Sausage Pinwheels Are Perfect for Brunch

by Alli

I love easy to prepare party foods like these Sausage Pinwheels. You can serve them for brunch or at your next party. When you don’t have a lot of time but you need a delicious party food, this is it.

My husband is crazy about these pinwheels and it can’t get any easier than this 2-ingredient party food.

Sausage Pinwheels are easy to make

Crescent rolls are so versatile. You can make so many recipes with these babies. From sweet creations like my easy crescent roll cinnamon rolls to savory rolls like these sausage pinwheels, you can’t go wrong when a recipe begins with crescent rolls.

Sausage Pinwheels

On a lightly floured surface, unroll crescent rolls and press all seams and perforations together. Roll into a 14″ x 10″ rectangle. I usually eyeball it since I’ve made these so many times.

Spread uncooked sausage to within 1/2″ of the edges. I pat the sausage into a large round disc and place it in the middle of the crescent roll dough. Then I lightly press it to within 1/2″ of the edges.

Two Ingredient Sausage Pinwheels

Carefully roll up from the long side. Cut into 12 slices.

Bake Sausage Pinwheels for 14-16 minutes.

Place 1 inch apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375º for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.

A few days ago the grandkids were spending the day and my husband asked if I had the ingredients to make these. I did! While they were munching on these for breakfast, my 7-year-old grandson asked if he could take the leftovers home.

This recipe makes a dozen sausage pinwheels. You may want to double the recipe if you’re serving a large group. No one can eat just one!

Two Ingredient Sausage Pinwheels

The next time you need to take a dish to a party, try these Sausage Pinwheels. They are so delicious and I love the fact that you only need two ingredients – ground sausage and crescent rolls. It can’t get much easier than this.
