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 make these every Christmas and they don't last long. I spread mustard onto the crescent rolls, then the sausage and sprinkle with cheddar cheese before rolling up.

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.

I absolutely love these! My father-in-law loves for me to make these. I roll out my crescent rolls, add the sausage, roll up and stick in the freezer for til I am ready to cook. This makes them easier to slice. A local restuarant sells 12 of them served with oney mustard as an appetizer for over $ 5.00. I am glad I am glad I know how to make my own.

I did not let these cool overnight because of time. To make cutting a snap, cut with dental floss or thread. Just wrap around the roll and pull tight and you will have perfect individual pinwheels. Works great for cinnamon rolls also. I added cheese and used two cans of rolls. We really enjoyed these and would have again. Quick and easy. Thank you for a good recipe!

These are awesome! The full pound of sausage was a little too much but still delicious. Next time I may only use 1/2-3/4 of a pound. I also considered adding some cheddar cheese and may do so next time. Thanks for posting this great recipe!

Lovely, quick and accommodating. I used two rolls of the crescents as others had mentioned. It worked but there was a little too much "roll". Next time I will do it with just one tube. Thanks.

Made these for a Men's Breakfast at church and for a function at work. They were a hit both times! My boys also love them. I only used 1/2 lb of sausage per sheet of crescent rolls and that was fine. Very quick & easy to make. And, if you can get the crescent rolls & sausage on sale, very inexpensive too! Perfect for brunches, potlucks, or appetizers and great that they can be served hot or room temp.

Made these for breakfast. I used Jimmy Dean light sausage (12oz) and it was perfect. Not greasy at all. I baked them for 17 minutes. These would be great for an appetizer as well.
