Not to be eaten all the time, but man are they good. Good for a special breakfast or luncheon. Serve with fresh fruit, juice or a mimosa for something really special.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Crumble the sausage into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until browned. Drain grease, and mix in the cream cheese, cayenne pepper, parsley and mushrooms. Remove from the heat, and allow to cool. Chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Unroll the crescent roll dough, and separate at the perforations. Stretch each one out as large as you can without breaking, and place a large spoonful of the sausage mixture at the large end. Wrap up like a diaper: fold in the sides, and roll towards the point. Press any openings together to seal. Place on a baking sheet.

  • Bake for 16 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.

I made these for Christmas eve with the relatives. WONDERFUL!!! I did add spinach to the mix and they were eaten up in no time flat. My husband doesn't even like spinach. I'm positive I will make these again. Read More

These were easy and worked...we just did not like the strong cream cheese flavor and felt that it needed more seasonings or maybe sauteed onions and garlic to boost the flavor. Cayenne was too hot for us too. Read More

Be careful to adjust to your taste - I cut the Cayenne pepper in half to begin with and these still had a little kick... but were a good breakfast treat. Thank you. Read More

This is fantastic! Made these for a morning potluck at work years ago and people still rave about them. I’ll make them for breakfast at home with a side of over easy eggs. Yum! Read More
