Brits can’t believe America is taking credit for ‘inventing’ the sausage roll


WTF is this mess? (Picture: Trader Joe’s)

America: You went too far, and this time it’s personal.

Popular supermarket Trader Joe’s (it’s where hipsters on a budget go to shop) is patting itself on the back for their new item, Puff Dogs.

There, well, why don’t you read the description for yourself: ‘Hot dogs are, of course, typically served on a bun; Trader Joe’s Puff Dogs takes this classic dog-meets-dough pairing to the next level: each uncured, all-beef dog is instead swaddled in a perfectly flaky-when-cooked puff pastry. We don’t mean to hot dog here, but this marriage of beefy and buttery is pretty genius.’

Sounds familiar, right? Yeah, BECAUSE THESE ARE SAUSAGE ROLLS. America actually thinks it’s just invented Britain’s ancient pastry snack. For shame.

Look, you can have the moon landing and the world’s first mobile phone, but when it comes to sausage rolls (and scotch eggs for that matter) BACK THE HELL OFF.

People on Twitter are putting Americans in their place, and rightly so.

This is almost as funny as the English believing they invented the English language.

* Trader Joes?  Hipsters on a budget?  Gourmet foods, organic foods, vegetarian foods, unusual frozen foods, imported foods, domestic and imported wine and beer (where local law permits), "alternative" food items, and staples such as bread, cereal, eggs, dairy, coffee, and produce. Non-food items include personal hygiene products, household cleaners, vitamins, pet food, plants, and flowers. 

The writer of the article doesn't have a clue or has probably never been into a Trader Joes.  The writer "Oliver" doesn't even know that Trader Joes is GERMAN OWNED.  So where does this "Americans Claim" nonsense come from?  A German owned retail chain certainly does not represent Americans at all. Wait I know.  Maybe Trump had something to do with this.

*Meat stuffed in dough originated from the Greeks and the Romans.

Just my two cents. No offense  ;D

When I was in highschool, during the breaks the janitor tried to sell us something absolutely flavourless, but looking like that, calling it "Würstchen im Schlafrock" (Sausages in dressing gown). Can´t tell, whether he adapted the recipe from the US or the UK. Could have been from both. They weren´t a success, politely said, and he had to take them home again, eating all himself or whatever.

When it comes to hotdogs Thailand wins hands down!  there everywhere ...

Wiki

The wrapping of meat or other foodstuffs into dough can be traced back to the Classical Greek or Roman eras. However sausage rolls in the modern sense of meat surrounded by rolled pastry, appear to have been conceived at the beginning of the 19th century in France. From the beginning, use was made of flaky pastry, which in turn originated with the Hungarian croissant of the late 17th century. Early versions of the roll with pork as a filler proved popular in London during the Napoleonic Wars and it became identified as an English foodstuff.
