Sausage Pepper and Onion Breakfast Rolls


Sausage, onion and peppers wrapped up in a warm flaky crescent roll will be a great hit for breakfast or brunch.  

My kids are home for spring break, so I decided to wake them up with the aroma of sausage and peppers cooking up this morning.  They love pigs in blankets so I thought why not make something similar with breakfast sausage. 

These tasty roll ups were a hit for breakfast this morning.  I fried an egg so they would have a yummy yolk to dip into as well.  Spicy, savory and easy to make and eat is my kind of breakfast for sure. 

I used a variety of sweet peppers, but my kids and I love spicy flavors too so I threw in a large jalapeno with the seeds to give this a real spicy kick.

I am not a big fan of breakfast foods, but I really loved these and had to force myself from eating too many of these breakfast rolls.  Spring break is off to a good start. 


Sausage Pepper and Onion Breakfast Rolls
Recipe by Ramona from Kitchen Simmer

1 package breakfast sausage links
1 large onion sliced
1 cup peppers (variety) sliced
salt and black pepper
2 tubes crescent rolls  
American cheese slices as needed
Eggs as needed

1.  Brown the sausage 1/2 way in a large skillet.  Then add the sliced onions and peppers** with a little salt and black pepper to season onions and peppers.  Cook until sausage is cooked through and peppers and onions have wilted.

** The peppers you use are your choice.  I used a variety of red and orange mild sweet peppers and one spicy jalapeno pepper.

2.  Open crescent roll tube.  Lay one crescent roll out and place a small slice of cheese.  I took one slice of American cheese and portion it out into 1/3 pieces.  Next place one sausage link and some of the peppers and onions.  Finally roll up each on into a crescent shape.  Place on a baking sheet and bake according to crescent roll instructions on tube (about 10-15 minutes in a 375 degree oven).  

3.  Optional:  Fry a egg sunny side up or over easy to make a great dipper for your roll. Enjoy.
