Paula Deen’s Sausage Spirals


I’m on a breakfast kick so here’s another goodie for breakfast that is easy and delicious. I served it with The Lady’s Perfect Scrambled Eggs (Paula Deen) from Recipezaar for the perfect Paula Deen breakfast (without a TON of butter, either, y’all). The sausage recipe can easily be doubled.

Paula Deen’s Sausage Spirals

1 8 ounce can refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 pound ground sausage, any flavor you like

Open can of dough, unroll dough carefully, pinch perforations together to seal.

Spread the sausage over the top of the dough to make a thin layer.

Starting at the short end, roll jelly-roll fashion. Cut into slices about 1/2 inch or so. At this point you can chill the spirals in the fridge for about 30 minutes or you can bake right away.

Place spirals about 1/2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. In a 375º oven, bake spirals for 18-20 minutes or until sausage in thoroughly cooked and crescent dough is golden brown.

Makes about 12 swirls


Happy Cooking!

  1. I’m military stationed overseas in Germany right now and the faster you can heat up breakfast and eat it is always best. I haven’t had a chance to make them yet but to cook them in the night prior and microwave them the next morning sounds like a quick and efficient breakfast.

  2. These are totally yummy! A few ideas:
    * My local Harris Teeter store has “crescent recipe solutions” in a tube with the Pop N Fresh guy on them – crescent roll dough without the perforations – perfect for these!
    * I left them rolled up in the fridge overnight and sliced the next day, also kept them refrigerated in between cookie sheets full in the oven. The more room temp they get, the harder they are to slice and stay nicely shaped.
    * I added a little cheese, but wish I’d been more careful about it. Any chese-on-cheese areas will prevent them from staying tightly rolled up, so if you add grated cheese use it sparingly and spread it out. The cheese made it crispier and added a nice taste.
    * Caution – highly addictive and you can’t eat just one. Or two. Or three.

    • Great suggestions! I have a tube of the crescent roll dough that’s all in one piece and this would be a great way to use it up. Thanks!

  3. I’ve looked everywhere for this recipe. I want to make these ahead and keep refrigerated for a quick breakfast with eggs on Christmas morning. Thanks for sharing. Now I won’t have to spend so much time in the kitchen that I can spend with my grandbabies.
