Its always good to have some quick and easy recipes for christmassy party food at this time of year! I got this recipe from a recipe card in Waitrose, and it looked to good I just had to try it out.

This recipe is super easy, and hardly involves any preparation, its just an assembling job really!

These sausage rolls tasted absolutely delicious, the chestnuts and cranberry give them a lovely unique flavour, and I think they would go wonderfully on a Christmas buffet table!

Variations: You could use some different flavouring in the rolls, chilli and cheddar cheese would go well. You could also use turkey mince to make a sausage meat instead, for an even more christmassy taste.
