Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Cook Sausage: In a skillet over medium heat, cook the breakfast sausage until it’s browned and cooked through. Use a spatula to break it up into smaller pieces as it cooks. Once cooked, remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Prepare Cream Cheese Mixture: In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese with optional garlic powder and onion powder. Mix until smooth.
  4. Combine Sausage and Cream Cheese: Add the cooked sausage to the cream cheese mixture. Mix until well combined. If you’re using shredded cheddar cheese, you can also add it to this mixture.
  5. Prepare Crescent Rolls: Open the can of refrigerated crescent rolls and separate them into triangles along the perforated lines.
  6. Fill and Roll: Spoon a small amount of the sausage and cream cheese mixture onto each crescent roll triangle. Roll the crescent rolls up starting from the wide end and rolling towards the tip.
  7. Bake: Place the filled crescent rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly greased. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Serve: Once baked, remove the rolls from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your delicious sausage cream cheese crescent rolls!
