A Little Bakin'

Gentle Friends, over the looong weekend I got a wild hair and wanted to make some "Sausage Pinwheels."  I think I might have done a post about them a long time ago, but they never hurt from a re-posting... a little back story...These are something my mom used to make and I 've been eating them for decades...or for as long as I can remember.  There are only three ingredients and they are super easy to make.......

... my tweaks to the original incarnation... are to use 1/2 & 1/2 and 2 lbs of sausage, 1lb regular and 1lb hot mixed together...

... you start off by making one recipe of the Bisquick biscuits, which you roll out into a single thin sheet of dough about 1/4" thick...

...over the biscuit sheet spread in a single layer the sausage up to about an inch or so of the edge...

...then just roll up this into a log and sort of squish it slightly so that the log is about the same thickness all along its length...

...  I then wrap the entire thing in plastic wrap, then in foil wrapping it tightly along the edges so that the biscuit doesn't dry out... I usually make this a day ahead of when I want to bake some - letting this rest and sit in the fridge overnight does let the log slice up easier when cold ...

... preheat the oven to 350 degrees, cover a jelly roll pan with parchment paper and slice the "log" into 1/2" slices, you can slice them thinner or thicker, but the thickness of the slice will change the baking time.... with 1/2" slices they take about 30ish minutes to bake...

...  basically bake until they are golden brown, serve warm !!

That's about it for today sports fans.... let's leave off with a cute who hound shot......

...  Lolly loves warm from the dryer jeans and sweats....  have a super weekend!!

Take care,


  1. One of my co workers at Oak Ridge Methodist Hospital used to make these for parties we would have. And since that was about 40 years ago and I have not forgotten them they have to be good!! I have done this with the crescent roll dough as well Edgar!

  2. What a sweet little Lolly face!

  3. These look so good, I may have to try them very soon.

  4. You seem to be a good cooker :)
    Your little pet is looking so cute !!!!
    Have a nice week-end Edgar,
