  • 1 package (13 oz.) Hillshire Farm® Lit'l Smokies® Smoked Sausage
  • 1⁄2 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 can (8 oz.) crescent rolls, refrigerated
  • Roasted bell pepper strips (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Open package of Lit’l Smokies® and drain off any liquid.
  • Combine cranberry sauce and barbecue sauce in a small saucepan; heat over low heat stirring until smooth and hot.
  • Unroll dough, separate at perforations, creating 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal. With a knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 8 strips making a total of 32 strips. Wrap one strip of dough around each Lit’l Smokie®. Place crescent wrapped sausages with sides touching on ungreased cookie sheet or round baking stone in a circle forming a wreath shape.
  • Bake for 11-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly. Carefully place onto serving platter, if desired. Garnish wreath with bell pepper strips to form a bow and cherry tomato halves and rosemary sprigs for ornaments, if desired. Serve with cranberry-barbecue sauce mixture.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.
