Cocktail Sausage Wreath

Here is a very easy appetizer that kids can put together for you while you work on a different appetizer.  Show them how to do it once and you can tick one more thing off your to-do list. 
  • 1 can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (8 roll size)
  • 24 cocktail sausages 
  • 1 beaten egg
  • parsley and a bit of finely chopped red pepper for garnish
  • sriracha mayonnaise, mustard, and pickles 

Place the dough on the counter and pat together all the angled perforations. 

Cut the dough into 12 pieces.

Cut each of those pieces into a triangle. 

Roll each sausage into the dough, starting at the wide end.

Place the sausage rolls onto a greased pizza pan. 

Brush with beaten egg and place a few pieces of finely chopped red pepper on each piece.
Bake at 375 F about 20 minutes or until the sausage starts to sizzle.  

Garnish with finely chopped parsley and serve with pickles, grainy mustard, and sriracha mayonnaise. 


  1. I love everything about this post, Lovella! What a fun idea to get help with from the younger set in the family. Turns out beautifully, too.

  2. Love the dip suggestions.
    Sounds like a grand kitchen time with the grands. BTW...Pillsbury now sells their crescent roll dough without perforations too.
    And I’d like to try it with a puff pastry sheet sometime.

  3. Also thinking of having the little ones use a pizza cutting wheel to cut the triangles instead of using a knife...boy grands might be a bit more into sword play than granddaughters.

    1. Both of your ideas are excellent Jill. I don't know why I didn't think of the pizza cutter. I get them to use that for other things. I'd also like to try it with puff pastry. I haven't seen non perforated crescents in Canada... hopefully they are finding their way north.

  4. Well, isn't that lovely! 2 sous-chefs to help with the baking. And a scrumptious job they did too.

  5. Cute Lovella. I love watching the next generation helping in the kitchen. Sounds something that Ivy would enjoy doing.

  6. This is wonderful!!! Those sweet grands did such a great job. I'll bet it was delicious and fun to eat!

  7. I love this idea...I was actually thinking about making these little sausages too but hadn't thought about in a wreath! One of my favorite snacks!

  8. We just had these for our appetizer tonight and everyone loved them! Thanks Lovella!

  9. So cool! Saw it first at Ellen’s Instagram, then her blog, and now here. Man, I wish Inhad trained my grands right like you’ve trained yours. ☺️
