Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents
To make these scrumptious Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents, gather the following ingredients:
Pork Sausage 1/2 pound
Cream Cheese 4 ounces
Crescent Roll Dough 1 package (8 count)
Green Onions 2 stalks
Shredded Cheddar Cheese 1/2 cup
Salt and Pepper To taste
Olive Oil For cooking
Step 1: Cook the Sausage
In a skillet over medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil.
Add the pork sausage to the skillet and cook it, breaking it up into crumbles with a spatula.
Cook the sausage until it is browned and fully cooked, ensuring there are no pink spots.
Remove any excess fat from the skillet and set the cooked sausage aside.
Step 2: Prepare the Cream Cheese Mixture
In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese.
Mix the cheeses together until they are well blended and form a creamy mixture.
Season the cream cheese mixture with salt and pepper to your taste preferences.
Finely chop the green onions and add them to the cream cheese mixture, stirring to incorporate the flavors.
Step 3: Assemble the Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents
Preheat your oven according to the crescent roll package instructions.
Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate the triangles.
Spoon a generous dollop of the cream cheese mixture onto the wide end of each crescent roll triangle.
Top the cream cheese mixture with a spoonful of the cooked sausage.
Gently roll up each crescent, starting from the wide end and tucking in the sides to secure the filling.
Step 4: Bake to Perfection
Place the filled crescents on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake the Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents in the preheated oven, following the package instructions for the crescent roll dough, until they are golden brown and fully cooked.
Remove the crescents from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!
Arrange the warm Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents on a serving platter.
These crescents are best enjoyed fresh from the oven, while the cream cheese filling is still gooey and delightful.
Serve them as a savory breakfast or brunch option, or even as a delicious appetizer for your next gathering.
Watch as these delectable crescents disappear quickly, leaving everyone asking for the recipe!
