Cheese Pinwheels

1 pkg. Pillsbury or other crescent roll dough
8 oz. pkg Cream cheese

1 lb. Sweet sausage, or 1 pepperoni sausage cut in very small pieces

Saute sausage until browned, or pepperoni until heated through. Drain fat, and add cream cheese. Stir until cheese is combined with meat. Set aside. Open crescent roll dough and divide in half. Unroll the dough and press the perforations together. Roll out entire section until perforations disappear and a solid rectangle is formed. Spread 1/2 of cheese and meat mixture on rolled dough, and roll up jelly roll fashion. Repeat with other half of the dough. Wrap each roll in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour. Slice rolls into even pieces approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. Arrange on oiled baking sheet and bake at temperature indicated on dough package until browned. Serve warm.
