A review

So the adventure with gluten free eating has continued and on the weekend I tried Patties Gluten Free Sausage Rolls.  This was to placate my need to eat similar to the rest of the household, plus my coeliac dad had left them in the freezer here.

I have had many sausage rolls over my life so far.  Home made, frozen, commercial bakery the works.  The gluten free ones I had were one of the worst.  Sorry, I tried really hard to like them, but they just didn't cut it.

The pastry was hard not at all flaky to begin with.  This meant it would crumble and crack and end up all over my top, lap, table and require sauce to soften/collect up.

The contents resembled wet ground up cardboard.  In fact, I'm not convinced the box wouldn't have tasted better.  It was greyish/brown and had the consistancy of paste.  Not at all appealing.

So out of ten I give it 4.  And most of those points are to do with it being gluten free.

If anyone can let me know where I can get some gluten free puff pastry so I can make my own (gah!) I would really appreciate it.
