Despite what you think, you did not just invent the sausage roll.
It's well known that a lot of the United States' favourite things are heavily-inspired by existing British things.
We didn't say much when you came for some of our best TV shows.
The butcherings of The Inbetweeners, Skins, Shameless and The IT Crowd were largely left alone (we admit, your versions of the Office and House of Cards were pretty good).
But this is a step too far.
American supermarket Trader Joe's (it's a bit like Whole Foods but more affordable), are now patting themselves on the back for selling "puffdogs" what they describe as "a twist on the class dog-meets-dough pairing of a hot dog" but "instead swaddled in a perfectly flaky-when-cooked puff pastry".
this marriage of beefy and buttery is pretty genius.
Sounds pretty familiar right?
Well this is how the Oxford English dictionary defines a sausage roll:
noun, British, a piece of sausage meat wrapped in pastry and baked.
