Sausage Pinwheels


These are super easy but every time I make them it seems that someone asks for the recipe so I thought it was time to add them to the blog!  Sausage pinwheels always take me back to Christmas nights at my great aunt and uncle's house drinking Hawaiian punch watching A Christmas Story.  My great aunt Marie makes them perfectly!!!  Here is what we do...

Sausage Pinwheels
1 pound Hot Jimmy Dean Sausage
1 tube regular crescent rolls

Roll out the crescent roll and spread the sausage over top.  I prefer to use Hot Jimmy Dean sausage. Roll it up like a jellyroll and wrap in aluminum foil.  Place in the freezer for several hours (this will make it easier to cut later).  Remove from the freezer and slice.  Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until sausage is brown and done.  
Serve HOT!!!
Pin It!

  1. THis sounds amazing. I am having a brunch on Thursday and am going to do this. Can it be in the freezer overnight?

  2. Freezing them overnight is an excellent idea as it will make cutting them cleaner. I hope you like them and THANK YOU so much for your comment!

    Take care

  5. HI there! The sausage is not pre-cooked. What I like to use is the Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage that comes in a log. Let me know if you have any other questions!
