  • 2 pounds pork sausage (such as Jimmy Dean®)

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped

  • 4 (8 ounce) packages crescent roll dough, unrolled and divided into triangles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Cook and stir sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned, about 8 minutes. Drain.

  3. Mix sausage, onion, cream cheese, and jalapeno peppers together in a bowl until well combined. Spoon about 1 tablespoon sausage mixture onto each crescent dough triangle; fold corners around sausage and roll up into a crescent, ending at the tip of the triangle. Place rolls on baking sheets.

  4. Bake in preheated oven until rolls are golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

May freeze after baking and reheat before serving.
