Creamy Sausage Crescents

Refrigerated crescent rolls are a ridiculously easy way to make a great snack food for football games, parties and potlucks. Most people are familiar with "pigs in a blanket", but these creamy sausage rolls are a little bit different - a buttery, flaky roll, filled with a creamy sausage filling.

Creamy Sausage Crescents

2 cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1 lb package breakfast sausage

Brown & crumble the sausage in a skillet over medium heat; drain and place in a medium mixing bowl.

Add the softened cream cheese and mix well to combine. 

Unroll the refrigerated crescent rolls and separate them into individual rolls. Place a heaping spoonful of the sausage mixture on the widest end of the roll. Roll the crescent roll towards the narrow end (the triangle point). 

I am NOT good at rolling crescents.

Place the rolls on a baking sheet. 

You will need 2 baking sheets, or you can just bake the rolls in batches. 

Bake rolls in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until browned. 

This is only about 1/2 of the total yield. 

Enjoy! These freeze well and reheat nicely, too. 


  1. That sounds awesome! I make a sausage, cream cheese, and rotel dip, but never have I thought to do something like this. Thanks!!

  2. Thanks, Katie! These really are easy, and I'm sure your boys would love them!
