These crescent rolls are stuffed with a delicious mix of sausage, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese. They’re perfect for a quick and easy breakfast or snack. And they’re even better when dipped in hot sauce! I like to use hot Italian sausage, but you can use any kind of sausage that you like. Just be sure to cook it before you stuff the crescents. The dough is already pretty sticky, so there’s no need to add any extra fat to it. Just roll it out, stuff it with the filling, and bake! These crescents will be soft and fluffy, with a slightly crispy edge.

The sausage and cream cheese will be perfectly melted and gooey, and the cheddar will add a nice sharpness. So good!

Crescent rolls VS Croissants

No, croissants and crescent rolls are not the same. Croissants are a type of bread made from leavened dough that is rolled and shaped into a crescent shape. Crescent rolls, on the other hand, are made from unleavened dough that is also rolled and shaped into a crescent shape. Although they may look similar, the two types of bread have different textures and tastes.

Crescent roll dough VS puff pastry

No, crescent roll dough is not the same as puff pastry. Crescent rolls are made with a yeast-based dough, while puff pastry is made with a laminated dough that includes layers of butter or fat. The difference in ingredients results in different textures and tastes.

Sausage cream cheese crescents are a type of appetizer or snack that can be made with crescent roll dough and sausage. The sausage is typically ground and mixed with cream cheese, spices, and other flavors before being rolled up in the crescent dough. These bites can be baked or fried, and they are often served with a dipping sauce.

How do you know when Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents are fully cooked?

The best way to know when sausage cream cheese crescents are done is to insert a toothpick into the center of one. If it comes out clean, they’re ready!

How many carbohydrates are there in a crescent roll?

There are about 23 grams of carbohydrates in one crescent roll. However, the number of carbs will vary depending on the brand and the ingredients used. So, be sure to check the label before indulging in these delicious rolls!

What are some good pairings for Sausage Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls?

These savory sausage crescent rolls are perfect for any occasion! Serve them as an appetizer or side dish, or enjoy them for breakfast or brunch. They’re always a hit!

Pair these crescents with a simple green salad for a light meal, or serve them alongside some roasted vegetables for a heartier option. No matter how you enjoy them, they’re sure to please!

Tips

  • Use high-quality sausage. This is one dish where using the best ingredients will really make a difference. Choose a flavorful sausage that you enjoy eating on its own.
  • Be generous with the cream cheese filling. The goal is to have a nice, thick layer of cream cheese between the layers of dough. This will help to keep the crescents moist and prevent them from drying out.
  • Use a good quality crescent roll dough. Again, this is one instance where using a higher-quality product will make a big difference in the final result. Look for a dough that is made with real butter for the best flavor and texture.
  • Don’t over-bake the crescents. The last thing you want is for your crescents to be dry and crumbly. Watch them carefully as they bake and remove them from the oven as soon as they’re golden brown.

Variations

  • If you’re feeling adventurous, there are a few ways you can change up this recipe. For example, you could try using different types of sausage. Chorizo would be a great option, or even breakfast sausage. You could also add some shredded cheese to the mix for an extra cheesy treat.
  • If you’re not a fan of crescent rolls, you could also use puff pastry dough or even pie crust. Just make sure to roll it out thinly so that it doesn’t overpower the sausage filling.
  • Finally, if you want to spice things up a bit, you could add some diced jalapeños or other hot peppers to the filling. Just be careful not to add too much, or it will be too hot to handle!
