Sausage Swirls

Fall has arrived here at the Cozy Kitchen. The leaves are falling. I love how these last few leaves are holding this sweet nest in place.
It's Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's!

I have learned that the simplest pleasures bring the greatest joy. I've learned that it's nearly impossible for anyone to wake up in a bad mood on Sunday morning when they lazily wake up to the smell of Miss Paula Deen's sausage swirls wafting into their bedroom. Every time I passed one of my children in the house yesterday, I heard..."I love you mom".
These itty bitty bites make my family swoon.

{ this was one of two platters that I served. Both platters were gone in six minutes. I need to double this the next time! }

Mr. B even mentioned them several hours later as I was folding laundry.
I just smiled and my heart felt soooooo happy. I'm ready for fall, and cozy meals in the upcoming months. I like to serve these Christmas Eve morning, since they are so easy. You can even prepare them the night before, and pop them in the oven the next morning.

Sausage Swirls by Paula Deen
Two 8 oz cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 pound ground sausage ( I like Jimmy Dean Sage )

Separate 1 can of dough and form into 4 rectangles.

Firmly press perforations to seal.
Take the uncooked sausage and cut into 8 chunks.
Using 4 chunks of the sausage, spread thin layer on each rectangle.
Starting at the short end, roll each rectangle tightly into a cylinder. Repeat with other can of dough and sausage.
Place on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 30 minutes.
Cut each roll into 4 slices.

Preheat oven to 375.
Place sausage swirls 1/2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 18-20 minutes.

*We love to dip them in mustard! Yum!
