My Mama makes these for holiday breakfasts or as appetizers. We love 'em! Use your favorite sausage...we like Jimmy Dean.
- 1 lb bulk sausage
- 1 can crescent roll dough
- Take dough out of can in a whole sheet.
- Press perforated edges together to form one sheet of dough.
- Spread sausage over dough evenly.
- Starting with a long edge, roll dough and sausage into a log.
- Refrigerate log overnight or until firm.
- Slice 1/2 inch pieces from the log and place on baking sheet.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 12-18 minutes.
These are so good! Watch the time, the first batch got too dark. Using parchment paper helped with sticking to the pan. I added a light amount of shredded sharp cheese on top before rolling up. I used two cans of rolls in two different brands and could tell a difference. Next time I will opt for the higher quality brand of crescent rolls only.
I made these up and stored them in plasticware for a recent camping trip breakfast addition. Everyone loved them! They were hard to stop eating and this was even being served at room temperature. I used two cans of cheap crescent roll dough (next time I WILL spring for the .40 cent more stuff) and 1 lb of medium bulk sausage split over the two dough rolls. Savory! I can even see this being served as an appetizer maybe with some ro-tel cheese dip as a side! (sinful!) or some chives and sr cream dollop on top!
If anyone gave these less than a 5 star I don't understand how...these where PERFECT for get-n-go breakfast with your favorite jam or jelly on the side. My BF loved them since he is a driver they were great for his schedule. I will make these over and over again...maybe next time I will use bacon and eggs....hmmm.
