Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Now here's a breakfast dish that will call you taste buds to attention! The heat of the pork sausage is a great way to start off your day, but feel free to substitute in a milder sausage if you like.


2 can(s)
pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 lb
hot pork sausage

    Hi Penny! Thank you for sharing this recipe. Made it just a while ago...YUM! I added some to it and made it a full one meal/breakfast casserole. I added some fried potatoes, scrambled eggs and a little fresh basil. OH MY WAS IT GOOD! Thank you again for sharing this easy and yummy recipe.

    I make something very close to this as well. And EVERYONE loves it. I cook my sausage (Jimmy Dean-mild or hot)after it's cooked I add the cream cheese and mix together. I take the Cresent rolls and divide/cut out and put in a mini-miffin pan. Add the sausage/cream cheese mixture and bake (directions on Crest rolls). Family is standing there waiting for them to come out of the oven. YUMMY!
