Cheesy Sausage Crescent Roll

Total Time

This is a recipe I got from my sister who said that EVERY time she had taken it somewhere, it disappeared quickly, people raved and wanted the recipe--and I found it to be the case as well. It's a winner in my book!

i had this a few weeks ago at our weekly idea of a "supper club" .. it was a pancake dinner, that night, with this on the side. WOW. i'll tell you what. there were (only) four of us, and this produced NO leftovers. i believe the sausage used in ours was local (neese's sausage), but otherwise, to the tee. it was DELICIOUS. i'd been searching the site for the recipe, and i'm glad i've found it!

Just a quick change to my last review. It was a huge hit. I made four of these rolls for a large group and none were left. But, yes, next time I will add more filling. Too me it was a little sparse. But, obviously not enough to keep every piece from being consumed.

These were a big hit with our Florida vacation group. I wasn't able to use egg or poppy seeds (didn't have them). They browned up nicely and everyone loved them. They couldn't believe they were just cream chesse and sausage. I used RB Rices mild sauage with great results. I will be making these again this weekend for a birthday party. I cooked the sausage in advance, then it is really quick to take somewhere to put it together. Thanks for such a delicious, quick appetizer.
