My poor hubby has been neglected lately. He gets up and heads to work in the morning without breakfast most of the time. I was looking through my cookbooks for something hearty, quick, and easy that I can make him for breakfast. This not only looked easy enough, the sound so good!
These would make a fabulous addition to a brunch buffet. You could serve them with some scrambled eggs for a complete breakfast. They could even be turned into an appetizer.
Tide You Over Tuesday: Breakfast Sausage Pinwheels
- 1 11-ounce can refrigerated French bread dough
- 2 tablespoons butter melted
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 8 ounces reduced-fat pork sausage cooked and crumbled (such as Jimmy Dean)
- 3/4 cup 3 ounces shredded Swiss cheese
- Cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Find lengthwise seam in dough. Beginning at seam, gently unroll dough into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 13 x 8-inch rectangle; brush with butter, leaving a 1/2-inch border.
- Combine sage, salt, and sausage. Sprinkle sausage mixture evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border; top with cheese. Starting with a long side, roll dough up, jelly-roll fashion; press seam to seal (do not seal ends of roll).
- Cut 1 (1/2-inch-thick) crosswise slice from each end; discard. Slice roll crosswise into 12 (1/2-inch-thick) pieces; arrange in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
- Bake at 350° for 28 minutes or until golden.
