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.
Melt the cream cheese in a microwavable bowl for 20-30 seconds or until soft.
Add sausage to the cream cheese and mix together.
Generously butter a sheet pan.
Lay crescent rolls out on the buttered pan.
Crimp the seams together to make one large crescent roll.
Place the cream cheese/sausage mixture in the center of the roll.
Carefully pull up corners of the crescent roll over the mixture, crimping it shut.
Brush egg white over the entire crescent roll. This will give it a nice shine when it’s baked.
Bake at 350° for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.
