Sausage Pinwheels with Canned Biscuits

These Sausage Biscuit Pinwheels are a staple at our house. We’ve been making these for years! They are effortless to make and taste fantastic! There are only two ingredients in this recipe – sausage and canned biscuits. SO simple yet SO delicious! People go crazy over these things whenever I take them to a party. I usually double the recipe and never have any leftovers. You must give these a try ASAP!

How to Make Sausage Biscuit Pinwheels

These pinwheels are super simple to make. Start with separating each biscuit into two layers. You will have a total of 16 biscuit rounds. Place the biscuit halves on parchment paper – 4 across and 4 down, touching edges. Use a rolling pin to create a rectangle. You may need a little flour to make sure the dough doesn’t stick. After the dough is rolled out, top with raw sausage. Spread the sausage evenly on top of the dough. Starting with the long edge, roll up the biscuits. Slice dough into 1-inch pieces and bake.

  • I use Tennessee Pride or Jimmy Dean hot sausage. Feel free to substitute turkey sausage.
  • Do NOT cook the sausage before spreading it on the biscuit dough. The sausage will cook along with the biscuits.
  • Use a serrated knife to easily cut the dough.
  • Feel free to add some shredded cheddar cheese on top of the sausage, if desired. These are also great with a can of diced green chiles added on top of the sausage.
  • If you want to use homemade biscuit dough instead of canned, here is our favorite homemade biscuit recipe: https://www.plainchicken.com/2-ingredient-cream-biscuits/

What to Serve with Sausage Pinwheels

We usually serve these pinwheels for breakfast with some eggs, grits, and cinnamon rolls. These also make a great party and tailgating appetizer! They taste great hot out of the oven or warmed to room temperature. Feel free to dip them into some Jalapeño Ranch Dip, salsa, or Zippy Pineapple Dip. YUM! I have these on the menu for Christmas morning. I can not wait! Give this recipe a try the next time you need a simple and delicious breakfast/appetizer!
