  • 1 package (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1/2 pound breakfast sausage
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)


Preparing the Filling:

  1. Cook the Sausage: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the breakfast sausage until it is browned and cooked through. Break it into crumbles as it cooks. Drain any excess grease.
  2. Mix the Filling: In a medium bowl, combine the cooked sausage, softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.

Assembling the Crescents:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Dough: Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate it into triangles.
  3. Fill the Crescents: Place a spoonful of the sausage and cheese mixture at the wide end of each crescent triangle. Roll up the dough, starting from the wide end and rolling towards the point.
  4. Bake: Place the filled crescents on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the crescents are golden brown and the filling is hot and bubbly.

Crescents filled with sausage cream cheese are a tasty and adaptable addition to any dinner or get-together. They are appealing because of their buttery, flaky shell and flavorful filling. Watch them disappear quickly when served warm and topped with fresh parsley for a splash of color. These crescents are going to be a big hit whether you’re throwing a party or just looking for a good snack. Have fun! 🥐🧀
