Crescent Sausage Rolls

"This is my version of a recipe that was printed in recent magazine. I couldn't get that recipe to work for me; however, with a little patience this was the end result. The sausage I used was a pork and turkey sausage blend."

    These were very good, they reminded me of those HOT POCKETS (even tho I don't buy them). I think one could make these substituting other meats and other flavors of cheese for the pork sausage. I bet one could also make these with scrambled eggs, cheese, and cooked meat, and have them for breakfast. When I made these, I used already seasoned pork sausage, (which our family makes) and since our seasoned pork sausage already has garlic, onion, sage, salt & pepper in it, I didn't add the basil or chives. I did add a bit more cheese, (about 3/4 cup) and used 1/2 cup of extra sharp white cheddar, and 1/4 cup sharp cheddar. Next time I may add 1 cup of the cheese. My husband says no matter how much cheese you add, you still can't see or taste it in the sausage rolls. I found these were done baking within 13 minutes, but to be sure they weren't doughy, I turned off my oven, then placed them on the upper rack, and let them sit in the oven for 2 more minutes. After I removed them from the oven, I let them sit for 5 minutes before we ate them. The next time I make these, I'm going to add a few red pepper flakes, but I'll add it when I stir in the cheese. I'm sure my hubby will like them even more made that way. By the way, I found these made 2 servings, rather than 4 servings (2 per each person). One more thing I wanted to add...when I rolled up the crescents, I rolled them up from the short end, (like one would do when making a jelly roll) as the other way did not work too well for me. Thank you Paula for sharing this recipe, as they were very good!

    These are very good and simple to make. I used hot sausage, but everything else was the same! This makes a great snack for my family. Thanks for sharing.

    We loved these. Perfect flavors and so easy to put together. I used a hot brand of sausage for a little extra zip. I think you could alter the herbs in this to fit anyones fancy. I left out the optional sesame seeds and used a 10 oz can of crescent rolls and had extra meat left over. Thanks Paula for another keeper.

    Dh and I loved these! Simple, comforting flavors! I did use only 1/4 tsp of basil for our personal tastes, but otherwise prepared as directed. The good thing about these was that they were just as good at room temperature. DH and I enjoyed these for brunch today and will certainly do again! Thanks PaulaG!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
