Sausage Pinwheels

I wanted to remind and share with everyone what I like to call an oldie but a goodie. I have made these sausage pinwheels twice now in recent months and each time they were a hit. They are sooo simple to make and a crowd pleaser for brunches, tailgating, or just because. So tuck this little recipe away a use it on a rainy day.

Sausage Pinwheels

- 2 Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations (This is just the crescent rolls in a can but without the seams. You can find it in the same section as the crescent rolls. If you can't find it just use the regular crescent rolls.)
- 1 16oz tube of sausage (I use Jimmy Dean Hot)
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup of fresh chives

Preheat oven to 350
Lightly flour a work surface and unroll the crescent dough until it is flat.
Spread 1/2 of the uncooked sausage on top of the dough. Be careful not to tear the dough.
Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese
Sprinkle with half of the chopped chives.
Start at one of the long side and roll to form a pinwheel.
I wrap mine up in wax paper or saran wrap and pop into the freezer for about 10 minutes. This allows the dough to firm back up and makes it easier to cut.
Cut dough into 1-2 inch slices and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Cook at 350 for 16-19 minutes.
Repeat these directions with the remaining ingredients.
Makes about 20 pinwheels.

I like to serve mine with a simple sauce of equal parts yellow mustard and mayo. Delicious!
