Sausage roll

A sausage roll is a popular pastry snack that is common in countries in the European Union. It is always available in retail outlets and in eateries all over the world.

When the word sausage roll is heard for the first time in Nigeria, what comes to mind is the popular Gala snack that is sold in virtually all areas in Nigeria.
