Ingredients Needed

  • Cinnamon Rolls: Pillsbury or similar Cinnamon Rolls, not the grands cinnamon roll dough
  • Breakfast sausage: I like to use Jimmy Dean or Jennie-O turkey sausage, the kind that’s already cooked and just needs to be reheated.

How to make Sausage Rolls

  1. If your sausage is raw, then cook it according to package directions. Drain and cool completely.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  3. Remove cinnamon rolls from the package. Using a small but sharp knife, cut around the spiral so that you can unroll the cinnamon roll. Unroll it flat and wrap it around your pork sausage.
  4. Repeat for remaining rolls.
  5. Bake 10-13 minutes until the cinnamon roll is golden brown. Cool slightly before eating. These are good plain, but they’re also good dipped in the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls.
  6. Store in an airtight container or ziploc bag in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can also freeze these rolls for quick morning breakfasts. They’re great for road trips because they can be eaten at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • Like I mentioned before, you can freeze the cooked and cooled rolls. Reheat by wrapping in a paper towel and microwaving for 30-40 seconds or you can pop one in a lunch box and it’ll be defrosted by noon.
  • Use any flavor breakast sausage you like – we love using pre-cooked sausage to make it even easier!
  • You can use crescent rolls for these too like a more traditional pigs in a blanket.
