  • 2 cups White Lily Self Rising Flour
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 Tbsp cold butter flavored vegetable shortening OR 5 Tbsp cold butter
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter melted and divided
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 lb breakfast sausage cooked and crumbled
  • 2 medium green onions minced
  • 2 cup shredded colby-jack cheese


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat cook sausage and green onion together until no pink remains. Drain excess fat, and set aside to cool.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, use a whisk to sift together White Lily Self-Rising Flour with 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese. Using a pastry blender, cut shortening into the flour with until it resembles cornmeal. Add the buttermilk, mixing with a fork just until a soft dough forms.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured non stick surface and knead gently 3-4 times coating with flour. Flour a rolling pin and roll into a 10 x 14-inch rectangle.
  • Mix together 2 Tbsp melted butter and 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard. Brush over the surface of the dough from end to end.
  • Sprinkle dough with 1 cup of shredded cheese, then arrange sausage crumbles over cheese. Top sausage with remaining cheese.
  • Roll jelly roll style starting with the longest edge shaping as you go, ending seam side down. Use a sharp knife to cut into ¾-inch pinwheels.
  • Place pinwheels onto a parchment lined baking sheet and brush the tops with remaining 1 Tbsp melted butter.
  • Bake at 425°F for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately.
