Every year for Christmas my Mom makes a huge batch of sausage dip. We absolutely love it and will eat on it for days! It is rich and creamy with just a hint of spice and loaded with yummy Jimmy Dean sausage!

So, I wanted to figure out a way to use up the left over sausage dip. I figured everything is better in crescent rolls and was I right! Skip using the leftovers, I’m going to be making them into these pinwheels from now on!

I got all my ingredients for this recipe from Walmart ( @Walmart ) . I love shopping at Walmart for my large weekly shopping trip and stocking up on supplies. I tend to use a lot of Great Value Walmart brand items too for my recipes, like the one today.

Ingredients
  • 1 package Jimmy Dean Sausage, original or regular flavor
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cans crescent roll dough
  • 10 oz can dice tomatoes with green chilies, drained
Instructions
Sausage Dip
  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, crumble and brown the sausage until cooked through. Drain excess fat, I even put the cooked sausage between paper towels to absorb as much fat as possible.
  2. Return sausage to pan over low heat and add in cream cheese and tomatoes. Break up cream cheese so it melts faster and stir until melted and combined. Let mixture cool to room temperature before making the crescents.
Pinwheels
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out crescent roll dough (I suggest doing this one can at a time) and pinch seams together to form a rectangle. Place cooled dip over ⅔ of the dough as pictured, roll dough over itself to form a log. Cut until eight even pieces.
  2. Place on baking sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes until golden brown. Serve and enjoy!

Yummy, yummy! There will probably be a little left over dip after making these, just serve it up with some tortilla chips and you’re good to go!

    Hi,
    Love the recipe so brilliant and simple!
    Is there a reason you use the Crescent rolls instead the dough sheet from Pillsbury? I would think it would be easier with the sheet because you don’t have the perforations, but crescents are soooooooo good.
    Also, how do you cut the pinwheels so nicely? Mine always squish.

    Thanks!

      When I made this recipe I didn’t know the sheets exsisted. But, now that I do I would definitely use them! I also used a serrated knife to cut them, I think that would help on the squish factor. 😉
