Sausage Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

I have to tell you about these Sausage Rolls.  I’ve made these for several different occasions and also freeze them for quick snacks they are deeeelicious!!  I originally got the recipe from a friend in MOPS.  Sara made these for one of our meetings and I begged her for the recipe.  The kiddos adore them, and they’re super easy to make.  For an even MORE frugal savings, you can make your own Pillsbury Cresen Rolls that are super yum!


1lb. Jimmy Dean Sausage.

1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese

2 cans Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1 Table spoon poppy seeds

Brown sausage like hamburger meat (drain).  While preparing sausage, soften cream cheese in microwave for 15 seconds.  In a large bowl, combine cooked sausage with softened cream cheese.  Note:  The hot sausage helps the cheese melt a bit, and lets you mix it until it’s all nice and creamy.

unroll 1 can of dough and place on baking sheet. Spoon cooked sausage and cream cheese in the middle of the larger section of the crescent roll.

Fold over the long sides of the pastry to cover the sausage.  Sprinkle with poppy seeds(we call them sprinkles) and bake at 350 or 20 minutes until golden brown.  I’ve also seen them rolled and cut up and served too.

You can convince your kiddos to go anywhere with the promise of this yummy treat.  Enjoy!
