Lt. Dan and I bought our first house in 2000. It was a cute 1920’s bungalow in a trendy part of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Among other welcoming attributes of the neighborhood, there was a historic bakery several blocks away that we would walk to on Saturday mornings… Always justifying that we would burn off the naughtiness we consumed by walking to and from the bakery.
This particular bakery was an old-school establishment with a long glass counter holding uncountable pastries, doughnuts, cookies, cakes and pies. Yet the treat I looked forward to the most each Saturday morning was a savory breakfast item, fresh-made sausage rolls.
These juicy sausage links, wrapped it yeasty dough and cheese were the perfect reward after a Saturday morning stroll. I always relished every last bite and was continually tempted to order another one.
Since then, we have moved across the country to North Carolina, so it’s been years since I’ve tasted those particular sausage rolls.
However, through trial and error, I have found an easy way to replicate them at home. This Easy Jalapeno Sausage Rolls recipe brings a knowing smile to Dan’s face every time I make them.
Easy Jalapeno Sausage Rolls are ridiculously easy to make at home and offer the same satisfying bite of savory goodness as I remember from my newlywed days.
You can make yeast roll dough from scratch, or you can buy frozen yeast roll dough balls to speed up the process. Just make sure not to buy the partially baked frozen rolls.
Once the dough has thawed, press each dough ball flat and sprinkle fresh shaved jalapeno over the top. This gives the Easy Jalapeno Sausage Rolls a spicy bite that is much more fresh and appealing than using sausage links or cheese that already have jalapeno peppers in them.
Place half a piece of sliced American cheese over the flattened dough. American cheese is the best choice here, because of it’s texture and melting qualities.
Place a piece of kielbasa on top of the cheese, then fold the ends of the dough over the sausage, fully covering the sausage and cheese, to prevent leakage.
Brush the Easy Jalapeno Sausage Rolls with milk to help the dough brown, and pop them in the oven.
Soft tender yeasty bread wrapped around succulent sausage, with rich molten cheese, and a fresh bite of jalapeno in every mouthful. Heaven… These little guys are pure heaven!
Plus they are small, so you can enjoy two or three at a time!
You can add as much or as little shaved jalapeno as you like. I like to spice mine up, then serve them with a cold glass of milk to help cool off the heat.
Serving Easy Jalapeno Sausage Rolls with a tall cold glass of milk not only neutralizes the spice, it’s a great way to get in some extra protein first thing in the morning!
