- Freeze brie for 12 minutes for easier slicing
- Freeze logs for 5-10 minutes before slicing
- Add more flour to the surface if the dough is sticking
- Suggestion: Substitute pre-made crescent dough for one sheet of puff pastry
- Pinwheels can be made up to 3 days ahead of time, covered in the fridge or freeze if you plan to use at a later date
- If you are air-frying/baking from frozen, add 2 more minutes to cook time. Freeze up to two months once cooked
- 1 package (300 grams) Grimm’s Breakfast Sausage
- 1 can (8 oz) premade crescent dough
- 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
- medium size wheel of brie (200-300 grams)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp water
- 1/2 tbsp roughly chopped fresh rosemary
- Remove Grimm’s Breakfast Sausage from casing. Slide them right out into your skillet.
- In a medium skillet, brown the Breakfast Sausage for 4 minutes. Mix in chopped rosemary. It will be slightly undercooked and perfectly finished off in the air fryer. Set aside to let cool.
- Unroll crescent dough on a lightly floured surface. Cut sheet into two rectangles and pinch together along perforated lines in the premade dough. This makes it easier to roll.
- Beat egg with one tbsp of water. Brush the pastry with the egg wash.
- Spread two heaping tbsp of cranberry sauce over each rectangle.
- Add a layer of the Breakfast Sausage over the cranberry sauce.
- Place sliced pieces of brie over the top, evenly.
- Slowly roll the filled dough like a log.
- Slice each log into 10-11 pinwheels.
- Cook in Air Fryer at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from Air Fryer. Air fry in two batches. Alternatively, you can cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
