I’m back today with one last recipe for your Super Bowl spread. Just in case you haven’t finished your menu, you know. Not all of us plan weeks in advance. I’m just sayin’. And if you’re down to the last minute and need one more treat, this is a great one. It’s simple. Guys, girls and kids all love it and you probably have everything you need to make it in your fridge right now.

These little Sausage Swirls use three simple ingredients. Crescent rolls (just the whack-a-can kind), mustard, and bulk pork sausage. You can also lighten these up very nicely by using the reduced fat rolls (they’re just as good as the regular) and turkey sausage.

How to Make Sausage Swirls

Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees.

Spread each of the rectangles with your choice of mustard. I have made these with both a spicy brown mustard and a very grainy mustard. I prefer the grainy type but you use whatever you want.

Then gently spread the sausage on top of the mustard. It’s much easier to spread if you let the sausage sit out at room temperature for 30-45 minutes beforehand.

Cutting and shaping sausage swirls.

Now, roll each of the rectangles up lengthwise into a long cylinder. At this point, you can chill them covered until you’re ready to serve. Or if you have hungry folks standing in the kitchen waiting for these, go ahead and cut them into about 1 to 1 1/2″ pieces. Stand each piece up on its end and flatten it gently into a small disk.

Place the swirls on a parchment lined baking sheet and cook for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot.

Serve with additional mustard to spread on each swirl. I sometimes make a dipping sauce with 4 parts mayonnaise, 1 part grainy or spicy brown mustard and a squirt of lemon juice.
