Mark’s Pillsbury Crescent Sausage Rolls

For those of you who have become devoted fans of reading about my wife’s cooking adventures, hello! I’m the fan devoted to eating everything you’ve read about. Husband and baby daddy Mark here, and I’m pumped to be guest writing on my wife’s blog.

Now like I said, my wife’s the cook, I just do the eating, but I do have one or two dishes that I can do, and one of them happens to be an appetizer that is great for many reasons. One, it’s a finger food that doesn’t leave your fingers sticky. Two, it’s a crowd pleaser that never has leftovers, but most importantly, Three, and this is for you ladies, it’s so easy, EVEN A HUSBAND CAN DO IT!!!! There are even accounts of fiances, boyfriends, and common-law roommates being able to complete this dish. So here it is, my Pillsbury Crescent Sausage Rolls.

Now I know we’re all busy right now, watching our elected officials compete for who can more calmly announce the End Times via Blizzard, but once the roads are passable and you’re done shoveling out, when you can run to the grocery store the good news is you only need TWO ingredients for this dish, and they’re both in the refrigerated section.

INGREDIENTS

  • One package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • One 16 oz. package of Jimmy Dean Sausage (I prefer Regular, but if you need a kick in your Super Bowl snack, they also make a Hot)

PREP/KEEP IN MIND:

The Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are easiest to work with when they remain cooler, so don’t take out the package and leave it on the counter while you look for a cookie sheet. Also, the Jimmy Dean sausage is sometimes sold refrigerated, sometimes frozen. If you’ve been keeping it in the freezer, make sure it’s fully defrosted in the fridge before beginning.

DIRECTIONS

1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Open up Crescent Rolls and lay out the rectangles onto a non-stick cookie sheet. If you bought a package of six crescent rolls, you’ll have three rectangles of two triangles each.
2) Spread the ground sausage evenly across all three rectangles of Pillsbury.
3) Roll up the three rectangles the long way, so that you have three long rolls.
4) Slice the rolls into bite size pieces.
5) Spread them out across the cookie sheet so that none are touching.
6) Toss into your pre-heated oven and cook for 12-15 minutes. Some will prefer a doughier taste, some a crunchier taste, so just keep an eye on them, but dudes, remember, opening the oven door will make the whole process take longer.
7) Dump into a bowl and serve to the excited throngs.

If oven time is at a premium on Game Day, you can always throw these puppies in the fridge after Step 5 and throw them into the oven whenever the VP of Kitchen and Life Organization deems it convenient. This appetizer, combined with my wife’s beloved Kielbasa and Brown Sugar recipe, will give your Superbowl Party all the protein deliciousness you could possibly desire!! Enjoy everyone and Go Pats!!!!
