Cheesy Sausage Rolls

Sometimes you want something quick, snack-ish, yet still healthy. Let's say you're going to hang with your hubby watching a game, or you have kids who are roaringly hungry and need to eat right now! You need to make something simple, but good.

That was the situation I imagined for myself when challenged to use Bilinski's Kale Balsamic Chicken Sausage. This fully-cooked sausage needs only a quick dash through a hot oven to be ready to serve. I combined it with a quick variation on cheese biscuits, and ta-da! Simple, healthy, quick and satisfying.

Will make 5 perfect little rolls

1 12-ounce package Bilinski's Kale Balsamic Chicken Sausage

Ultra-quick cheese biscuit dough:
1 cup (4 ounces) self-rising flour, plus a bit more for rolling out the biscuit dough
1/2 cup grated cheese (I used Gruyere)
1/2 cup heavy or whipping cream
NOTE: You could flavor the biscuits just about any way you wish! Omit the cheese, add herbs, have fun.

Preheat the oven to 400°F - by the time the sausage rolls are ready to bake, the oven should be ready. Place a rack in the upper one-third of the oven.

Put the self-rising flour and the grated cheese in a bowl, and toss it to coat the cheese bits with the flour. Mix in the cream until a shaggy dough forms. If it's too dry, add in a bit more cream or milk; the humidity can affect how biscuit dough comes together. You should be able to squeeze the dough into a cohesive ball without it being sticky or oozy.

On a floured board, pat or roll the dough 3/4 of an inch thick and cut the dough into strips.

Wrap each sausage with strips of dough in a spiral. Place the dough-wrapped sausages on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake in the top third of the oven about 15 minutes, until the biscuits are golden and the sausages are hot.
