Sausage Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread is a sweet and savory tasty treat for breakfast or snack.

Monkey Bread, or Pull Apart Bread, is just one of those fun foods to eat! There’s just something about getting your fingers in there and plucking off delicious bites. I realize this is a little different with sausage and cinnamon roll, but a slightly sweet/savory dish can be good at times, right? Do you like to eat monkey bread? How often do you make monkey bread?

You only need three ingredients and less than thirty minutes to make this Sausage Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread. Because it may be a little confusing, I took pictures of the process for you.

You will need to halve the cinnamon roll biscuit. The above picture is one that I’ve already cut. The reason I cut them is because they were too big if I left them whole to roll out. The sausage to bread ratio would have been too much bread. I wanted bite sized pieces with equal amounts of sausage and bread.

If using two cans of cinnamon rolls, you’ll have 32 bread rounds after halving. You’ll need 32 Lil’ Smoky sausages as well. After you halve the cinnamon biscuits, roll them flat with a rolling-pin as pictured above.  Just eyeball it and roll them large enough that the biscuit will wrap around the sausage. You’ll need to use a little flour on your work surface to keep the dough from sticking.

I rolled them up almost like wrapping burritos; roll, wrap, tuck the ends inside and pinch closed. There is really no right or wrong way to wrap the sausages so do what you like best. Next, simply roll the bundles in sugar.

Spray a bundt pan with non-stick vegetable spray. Then, you just need to layer the sausage cinnamon roll bundles in the pan.

I used the frosting that came in the cinnamon roll can and drizzled it over the monkey bread. This is purely your choice. If you like things a little on the sweet side, you may want to as well. If you prefer it more on the savory side, save these icing containers in the fridge for another use.

My husband thought this was an ‘odd’ combination when I first told him what I’d made. After tasting, I won him over. Do you like Lil’ Smokies? I do. This was similar to Pigs in a Blanket, but the cinnamon roll gave a warm, slightly sweet flavor and contrasted well with the smokie sausage.

This would be a great little dish to take tailgating.

    This is such an intriguing combination I might have to try it. I love cinnamon rolls (those ones in particular) and Lil’ Smokies so not sure why I wouldn’t love the two together. Thanks for sharing on the weekend re-Treat link party.

      It was a random thought, but loved how it turned out. My youngest thought it was SO clever and cool that he could have breakfast and dessert at the same time 🙂 Aren’t kids great?!
