These are so good! Watch the time, the first batch got too dark. Using parchment paper helped with sticking to the pan. I added a light amount of shredded sharp cheese on top before rolling up. I used two cans of rolls in two different brands and could tell a difference. Next time I will opt for the higher quality brand of crescent rolls only.

I make these every Christmas and they don't last long. I spread mustard onto the crescent rolls, then the sausage and sprinkle with cheddar cheese before rolling up.

I made these up and stored them in plasticware for a recent camping trip breakfast addition. Everyone loved them! They were hard to stop eating and this was even being served at room temperature. I used two cans of cheap crescent roll dough (next time I WILL spring for the .40 cent more stuff) and 1 lb of medium bulk sausage split over the two dough rolls. Savory! I can even see this being served as an appetizer maybe with some ro-tel cheese dip as a side! (sinful!) or some chives and sr cream dollop on top!
