Simple Southern Supper

I was originally going to name this recipe "Simple Sunday Supper", which would've worked as well. But since it's Monday, I'll just go with Southern instead. Yesterday was extremely warm here at the cottage, and I was kind of tired, had left over salad in the fridge and a perfect cantaloupe chilling. Thankfully, I had some sausage that I had crumbled and browned in the freezer, a tube of crescent rolls, and a block of cream cheese. Therefore I had dinner! And you what? JD loved it and raved about it for the rest of the evening. Simple. Southern. Supper. Delicious...

Sausage pinwheels
Tossed salad with blue cheese dressing
Cantaloupe slices

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
1 pound of breakfast sausage
1- 8 ounce package cream cheese
2- 8 ounce packages of crescent rolls

Crumble and brown one pound of breakfast sausage. Drain the fat.

Soften one eight ounce block of cream cheese. Mix the cream cheese and sausage well, in a medium bowl.

Roll the crescent dough out, keeping the dough in one piece, by pinching the edges together. 

Spread the sausage/cream cheese mixture onto the dough, and place it in the freezer for about five minutes. This will make it much easier to roll it up!

Now, roll the dough up from the long end, so you'll have more pinwheels :)

Keep rolling, being careful not to tear the dough.

Almost there....

If it's warm in your kitchen, as it was in mine, go ahead and place the roll back into the freezer for a couple of minutes, so it will be easy to slice.

Slice the roll into one inch pieces.

At this point my mouth was watering!

I baked mine for about twenty five minutes, until the pinwheels were golden brown. Check them after the first fifteen minutes and every few minutes after that.

Perfect supper on a warm evening! I can't begin to tell you just how well the sausage in the pinwheels, the cantaloupe and the blue cheese in the salad dressing all complimented one another! Tasty!
