This recipe of Sausage Pumpkin Pinwheels Appetizers is excellent for a party. I would make these appetizers any time I am in the mood for a snack.

Just give me some puff pastry, and I can make a million things out of it. I love it. It is very versatile, and you can make sweet or savory things with no problems.

These pinwheels are made with pumpkin puree, cooked sausage, green onions, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Yes, that easy.

I made them for the Friday night dinner after Thanksgiving, then served and watched them disappearing from the plate. “Delicious!” said everyone!

It makes a great appetizer in the fall when the pumpkin is in season, but if you are in the mood for these delicious little pastries, a can of pumpkin puree that you can find all year round in the grocery store will solve the problem.

Recipe looks delicious and easy. I making this morning for a party. I see it includes Pumpkin but nowhere in the instructions say where to add it....I will figure it is best to mix with cooked sausage prior to including on pastry. Just wanted you to know the pumpkin appears to be missing from instructions.

I am so sorry for this and really grateful for letting me know! I corrected the recipe. So, before you add the cooked sausage and the rest of the ingredients, spread 3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree on each puff pastry sheet. Then continue with the recipe. I hope you read it on time, before you start working on them. I am so sorry again for the missing ingredient. Thanks for letting me know!
