"My Mama makes these for holiday breakfasts or as appetizers. We love 'em! Use your favorite sausage...we like Jimmy Dean."
Serving Size: 1 (18 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 24
"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."
"I really loved this recipe...everyone in my family loves crescent rolls so this was perfect! I used 1/2 maple flavored sausage and 1/2 regular Jimmy Dean sausage and sprinkled with cheddar cheese before rolling the dough and they were delicious! I can imagine that if you used Italian Sausage, Motzerella cheese and maybe threw in some mushroom bits, these would be great pizza bites to dip in Marinara sause...have to give that a try! Thanks for sharing!"
"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 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."
"Made these as one of many appies I had at a cocktail party recently. So simple to make and they were a hit but next time I would make some with Jimmy Dean Hot sausage as well to add a nice kick. It pays to buy name brand crescent rolls and sausage. Your family and guests will love them."
"Very good recipe and easy to make. I took these on a family trip and they loved them. I made two different kinds though, ham and cheese, and the regular sausage. Thanks for such a versatile recipe!"
"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!"
"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."
"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!"
"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."
"i had no sausage so i made it w/ chopped up pepperoni. it was delicious! kids loved it. so easy i don't know why i didn't come up w/ this myself! thanks for sharing!"
"These were so hummy! I made them with many other breakfast items for a big breakfast on the day of my brother's wedding and everyone loved them!"
"I made these for a snack for Halloween and loved them!"
"Easy to prepare. Quick & tasty. Loved them. Unlike a previous reviewer, I didn't find them too greasy. I think, ultimately, it depends on the type/brand of sausage you use."
"Its true they are very greasy but tasty. I did add cheese to it and it was good."
"These were easy and tasty, but very greasy. I will probably add some cheese if I make them again."
