Day after Thanksgiving Sausage Recipes

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Johnsonville Naturals

How motivated are you the day after the big dinner? Chances are you don’t want to cook a full course meal until next year and that fridge is full of leftovers so what to do with those? For many you may be housing guests still and you need to be prepared on meals for the day after! How about using up that stuffing and cranberry sauce for breakfast and making some not-so-boring sausage dogs for lunch with leftover cheeses and veggies? What if you could do all of that with all natural sausage? Johnsonville has your day after meals taken care of with the new Naturals Sausage products. I found mine at my local Safeway.
Sausage Stuffing Breakfast Biscuits

These are as easy as they look!
  • 1 package of Johnsonville Naturals Maple or Original sausage links
  • 2 packages of crescent rolls dough
  • Leftover stuffing
  • Leftover Cranberry sauce (optional)
  • 1 Egg
Cook sausage according to package directions. Separate the crescent dough into their triangles. Drop a spoonful of stuffing on largest end of dough, top with cooked sausage and roll. Do this until all sausage is gone-makes 14 crescents. Brush tops of rolled crescents with stirred egg. Bake 375 degrees 11-12 minutes. Add some cranberry sauce for dipping (optional)
My son and husband could not get enough of these and they heat up well if you have extra.

Sausage Dogs with Leftovers

The directions are as you choose! Cook sausage according to package directions. Top rolls with cooked sausage, veggies and cheese and stick under the broiler for 1-2 minutes. Top with your favorite sauces or toppings. On the side can be more leftovers!

Hint: Once the sausage begins browning, I slice in half lengthwise. It allows for the center to cook well and makes it easier to lay on rolls.
Hopefully that gives you some ideas for the day after! Just make sure you pick up your Johnsonville Naturals while you shop for the Thanksgiving Day ingredients so you are prepared. Learn more including where to find a retailer near you that offers these all natural sausage varieties at
