Bob Evans® Original Recipe Sausage Roll, at room temperature
1 (8 ounce) can
crescent roll dough
We make this but with a much more flavorful twist. We buy two cans of Crescent Rolls. After cooking your roll of sausage (hot for more flavor) We then add an 8 oz block of Cream cheese,cubed into the skillet along with chopped Jalapenos (to taste)with the cooked sausage. The warm sausage will help melt the cream cheese. When it is all melted we use use 4 crescent rolls that have not been separated and put the filling in the center lenghtwise...then pinch together to form "snakes" or rolls. Refrigerate these rolls...then cut into coins about later so that you have a crescent roll outer with the filling in the center. With Two cans of crescent rolls and the cream cheese added...it will make approximately 96 coins. Bake as directed on the crescent roll can.
Oh good golly. I didn't realize I could screw up such an elementary recipe. For starters, DON'T forget that "freeze for 15 minutes" bit. Even when I did that, my crescent rolls got too thin and tore. The pinwheel didn't stay together and the filling spilled out and they didn't look nearly as pretty as this picture. The taste was pretty good (I added some green pepper and onion). I used the garlic butter flavored rolls which added a nice flavor. I never thought I'd say this but adding shredded cheese didn't really enhance this dish. Leave it off and save a few fat grams.
I make this often and my family loves it. I do cook the sausage before spreading on dough and I also add shredded cheddar.
I make pinwheels all the time using this same concept. The only difference is that I use deli turkey meat instead of sausage and I sprinkle on some cheddar cheese before rolling. They go great with honey mustard or your favorite dipping sauce!
the trick is DON'T PRE-COOK the sausage! Roll the raw sausage (sage is great) on the crescent roll - or Grands biscuits (less greasy!) and then bake.
To give these a bit more flavor, add a little garlic powder and some dried parsley to the biscuit dough while mixing. I also sprinkled on a little grated cheddar cheese over top the sausage before rolling. These are yummy!
These were delicious and very easy to make...a keeper!
Very easy...great for brunches.
