devon rolls

It was the Aussie party food of the 80s. While party pies, sausage rolls, chicken nuggets and fairy bread have remained popular into the 2020s, whatever happened to the glorious Devon Roll?

Served on a plate with a generous dish of tomato sauce, I found these little snacks quite appetising as a youngster. Much fancier than the devon and tomato sauce sandwich that we were also fed back then!

If you’re planning an 80s themed party or simply want your kids to experience the joys of your own childhood, then these Devon Rolls are a must.

Devon Rolls: the ingredients

Devon Rolls, sometimes called Devon and Potato Rolls, take just minutes to prepare.

You’ll need:

  • devon (also known as polony, luncheon, Belgium, Windsor sausage and fritz)
  • potatoes
  • salt
  • mayonnaise
  • butter.

Where can you buy devon?

Devon is available from delis (including supermarket delis) and butchers.

Ready to roll: making Devon Rolls

Start by peeling and dicing the potatoes before boiling in salted water until tender.

Drain the potatoes and return to the saucepan.

Add butter and mayonnaise and mash into potato.

Add two dessert spoons of mashed potato in a line in centre of devon.

Fold one side across the potato and then the other side so it is overlapping the first side.

Pin the overlapping pieces of the devon together with a toothpick.
