Yummy to My Tummy: Sausage Pinwheels

These are a family favorite with Justin's family & are great for breakfast or as an appetizer. They also freeze & reheat very well. Mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty as Karen's usually do, but perhaps I'll improve with practice. Enjoy!
Sausage Pinwheels

1 lb ground pork sausage (I use the hot kind)
2 8-oz cans crescent rolls
1 8-oz pkg cream cheese, softened

Brown sausage & drain. Stir in cream cheese until well blended. (I found it helped to heat it just a bit.)

Form 1 large rectangle with each can of rolls. Spread 1/2 of the sausage mixture onto each rectangle. Roll up lengthwise to form a long roll. Slice with a serrated knife into 1/4 inch slices & place on lightly greased cookie sheets. (Chilling the rolls in the freezer for a few minutes before slicing helps to make prettier slices.)

Bake at 350 degrees about 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes about 40 pinwheels.

We love those pinwheels. Sometimes to add some spice, we will add some chopped green chilies and they are tasty!
