Cream Cheese Sausage Crescent Roll

I’ve enjoyed making this cream cheese sausage crescent roll for a long time and thought it would be fun to document the process. My Mom made this for me when I  a child and I’ve been hooked ever since. This flaky, cheesy, porky, amazing breakfast roll has brought a lot of smiles, full stomachs and probably some high cholesterol to my family over the years. The best part, besides the flavor, is that it’s really easy to make.

Only 4 ingredients are needed:

  • 1 can Crescent rolls
  • 1 package Cream Cheese
  • 1 lb. breakfast sausage
  • egg white

1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage until it’s no longer pink.2

 

Melt the cream cheese in a microwavable bowl for 20-30 seconds or until soft.3

 

Add sausage to the cream cheese and mix together.4

 

Generously butter a sheet pan.6

 

Lay crescent rolls out on the buttered pan.7

 

Crimp the seams together to make one large crescent roll.8

 

Place the cream cheese/sausage mixture in the center of the roll. 9

 

Carefully pull up corners of the crescent roll over the mixture, crimping it shut. 10

 

Brush egg white over the entire crescent roll. This will give it a nice shine when it’s baked.11

 

Bake at 350° for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.12

 

ENJOY!13
