Sausage Pinwheels

I think should call these Biscuits and Gravy Rolls or maybe just Addiction Rolls. They are definitely not healthy, not low in fat and (if you use brand name crescent rolls) not very frugal. But they are easy to make, have only three ingredients and they are very, very addicting.

This recipe is for a big batch, because I knew we'd be munching on these throughout the morning and lunch time. If it's more than you need, you can easily reduce the recipe by half.

Sausage Pinwheels

1 pound pork breakfast sausage
1 8-ounce package of cream cheese (or 1 cup of yogurt cheese), softened
2 tubes refrigerated crescent rolls

Crumble and cook sausage in large skillet, making sure to break sausage up into small bits. Drain; rinse if desired.

Combine sausage with cream cheese; set aside.

Heat oven to 375°F.

Open both cans of crescent rolls and press or roll into one large rectangle, sealing seams at perforations.

Spread sausage and cheese mixture over dough to within 1/2 inch of edges.

Starting on a long side, roll dough jelly-roll fashion. Cut roll into 24 even slices.

Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets (I recommend parchment paper, but it's not absolutely necessary). Bake rolls until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes not enough 24 rolls.
