Cheesy Sausage Biscuit Pinwheels Recipe

While there are many brands of all purpose and self rising flour I find myself reaching for White Lily over and over again. I’ve been privileged to visit the test kitchen and develop several recipes using their products and it is with great joy each and every time they asked me to do so. These biscuit pinwheels are an example of one such recipe and I’ve served them as expected for breakfast and brunch but, people love these as an appetizer.  The beauty of making the biscuit dough from scratch is, you may already have everything you need on hand.

How to Make the BEST Cheesy Sausage Biscuit Pinwheels Recipe

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Cheesy Sausage Pinwheels: Self rising flour, grated Parmesan cheese, melted butter, cooked breakfast sausage, shredded colby jack cheese, Dijon mustard, green onions and buttermilk.
  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: Large bowl, medium bowl, whisk, pastry mat, measuring cups and spoons, skillet, spoon, sharp knife and cutting board, cheese grater, sheet pans.
  • You can use mild or spicy sausage for the filling, the choice is completely up to you.
  • For an added layer of flavor, I like to brush the homemade biscuit dough with melted butter and Dijon mustard. It’s a simple touch that gives the flavor of the pinwheels a little extra something special.
  • For a time saver, you can fully assemble one day in advance. When doing so, wrap in plastic wrap and chill then slice into pinwheels just before baking.
  • It’s important  to use a sharp knife to slice into pinwheels. If you assemble in advance I recommend that you wait and brush with butter, just before baking.
  • Store baked Cheesy Sausage Biscuit Pinwheels in an airtight container chilled in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat gently in the microwave or an air fryer.
