I love bread. There, I’ve said it. That being said whenever there is a celebration some kind of bread sneaks into the menu. Now for the Super Bowl I could come up with a long list of bread related food. Carbs and football go together.
When I picked up this package of Lil’ Smokies I wasn’t quite sure what to do with them. I have a bar-b-que sauce that they can simmer in and be eaten alone. Boring. Then I came to the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls in the can. You know, the kind you unroll and make all kinds of wonderful sweet and savory food items with? I can’t remember the last time I baked them as they were originally intended.
This meets most of the requirements for good food. One is bread; two is savory sausage, and three is salty sweet bar-b-que sauce.
I still wanted a little bar-b-que sauce too. What to do? I unrolled the crescents and cut the little sausages in half. Next I spread my favorite bar-b-que sauce (from Rudy’s) on the piece of dough. I used a pizza cutter to cut each crescent into thirds (long narrow strips) from wide end to point and rolled a piece of sausage in each third. I began at the wide end and rolled to the point. Placed them(point down) on a lightly greased baking sheet and baked them for 15 minutes at 350°.
The sauce sort of gets all over the dough and your fingers as you roll. I sprinkled a little freshly ground black pepper over them before I baked them. I will serve them with a little sauce to dip them in just in case it is needed.
What are you fixin’ for the Super Bowl? Do you care who wins? Or is the food most important? Come share your stuff at my party.
