Sweet Sausage Crescent Rolls

Sweet Sausage Rolls were a recipe I originally made something like 5-10 years ago and just never got around to taking pictures. Better late than never, right?

It is a very rich, comforting sort of breakfast dish. It definitely leans to the sweet side of sweet and savory. The crescent rolls stay pretty soft even after baking and soak up a bunch of the sweet, buttery sauce.

The recipe doesn’t specify which type of nuts to use, so go with whatever is your preference and affordable for you. I used walnuts but pecans would also be great. Enjoy!

Sweet Sausage Rolls
Makes 2 dozen


  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 24 miniature smoked sausage links
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar


  1. Unroll crescent dough and separate into triangles; cut each lengthwise into three triangles. Place sausages on wide end of triangles; roll up tightly.
  2. Lightly spray a 9×13-inch baking dish. Combine the melted butter, nuts, honey and brown sugar in the baking dish. Arrange sausage rolls, seam side down, in butter mixture. 
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

  1. These sound so good, but I feel like I shouldn't make it for the two of us because eating the whole pan would be bad? Guess we need to invited some friends for breakfast!
