’ve gone for lemon pepper flavor here, but minty mushy peas are also great.

Why we love this recipe: it’s perfect for using up that bag of frozen peas.

Cauliflower cheese

Take your sausage rolls to the next level by serving them with a decadent cauliflower cheese.

If the thought of using your sausage rolls to mop up a creamy, cheese sauce doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will!

Warning – you may need a nap after this meal.

Why we love this recipe: it suggests you roast the cauliflower to avoid watery mash.

Piccalilli is a mix between chutney and pickles.

Crunchy pickled vegetables such as cauliflower, green beans, and courgette are mixed into a spicy mustard sauce.

You can keep things chunky (like this recipe), or chop everything very small for a smoother consistency.

Either way – it will add a nice tangy bite to your sausage rolls.

Why we love this recipe: once made, the piccalilli will last for months.
