Healthier & More Nutritious Danish Sausage Rolls ( Pølsehorn)

Makes 24 sausage rolls 


1. 350g flour
2. 150g graham flour
3. 10g yeast (or 3g dry yeast)
4. 1 TBS honey
5. 1/2 tsp salt
6. 100ml lukewarm fresh skimmed milk
7. 50ml natural yogurt 0.1% fat
8. 1 egg
9. 75ml olive oil
10. 2 carrots grated
11. 8 sausages cut into three each
12. 1 egg for glazing (optional)
13. 1 dl sunflower seeds
14. 50g rolled oats
15. 16 tsp ketchup


1. In a mixer, add 10g yeast, 100ml lukewarm milk, 1 tablespoon honey and mix well.
2 Add 50ml milk, 50ml yogurt, 75ml olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and one egg and mix well.
3. Add grated carrots and mix well.
4. Add graham flour and mix for some time to get the gluten out.
5. Slowly add in the flour and run the mixer for 15 minutes or until you get a well-kneaded dough that doesn't stick to your finger, is elastic and easy to work with, but is not dry. It should be completely smooth and separate easily from the mixing bowl. Adjust with more flour accordingly. Make sure the dough is kneaded sufficiently. Best using a mixer as the dough needs to be kneaded for a long time.
6. Cover and let the dough rest for four hours at room temperature.
7. Divide the dough into two.
8. Roll one piece of dough into a round flat pizza, and cut it into 8 pieces.
9. 10 spread a thin layer of ketchup on each piece.
10. Cut the sausage into three.
11. Place one piece of sausage on a piece of dough and roll it up like a croissant.
12. Place all the sausage rolls on a tray laid with a baking sheet.
13. Cover and let it rise for an hour.
14. Brush with egg.
15. Bake in a preheated oven at 175 degree Celsius for 15 minutes or until golden.

Additional Information:

Like the Danish pizza roll, this is classic and a favorite among Danish kids. It is healthier than English sausage rolls. As C likes this a lot and it is cheaper to make it myself, I have decided to learn to bake this. This is the first time I baked this. J liked it and C liked it too. If you are in a hurry and can't wait for the dough to rise slowly for four hours in step 6, you can use 25g of yeast and reduce the dough resting time to one hour instead.

You can substitute milk with water. You can substitute olive oil with butter. If you don't want to add carrot, add 100ml more liquid (milk or yogurt). It is great for lunchboxes too. 

Original recipe:
1. 300g flour
2. 100g graham flour
3. 10g yeast (or 3g dry yeast) if resting overnight in the fridge, otherwise 20g and rest for 1 hr)
4. 1 TBS sugar
5. 1/2 tsp salt
6. 100ml fresh skimmed milk
7. 100ml natural yogurt 0.1% fat
8. 1 egg
9. 75ml olive oil
10. 8 sausages cut into three each
11. 1 egg for glazing (optional)
12. 1 handful of sesame seeds for garnishing
13. 16 tsp ketchup


You can freeze it down while they are still a little lukewarm. Take them out the night before or a few hours in advance and let them thaw in the fridge or for an hour on the kitchen counter. Spray them with a little water and warm them in a preheated oven at 175 degrees fan for 4-5 minutes or in a toaster.
