Moms aren’t the only ones who love breakfast in bed. This Father’s Day, spoil Dad with some easy Sausage Bacon Pesto Rolls. He’ll wake with a smile when the kids bring in a tray of these freshly baked gems, along with a steaming cup of coffee and the morning paper.
You’ll need a package of crescent biscuit dough (preferably the kind without perforations), a jar of pesto, cooked bacon bits, cooked crumbled sausage and grated cheddar cheese. If dad loves spicy foods, you can also add cooked chorizo or some sliced jalapenos.
Unroll the dough and make a rectangle (one rectangle for the smaller eight-ounce package of dough, two for the larger 12-ounce size). If you’re using the perforated dough, just kind of smush the perforations away to make it one piece of dough.
Generously spread the dough with pesto, then sprinkle with the sausage, bacon and cheese (and optional chorizo). Starting with one of the longest sides of the rectangle, roll into a log. Cut into fat, two-inch pinwheel slices and lay each one flat side down into a muffin tin. Don’t worry if they seem to fall apart a little; they will bake into scrumptious rolls! You’ll end up with six to eight rolls with the small package of dough and 12 rolls with the larger package. Top with a pinch more shredded cheese and optional jalapenos and bake 12 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden brown.
Hopefully you’ll have leftovers, because these rolls are fabulous tucked into a lunchbox. Our family also likes to bring them camping because you can wrap them in foil and warm them up a bit on the campfire.
