Love sausage rolls?

Coles have launched one of their latest Christmas inspired creations, the sausage roll wreath – filled with beef sausage mince, ham, roast veggies, cranberries and fennel for a hint of Christmas spice all wrapped inside golden puff pastry. Developed by the Coles development chef and former MasterChef Australia contestant, Michael Weldon, he says he was inspired to “create something fun for the centre of the table”.
