KITCHEN KREATION: Sausage & Cheddar Pinwheels

Tonight, the hubby and I decided to have breakfast for dinner.

He often indulges me when I find a new recipe and tonight was no exception. I found this one on and it was originally titled Bacon & Cheddar Pinwheels which we have made before and they turned out great.

This time I decided to switch it up a bit and make it with the Jimmy Dean "All Natural" sausage. Hubby said that they turned out great. We scrambled up a couple of eggs, added a side of grapes, and a glass of orange juice and breakfast (for dinner) was served.

1/2 package of Jimmy Dean sausage
1 package Pillsbury crescent rolls
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 Tbsp Philadelphia Sour Cream & Chives cream cheese
1/4 cup diced onions
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat oil in skillet and saute onions and garlic until tender.
  3. Add sausage and cook until brown. Stir to combine and drain well.
  4. Unroll dough. Separate into 2 long rectangles. Press each into 12x4-inch rectangle.
  5. Firmly press perforations to seal.
  6. Evenly spread cream cheese over crescent dough.
  7. Add sausage, onion, and garlic mixture, then add cheddar cheese.
  8. Starting with one short side, roll up each rectangle; press edge to seal.
  9. Wrap in saran wrap and place in freezer for 10-20 minutes.
  10. With serrated knife, cut each roll into 1/2-3/4 inch slices.
  11. Place cut side down on ungreased cookie sheet
  12. Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet and enjoy.
