Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents

Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents are a delicious and easy-to-make appetizer or snack. They combine the flavors of sausage and creamy cheese wrapped in flaky crescent roll dough. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to prepare this recipe:


  • 1 package of crescent roll dough (8 rolls)
  • 1/2 pound (about 8 ounces) of ground sausage (you can use mild or spicy, depending on your preference)
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray or parchment paper (for lining the baking sheet)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the crescent roll dough package. Typically, it’s around 350°F (175°C).
  2. Cook the Sausage: In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground sausage until it’s browned and fully cooked, breaking it apart into crumbles as it cooks. Use a spatula to break it up into small pieces. Once cooked, remove any excess grease by draining it from the pan.

  1. Combine Sausage and Cream Cheese: In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked sausage, softened cream cheese, chopped green onions (if using), garlic powder (if using), salt, and pepper. Mix everything together until it’s well combined.
  2. Prepare the Crescent Rolls: Unroll the crescent roll dough, and separate it into individual triangles. Lay them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or greased with cooking spray.
  3. Add Filling: Place a spoonful of the sausage and cream cheese mixture onto the wide end of each crescent roll triangle.
  4. Roll ‘Em Up: Roll up each crescent roll, starting from the wide end and tucking in the sides as you go. This will encase the filling inside.
  5. Bake: Place the filled crescents on the baking sheet in the preheated oven. Bake them according to the instructions on the crescent roll dough package, usually for about 10-12 minutes, or until they turn golden brown.
  6. Serve: Once they’re done baking, remove the crescents from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Then, serve them warm.

Enjoy your delicious Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents as a tasty appetizer or snack! You can also consider serving them with a dipping sauce, such as marinara or ranch dressing, for added flavor.
