Smoked Sausage Bites

I had a HUGE order of groceries to pick up the other day but still had a few leftovers in our freezer and refrigerator I wanted to use up. I am trying to stay simple and what can be more simple than a charcuterie? I had a ring of smoked sausage to use and was looking for something different that I could add as a simple hot appetizer to the side of a charcuterie.

Trying to get us back into cooking dinner at home after several weeks of ordering out and leftovers I needed to start simple and this was perfect!

Verdict: My kids were skeptical of these. They are not big fans of rolled dough but humored me. They really liked them! I think that they could dip them in honey mustard helped make them fun. I let them choose ranch, honey mustard, or whole grain mustard dipping sauces.

We added cheese, crackers, dark chocolate, fruit slices, and veggie slices rounded out our meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14 oz) package Smoked Sausage link (Andouille, or Kielbasa are also good)
  • 1 package Refrigerated Crescent Roll Sheet

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare muffins pans by spraying the cups generously with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out crescent roll dough and cut sausage into 1/2 or 1/3 place a piece of the sausage at one end of the rectangle and roll up in the dough. Press the seam to seal. It should wrap just about 2 times around the sausage.
  3. Cut the dough wrapped sausages into half inch slices and place one in each muffin cup.
  4. If desired, sprinkle a teaspoon of cheese or poppy seeds over each piece.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing sausage bites from the cups.
  6. Serve immediately with dipping sauces of your choice.

    I do similar meals but I am baking the whole sausage wrapped in the dough. I like your idea of making them bites. A great appetizer too that leaves room for many more creations.
