Celebrity Cook-Along -Pillsbury Dough Boy

I'm joining in with Lynn for her monthly celebrity recipe. This month she is featuring the Pillsbury Dough Boy! Go here for lots of fun and more recipes.

I want to share a favorite recipe my family has used for years. We always have it on Christmas morning! I like to have it periodically throughout the year as well.

Sausage pinwheels are very easy to make:
We love them with scrambled eggs for breakfast, but I have also taken them to parties as hors d'oeuvres. Sometimes they even make it to my tea party table!

Directions and recipe will be at the bottom.


Sausage Pinwheels

2 cans (tube) Pillsbury Crescent rolls

1 pound Jimmy Dean sausage

Unwrap 1 can of rolls and press perforations together to

form a large rectangle, on top of wax paper or foil.

Cut sausage tube in half. Drop balls of sausage on top:

Spread sausage over the Crescent roll rectangle

Spreading to the edges.

Roll the long edge jelly-roll-fashion. I use the wax

paper to help make the roll.

It’s best to chill the pinwheel roll an hour, or overnight,

this helps enable easier slicing.

Slice the pinwheel roll into ¼ inch slices. Place onto

a large cookie sheet (I line it with foil and spray it.)

Place on cookie sheet:

Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until brown.

Makes 20 - 24 slices.

Serve with scrambled eggs. Also good with honey drizzled on top!

You may prepare the second can of rolls and the other half

of sausage the same day, or another day.

Makes a nice Father's Day Breakfast!

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com

Hi Katherine...

Mmmm...your sausage pinwheels look and sounds absolutely scrumptious, my friend! I have never heard of this recipe but we (honey and me) would love it...what's not to love about sausage and bread? Hehe! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us...great tutorial too, by the way! I'll definitely be giving this recipe a try!

Well dear friend, it has been way too long since I have been by for a visit. I was just tickled pink when I found your sweet note on my Tea Rose bedroom post. I'm sooo glad that you came by...I have missed you! I do hope that my note is finding you and your family all doing well, Darlin'!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

Oooooh these look so delicious!! I always have a tube of sausage meat in the freezer and I also buy the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls often so the next time I buy some I will definitely be trying your recipe out. I love recipes like this, so simple and yet so scrumptious. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe with us:-) xoxo

Hi Katherine,
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I looooove the idea of calling the "flower bags" cache. very clever! So much better than what I was calling them.
