“Great with soup, as a snack or as a meal on the run. These store well in the freezer if you make them in advance.”

Original recipe yields 20 pinwheels



  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two baking sheets.
  2. Beat the egg in a bowl until smooth. Add the ground beef, cayenne pepper, crushed cereal, onion, salt, black pepper, and parsley. Mix until evenly combined; set aside. Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a separate bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender until no lumps of shortening remain and the mixture takes on a sandy appearance. Stir in the milk until a dough forms.
  3. Roll the dough out to a 10x15-inch rectangle on a well-floured surface. Spread the meat mixture evenly over the entire surface of the dough. Roll the dough into a cylinder from one of the wide ends to form a 15-inch long log. Cut the log into 3/4-inch slices and place on to the prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until dark golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes. Serve hot.

Very good...but salty. Will definitely make again but will eliminate the salt and will increase the cayenne pepper - then hopefully it will be 4 or even 5 stars. Also I used Pillsbury crescent rolls instead of making the dough - I rolled it out, smoothed over the crescent lines then put the meat on and rolled up. I baked following the temp and time on the rolls.
