This easy 3-ingredient appetizer is perfect for parties and gatherings, and it’s packed with flavor! Everyone will love these Sausage Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls.
Getting ready for a party is a lot of work, so if I can make an appetizer that is basically effortless, I absolutely will! This recipe requires only 3 ingredients, just like our Bacon Rolled Smoked and Grape Jelly Meatballs.
3 ingredients – so easy!
Appetizers are the best! ! There’s nothing better than going to a party or gathering and enjoying some delicious bite-sized snacks. That’s why we’re always looking for new appetizers to try.
We recently discovered these crescent sausage bites and thought we might give them a try! We did a good thing because these were so delicious. I couldn’t help but shove these into my mouth.
What we love most is how easy these work. It took them a few minutes to piece together and just needed a few ingredients and it turned out great! ! We have a feeling they’ll be showing up at several of our upcoming family gatherings. We can’t wait to add them to our growing list of “go-to” appetizers. 😀
how to make them
Prepare. Heat oven to 375°F.
sausage. Cook sausage in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes, until no longer pink, then drain.
dough. Unroll the dough and shape into a 12-by-9-inch rectangle, pressing firmly on any perforations to seal. Cut into 6 rows of 4 to form 24 squares.
full. Place 1 round teaspoon sausage in the center of each dough square. Top with 1 tsp cream cheese.
fold. Bring the 4 corners together, overlapping slightly in the center of the top of each bunch. Twist and pinch to seal, leaving a small gap between the seams.
bake. Place on ungreased cookies and bake at 375 degrees for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot.
Choose your spice: The original recipe calls for a spicy jalapeno cream cheese, but if you don’t like a little creaminess, you can easily substitute it with regular cream cheese or even another flavored cream cheese. You can also change the sausage (from a bit spicier to milder) in case you want something less spicy.
Optional plugins: You can easily change the taste of these bites in a number of ways. Some ideas include:
- Shredded cheddar, Monterey, or Pepper Jack cheese
- boiled scrambled eggs
- cooked chopped bacon
- Chopped spinach leaves or cilantro
Make ahead and store leftovers
Prepare in advance: This is a very quick recipe. If you want to make the sausage the day before and store it in the refrigerator, you can. You can even assemble them a few hours before baking. Use a toothpick to help the dough stay closed.
Cover them in the refrigerator and remove toothpicks before baking.
Leftovers: Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Heat them in the microwave or oven.
How to freeze: These are great for freezing, a quick and easy breakfast or snack. To freeze them, let them cool completely after cooking. Freeze them on a baking sheet for 1-2 hours so they don’t freeze together.
Once they are individually frozen, place them in an airtight container or ziplock bag with a lid, removing as much air as possible from the bag before closing. Then store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
reheat They are 1-2 minutes in the microwave or in a low temperature oven.
These Cream Cheese Sausage Crescent Rolls are really flavorful and we can’t wait for you to try them. We think you will love them as much as we do.
