Sausage Pinwheels

A delicious, simple appetizer that is good for a party, cookout, or even to take to a tailgate party.  Makes enough for a crowd.


  • 2 cans Crescent rolls
  • 1 pound sausage
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups 4 Blend Mexican Cheese

Brown the sausage in a skillet and drain.  Add the cream cheese and 4 Blend Mexican Cheese and cook until it is all melted together.  Make sure to turn the heat down to prevent the cheeses from burning. Remove from heat and set aside.

Unroll the Crescent rolls and press seams together.  Spread half of the sausage mixture over one of the cans of Crescent rolls almost to the edges.  Roll up the Crescent roll with the sausage mixture evenly spread starting with the long edge.  Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill completely.  Repeat with the second can of Crescent rolls and the rest of the sausage mixture.

Preheat your oven to 375°.  Unwrap the sausage pinwheels and slice into about 1/4" slices and place on a cookie sheet.  I lined mine with parchment paper.  Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes.  About halfway through cooking, turn over if desired, to brown evenly on both sides.  Serve hot or warm.
