Spicy Sausage Pinwheels & Holiday Entertaining with Petit Jean Meats

Spicy Sausage Pinwheels are a great snack or a tasty appetizer for holiday entertaining.  

Spicy Sausage Pinwheels from Miss in the Kitchen

Summer Sausage is a must have for all of our holiday and family gatherings.  We always have a big platter with meats and cheeses and usually a few veggies to go along side the meal.  It is also a very popular gift item for the holidays.  I mean what guy doesn’t love summer sausage?

Our family was more than a little excited to try the Mossy Oak (from Petit Jean Meats) Branded Summer Sausage and Jalapeño & Cheese Deer Summer Sausage plus Hickory Smoked Bacon and EZ Carve Sliced Hams.  You know if it is from Petit Jean, it is top quality and the flavor is over the top fantastic.

I usually save the spicy stuff for the guys, but the Jalapeno & Cheese Deer Summer Sausage was right up my alley.  I was so taken with it that I had to do some experimenting beyond the meat and cheese tray.

These Spicy Sausage Pinwheels would be such a great appetizer for holiday parties.  They are so easy to put together, 3 ingredients and a little marinara and you are all set.  Plus they bake in just fifteen minutes.  EASY!
