Sausage Pinwheels

sausage pinwheels on Katy's Kitchen
Easter is right around the corner and I'm so excited to be heading home tonight to spend time with family. Know what I else I'm excited about? Coupons. Last week I had some awesome coupons to Kroger. It was 3/$5 on Pillsbury products and 2/$5 on Bob Evans sausage so I had the great idea of making one of my favorite brunch foods. I always remember making these sausage pinwheels with my mom, especially on holidays like Easter or Christmas. They are easy to make and taste absolutely delicious. I like them with just sausage and crescent rolls, but you can also add in cheese, onion, or herbs! Here's how to make them:
two ingredient sausage pinwheels
Only 2 ingredients!  Before they made the seamless crescent sheet, I used to have to use a rolling pin on crescent roll dough.

Roll out the dough on a baking sheet. Spread sausage evenly on top.

Roll the dough up "hotdog style".

Use a sharp knife to cut pinwheels about 3/4 in to 1 in thick.

Simply bake the pinwheels in a 350 degree oven for 12-18 minutes until golden. They get a little greasy in the oven so transfer them to another plate after they're done baking. If you plan on adding any cheese or veggies, do so before rolling them up! Serve warm.
