HOW DO YOU MAKE MINI SAUSAGE ROLLS?

These minis are so easy! 20 minutes assembly and 25 for cooking… and your wahla, you’re done!

  • STEP ONE – Roll out refrigerated pie crust and let sit for 10 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • STEP TWO – Brown the sausage in a skillet over medium heat until brown and not pink in the center. Drain on paper towels. (non-stick skillet preferred)
  • STEP THREE – Roll out cold pie crust and cut with a biscuit cutter starting from the outer perimeter of the circle. You should be about to get 12 or 13 circles.

  • STEP SIX – Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper that has been sprayed with spray oil.
  • STEP SEVEN – Sprinkle Everything But the Bagel Seasoning on top of the rolls.

EASY INGREDIENT SUBSTITUTIONS

Meat Substitutes

Of course, you don’t have to use chicken sausage…any kind of pork sausage. Breakfast sausage or little smokies…anything meat and cylinder will do.

If meat isn’t your thing try the Beyond Meat, meatless products that taste almost like meat but aren’t…you know the fake stuff? Actually, what I have tried in the meatless meat department is pretty darn good!

A cold stick of your favorite cheese would be delicious. Jalapeno Cheddar…Cheddar…Mozzerella…Jack…Colby Jack…I’m definately making these with cheese next time, LOL!

CRUST SUBSTITUTIONS

The crust substitutions are endless and more than likely you already have a few on hand if your out of pie crust.

Reduced fat cresent rolls, biscuits, tortillas (cut into forths), crustless bread (rolled flat), 2 ingredients Weight Watcher Dough, puff pastry, phyllo dough…so many options!

HELPFUL RECIPE TIPS

Can these be made ahead?

Yes, they sure can. Follow Steps 1 through 5 then freeze on a flat sheet for about 45 minutes. Transfer to a ziplock freezer bag and store for not more than 2 months. Unthaw for about 30 minutes at room temperature then sprinkle with Everything But the Bagel seasoning. Spray tops with spray oil and then cook as directed above.

Do these keep well in the refridgerator?

Yes! They keep very well up to about a week. Perfect for “on the go” little hand snacks! To warm up, microwave for about 30 seconds or Air Fry them for about 2 minutes on 370.
