Crescent roll dough Vegetable oil Garlic Ground breakfast sausage Kosher salt Black pepper Cream cheese Cheddar cheese Green onion
Cook garlic for 1-3 minutes. Add the sausage and cook until it’s browned and cooked through. Drain the excess fat.
Stir the cream cheese into the sausage in a bowl. Season to taste. Let the mixture cool in the refrigerator until it’s room temperature, about 15 to 20 min.
Spread the sausage mixture evenly over the dough leaving some excess space. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese and green onions over the filling. Roll the dough into a log.
Wrap the log tightly in the plastic wrap and freeze for 20 minutes. While the dough is chilling in the freezer, preheat the oven to 375ºF.
Once the dough is firm, cut the log into 8 equal slices and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving space in between for them to expand.
Place the pan in the oven and bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until the sausage pinwheels are golden brown.
They’re versatile enough to go from brunch to dinner party with ease. Yes!
If you love creamy, cheesy dips and have a soft spot for crescent roll appetizers, these sausage pinwheels will be your new favorite!
