- Sausage- cooked and crumbled, breakfast sausage works best in this dish.

- Cheddar cheese- I used sharp cheddar in this recipe for a bolder flavor, but any shredded cheese works.
- Crescent rolls- refrigerated crescent rolls are perfect!
How To Make Sausage Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls
Step 1: Prepare the sausage. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). If you haven't done so already, cook the sausage, breaking it apart as it cooks, until it's browned on all sides.
Step 2: Mix the filling. Add the cooked sausage to a large bowl with the softened cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese. Give everything a good stir to combine.
Step 3: Prepare the crescent rolls. Separate the crescent rolls into triangles. Cut each triangle in half lengthwise. Then, scoop a heaping tablespoon of the filling onto each strip of the crescent dough and roll them up!
Step 4: Bake. Place the sausage crescent rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm and enjoy!
Pro Tips To Make The Best Recipe
- Cook the sausage the day before to save prep time.
- I definitely recommend breakfast sausage in this dish. Bonus points if it's maple-flavored!
- Use full fat cream cheese to get a delicious rich and creamy filling.
- If you melt a little butter and brush it onto the tops of the crescent rolls before baking, you'll end up with a delicious golden brown crust.
Storage and Reheating Instructions
In the fridge: You can store any leftover sausage crescent rolls in the fridge for up to 3 days. Simply let the rolls cool completely and store them in an airtight container or sealed bag.
In the freezer: You can store leftovers in the freezer as well. Again, let the crescent sausage rolls cool completely before wrapping them in plastic wrap and storing them in a freezer bag or airtight container for about 3 months.
Reheating: The best way to reheat any leftovers is to put them on a baking sheet in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes.
