Sausage Rolls with Arugula - A fun and easy crescent roll recipe!

Do you like to have pseudo party food for dinner sometimes? I really do, as often as possible actually. That’s why I have dinner recipes like Veggie Loaded Nachos and Hearty Hot Spinach Dip because they eat like a meal but make me feel like I’m doing something more fun than eating dinner at home (again). Sticking with that theme, today I’m bringing you these easy, fun, and scrumptious sausage rolls. You only need four ingredients to whip these babies up, and they are perfectly suited for party food or dinner! I had leftover garlic and herb Rondelé cheese from the Gnocchi in Tomato Cream Sauce I made a couple weeks ago, and this turned out to be a really tasty way to use it. The only thing I would change about this recipe next time is to slice the sausage into bites instead of using the large piece because it was a little challenging to bite without pulling the entire sausage out of the middle. Otherwise, these sausage rolls will be a regular guest at our house!

This sounds great it’s like a fancy pig in a blanket. I have some home made crescent rolls in my freezer that I have to try with this recipe. It looks wonderful. Pinning

I am all about fancy around here (just as long as it doesn’t require much effort on my part). ;) Now homemade crescent rolls do sound fancy! I bet yours are amazing. Thanks so much for the pin!

I think these look absolutely wonderful. I just made some “pigs in the blanket” with Little Smokies and a sriracha sauce, so now I’m all hopped up on finding more unique recipes. Voila! Thanks for this one. Pinned.
