Sausage rolls on Christmas morning are a Widdifield tradition. Well, I guess they are technically a Fisher tradition since the recipe belongs to Matt's Grandma Fisher (my mom-in-law's mom). Grandma Fisher was actually well known in her community in Tulsa, OK for her specialty. To make extra money, she would sell the rolls to local businessmen.
The recipe only requires two ingredients, but it is somewhat time consuming, so I suggest making them up the night before, covering them well and refrigerating them. That way you can just pull them out in the morning and pop them in the oven. Okay, here we go...
GRANDMA FISHER'S SAUSAGE ROLLS:
- 4 cans of Pillsbury biscuits
- 1 tube of Jimmy Dean sausage
- Rolling pin
- Wax paper
Cut off two pieces of wax paper. Lay one piece on a flat surface and place three rolls on top. (Note: You may have to replace wax paper once it gets too wet and the biscuits begin to stick too much.)
Place the second sheet of wax paper on top and roll out biscuits to a thin, oval shape.
Remove top layer of wax paper and smear a thin layer of uncooked sausage on each biscuit.
Roll up each biscuit.
Use a fork to seal edges by firmly pressing each end. Pierce the top of the rolls at least 4 times with the fork.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with ketchup for dipping.
