When I was a kid I lived with my grandma and she baked 3 times a week, there was always something good in the kitchen, sugar cookies she would fill with a chocolate icing, raisin filling, fruit pies and cakes and real baking powder biscuits the dinner rolls are called, Parker House rolls, they were so good, made with butter,) yes butter, 2 sticks!! I’ll explain when I share her recipe”) milk, yeast, flour, once mixed, kneaded, and left to rise, they would then be rolled out and cut with a round biscuit cutter, then folded in half and the rest is a secret. I especially remember before I lived with her and we would travel for Thanksgiving, she would always make us turkey sandwiches to take on our trip home with her rolls. That was when I was about 5, when I was younger.
Anyway, I was looking for something new to make for my grandson while he is here for breakfast and this is what I came up with. I’m calling them Sausage roll-ups, buts who’s to say that this is just for breakfast, I would eat these for dinner too. And my husband liked them too but my grandson loved them! And and by the way, this is nothing new, theres pigs-in-a-blanket. But these are my version. Easy Peasy as you can see from the picture above, just 4 steps, I thought, pop the can, fill with sausage, roll up and bake, well according to my recipe theres 14.
I didnt do this but you could reserve sausage and add some to your gravey.
- Diary Case Crescents (2 Packages)
- Your choice of sausage (Turkey or pork)
- Heat oven to 375*
- While oven is heating, cook sausage and break into small pieces, browned all the way through, drain well.
- Open package of crescents, and as you roll them out, keep 2 connected, in a rectangle as shown in picture.
- Press the seam together so it makes it easier to roll after placing sausage.
- On rectangle add your cooked sausage (about 2 Tbsp.) to allow for rolling up.
- Place on parchment paper of silpta baking mat for baking.
- Bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown, depending on how your oven bakes.
- While baking your sausage roll-ups prepare a country gravy:
- 4 tbsp. butter
- 4 tbsp. flour
- 2 1/2 c. milk
- Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Blend in flour, salt and pepper; cook until smooth and bubbly. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling on medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir and boil 1 minute. Makes enough gravy for 8 biscuits.
I love using dairy case biscuits and crescents, you can make quick meals and their always good and filling. Looking for something on the sweet side, try my Easy Crescent Roll Danish
