Sausage Cream Cheese Bites
Certain mornings seem to be crazy at our house…period. LOL.. It doesn’t seem to matter how well the day is planned, those mornings are just rough on all of us. Sunday morning while preparing to leave for services is one of those mornings. We are usually grabbing something to eat as we hit the door and the choices are not always the healthiest.
So while looking for something that is quick, easy and doesn’t require anything more than a napkin to eat while on the run… The Sausage – Cream Cheese Bite was introduced to our mornings. Thumbs up by everyone! Of course..they are also amazing appetizers or finger food items to take to fellowship meals.
They are so simple to whip up and you can prepare the filling the night before to make prep time even shorter. If preparing the night before, I will combine mixture, divide into (2) two balls and roll back and forth to make a rope about (6) six inches before wrapping in plastic wrap and placing in the refrigerator. In the morning, prepare the dough while the oven is preheating and simple slice rounds off the filling snake and place down the center of the dough. Continue with prep as usual.
3-4 links/patties cooked and crumbled sausage (remove skins from links)
1 Can crescent roll dough
1 bar cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon garlic and herb seasoning
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Place crumbled sausage, cream cheese, seasonings, and pepper in a medium bowl – stir until well combined with a fork or on low with beaters
Set aside to allow flavors to blend
Foil cover and lightly spray a baking tray
Open the crescent dough and break in half along tear lines
Unroll each half until two long rectangles, being careful to not break seams. Pinch to close any seams so you have two nice rectangles
Divide the cream cheese mixture in half and spoon or crumble the mixture down the middle of each dough rectangle
Bring up both sides of the dough to cover the cheese mixture. Pinch to close any holes or seams along the log and on the ends. Gently turn logs seam side down on pan and cut into eight (8) equal pieces by cutting each log in half, then each half in half and finally halving the remaining sections. Just make them as even as possible, it isn’t rocket science.
Separate each piece and crimp the cut edges with a fork.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Allow to cool for several minutes as the insides are molten!
If you do not have garlic and herb seasoning, just use your favorite spice blend or rub
You can substitute fresh seasonings if you have them (parsley, dill and cilantro are excellent in these)
Need to save even more time? Prepare the sausage and cream cheese mixture the night before and pull out when ready to use
