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.

Smoked Sausage Bites

  • Servings: 30-32 pieces
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


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


  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.
