Loved these. So tasty and so easy. I will say that there was no way I was going to get the dough to roll out to 14x10. It was just getting too thin. I was a little short, but it still worked, and it tasted delicious.

I have used this recipe again and again. They are always a big hit. I add chives if I have them, but they are excellent without. Great for an Easter brunch! I ALWAYS double the recipe, and there are never any left!

I think it is really great, and even better if you add extra sage to the sausage.

This is in the permanent recipe file. Have made these routinely. Great for a quick bite of breakfast on the go, reheat for the next morning and have even added scrambled eggs for a different breakfast bite. Tried and true easy recipe. Used often for buffets and brunches. Really a no-brainer.

My family LOVES these pinwheels. I follow the recipe as written and they come out perfect all the time. A favorite and a request from family and friends. They are simple to make and so delicious. I make them often.

These are easy and always a hit. I do not use chives. This can be prepped the night before then sliced and baked in the morning.

Have made this recipe numerous times - very easy - and everyone loves them. Frankly, they are just as good without the chives. Have made them for everything from a wedding reception to church get-togethers. A recipe I come back to over and over.

Very tasty! I thought of adding cheese but decided not too & they were great. Funny thing was that many asked me if there was cheese in them!

Very good! My daughter who won't eat much meat at all loved these.
