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.

Shaved Jalapeno

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.

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.

Easy Jalapeno Sausage Rolls made with only 5 ingredients! This sausage roll recipe packs a punch with fresh grated jalapeno, sausage links, cheese,  and pillowy crust.


  • 16 frozen yeast roll dough balls, thawed (or use homemade roll dough!)
  • 28 ounces kielbasa sausage links
  • 8 slices american cheese
  • 1 fresh jalapeno
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Flake salt *Optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut the kielbasa sausage into 16 equal pieces. Unwrap and cut the american cheese slices in half, creating 16 strips. Use a course grater to shave the jalapeno into fine pieces.
  2. Press one roll flat into a 4 1/2 inch circle. Sprinkle a scant amount of shaved jalapeno over the dough. Place a cheese strip over the jalapeños, then a sausage link on top.
  3. Fold the ends of the dough over the sausage link, covering the cheese completely, so it’s less likely to seep out. Press the seam to secure the dough. Then flip the roll over, placing it seam-side-down on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining ingredients creating 16 sausage rolls. Spread them out on the baking sheets.
  4. Brush each roll thoroughly with milk. If desired, sprinkle with flake or coarse salt. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden. Cool for 5 minutes, then serve warm.

NOTE: If using frozen dough balls, make sure to set them out a couple hours early to thaw. Spray a piece of plastic wrap with nonstick cooking spray and lay over the top to keep them from drying out.

    I have never seen sausage rolls like these, interesting. I make and grew up with the traditional British variety made with puff pastry and pork mince. Is this a typical kind from your area?
