Cream Cheese Sausage Crescent Roll

I’ve enjoyed making this cream cheese sausage crescent roll for a long time and thought it would be fun to document the process. My Mom made this for me when I  a child and I’ve been hooked ever since. This flaky, cheesy, porky, amazing breakfast roll has brought a lot of smiles, full stomachs and probably some high cholesterol to my family over the years. The best part, besides the flavor, is that it’s really easy to make.

Only 4 ingredients are needed:

  • 1 can Crescent rolls
  • 1 package Cream Cheese
  • 1 lb. breakfast sausage
  • egg white


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage until it’s no longer pink.2sausage
