Cream Cheese Jalapeno Sausage Pinwheels

This recipe I'm sharing today is for
 Cream Cheese Jalapeno Sausage Pinwheels
and it's from
Aunt Nubby's Kitchen.

I made these at my daughter's house a few weeks ago and they were a big hit.  If you're looking for a new recipe and haven't tried this one yet and it sounds good to you, be sure and give it a try!

Cream Cheese Jalapeno Sausage Pinwheels from Aunt Nubby's Kitchen

1 pound pork sausage
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 package crescent roll dough
In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until browned, adding the jalapeno pepper to the sausage while it is cooking. Drain the grease from the sausage, then add the cream cheese. Stir over very low heat until the cream cheese is blended into the sausage. Spread the crescent roll dough out on a sheet of parchment paper, sealing the perforations and seams together so that the dough is in one rectangular sheet. Spread the sausage/cream cheese mixture over the crescent dough in a thin, even layer. Start rolling the dough up lengthwise, very carefully in one long roll. Refrigerate the roll for 20 - 30 minutes, or stick it in the freezer for a short while, this will make it easier to slice.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with aluminum foil and spraying with cooking spray. Slice the roll into sections about 1/2 inch thick, place the slices on the prepared pan. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until the crescent dough is browned.

Serve and enjoy!
