We had these sausage roll ups for breakfast last weekend. They were extremely quick and easy to make, and they tasted delicious. We served the sausage roll ups with some amazing buttermilk syrup. The buttermilk syrup is a must. It makes the dish. We made the syrup the day before and reheated it in the microwave for a couple of minutes before serving. The syrup would also be great on pancakes, waffles, biscuits or even ice cream! This is a new favorite in our house.
Sausage Roll Ups with Buttermilk Syrup
Sausage Roll Ups
1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
8 breakfast sausage links
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook sausage in skillet until lightly brown, approximately 5 minutes. Drain. It will not be cooked all the way through.
Unroll crescent roll dough into 8 triangles. Place one cooked sausage onto one end of a dough triangle and roll dough around sausage. Place on baking sheet and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until rolls are golden brown. Pour buttermilk syrup over rolls and serve.
1 ½ cups buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup butter
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add buttermilk and sugars. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and whisk in baking soda and vanilla. It will bubble up and double in size. The bubbles will go away as it cools. Store in the refrigerator. It will keep for about a month.
