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.
