Sweet Sausage Rolls Recipe

Refrigerated dough makes these appetizers a snap to make, sausage gives them a smoky heat, and honey and brown sugar give them a touch of sweetness. Add it all up, and you have a finger food that's downright addicting! —Lori Cabuno, Canfield, Ohio

"Didn't fit in a 11x7-inch pan as directed in the recipe. Had to use 2 pans. Would use a 9x13-inch pan next time around."

"A favorite appetizer and everyone always loves! Good with both pecans or walnuts. Can get ready in advance by making wiener wraps, place on separate plate and refrigerate then place on butter/nut mixture just before baking."

"I have made this recipe numerous times, and it always gets raves and request for the recipe. I use white Karo syrup instead of the honey. I always double the recipe, but I don't double the melted butter. I use about 3/4 cup when I double it."

"I made these as a party snack as a change from the standard crescent roll recipe. They were very good, but we had leftovers. That's when we made the discovery these are EXCELLENT breakfast food! Like little pancakes and sausage. You can make these the night before for a quick tasty breakfast. Yummy."

"I've made these several times, and everyone loves them! To some folks, the combination of ingredients seems strange--- until they taste them. The rolls really are "addicting"! Do try them---they are a great "sweet and savory" appetizer or snack."

"This recipe is always a hit at pot lucks and parties. A whole package of lil smokies takes 2 rolls of crescent rolls. I make them in 1 pan, but don't quite double the glaze. If you melt the butter in the pan first, then add the sugar and honey, mix well, then add the nuts and mix again, you can put the lil sausage rolls on the top and refrigerate the whole thing. Just remember to add cooking time, since you are starting with a cold pan. This is one of my most requested recipes."
