Savory Sausage Breakfast Rolls-easy to make and a great change up from the usual sweet roll.
Holidays at my house are all about family. Thanksgiving, Christmas. Spending time together, enjoying each other’s company. The kids forced to stay in the same room with everyone for more than 10 minutes. In fact, we pretty much torture them and make them visit for hours.
It’s also about the food. People gather around food naturally. at the table, in the kitchen. The warm comfort of hot out of the oven deliciousness.
Holiday food isn’t just about the big meal, which at our house isn’t until around 4 o’clock in the afternoon. No, from the moment we wake up until bedtime, we’re grazing. A nibble here, a bite there.
Breakfast sets the mood for the day. Put something good in their bellies at the beginning of the day and my kids will stay smiling (mostly) for the rest of the day.
As the chief cook and bottle, glass, plate and pan washer, I want Breakfast to be easy.
We always do the traditional Sausage, egg, hash brown casserole. I mean always, like for the past 15 years at least. I love it, but I’m tired of it. And let’s be honest. There’s always leftover that you have to figure out a way to save in your already over packed fridge.
Time for a change.
My family devoured these rolls. I will tell you the girls preferred them without the onions and bell peppers so if you’ve got picky eaters in your house, feel free to leave them out.
Don’t wait for a special occasion to make these, just turn any morning into that special breakfast!
