Sausage Pinwheels

Everybody needs a quick breakfast every now and again. This recipe fills that bill, and it is also great warmed up the next day.  I serve these pinwheels almost every time we have overnight guests because most people really like these.  Hope your family enjoys!

grace and peace,

Sausage Pinwheels

2 cans Crescent Rolls
1 Roll of Jimmy Dean Sausage or your favorite brand

Open each can of crescent rolls.  Lay out each can into 2 rectangles like the above picture.  Next, sprinkle raw sausage over each rectangle.  When you are finished, you will have 4 rectangles.  (If your family is smaller than mine, you can use 1 can of crescent rolls and a half roll of sausage).

Roll each rectangle up in a jelly roll style.  Cut each rectangle into 5 slices.  Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until the rolls are brown.  

You can serve these with an egg dish or a side of fruit.  These are our quick breakfast for those days that I want to cook, but I don't have much time.

 Another variation of these rolls is to cook the crumbled sausage in a skillet.  Then sprinkle the cooked sausage onto the rectangles of crescent rolls.  Next, crumble cream cheese on top of the sausage.  Roll up and slice into 5 pieces.  Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake in 375 oven for about 15 minutes.  My brother, who is a retired fireman, serves these particular pinwheels.  He fell in love them with them while working at the fire station.  They made them for breakfast a lot.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the newest member of our family, Lynryd.  (I didn't name him. There is a story with his name.  I also didn't bring him home.  There is also a story with that, just in case you were wondering).

Josh, our future Marine that will be leaving in 6 weeks, came in the other evening with this puppy.  He gave it to his siblings and told them it was a gift from him.  He looked at me and smiled.  I glared back at him and told him he better start talking and fast!  He explained that a girl talked him into going to the pound with her.  They were putting puppies to sleep because the pound is so full of unwanted dogs.  Josh and Morgan picked out this little tyke and brought him home.  They both were counting on Michael and I saying, "Yes."  As you can see, he was right.

Missy has enjoyed his company, and the little guy is always with her.  She allows him to pull and bite her lips, neck, and belly.  I am amazed that she is so gentle with him!

When she has had enough of him, she takes herself upstairs and goes to bed in our room.

 Josh named him Lynryd because his best friend was suppose to get the puppy's brother and name him Skynyrd.  Then there would be Lynryd Skynryd.  However, the other kid decided to ask his mother before bringing the puppy home, and she said, "NO!"  Now we are just stuck with a very cute puppy with a very bad name!
