Who doesn’t love a good sausage roll? And a Clonakilty Blackpudding Sausage roll, even better! This simple recipe is easy and quick to prepare and is perfect for easy entertaining and quick holiday meals. The tangy taste of the cranberry sauce works brilliantly with the delicious taste of our Clonakilty Blackpudding Sausages and the delicate texture of the puff pastry.
