Sausage Pastry

Sausage Pastry

We’ve been making Jonathan’s Sausage Pinwheels for years around the Hill Hangout. They are one of our go-to breakfasts. We probably make them about once a week, and for whatever reason, that job has always fallen to Jonathan. He’s more patient about spreading the filling on the dough than I am, and he’s a better roller-upper than me. A few weeks ago, however, one of our friends brought a similar dish to Sunday school but it was baked in a pan. I’m not sure why I never thought about how much easier that would be, but it was my first introduction to Sausage Pastry.

To make Sausage Pastry, you’ll need:

1 roll of breakfast sausage, browned and drained
2 cans of crescent rolls (You can use the new non-perforated sheets, but my grocery didn’t have them.)
1 8-oz block of cream cheese, softened
1 8-oz block of cheddar cheese, grated

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, and roll out one can of crescent rolls to form the bottom crust.

Sausage Pastry

Brown, crumble, and drain the sausage. Return it to the warm pan. Mix with cream cheese to make the filling. Spread the filling over the crust dough.

Sausage Pastry

Cover filling with the grated cheddar.

Sausage Pastry

Make a top crust out of the remaining can of crescent rolls.

Sausage Pastry

Bake on 350 degrees until top is slightly golden, usually about 15 minutes.

Sausage Pastry

Slice into squares to serve.

This one is a crowd-pleaser, so you can feel good about taking it to church, school breakfasts, or even as an appetizer.
