I cannot take and credit for these; I got the recipe from my friend, Lindsey. These are great for breakfast or brunch, and on a mild day, these are a huge hit at a tailgate. Four ingredients….you can’t afford NOT to make these!
Sausage Cheese Squares
2 lbs sausage (1 hot, 1 mild, or turkey sausage)
1 8oz package cream cheese (I use fat free)
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
2 cans crescent roll dough (I use reduced fat)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9X13 baking dish, set aside. Brown the sausage and drain. Add in cream cheese and combine to mix and melt. Unroll one can of dough and spread it in the bottom of the dish. Pour the sausage mixture over the dough and spread out evenly. Sprinkle cheese on top of sausage. Roll out second can of dough and place it on top of the cheese. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool. Cut and serve.
This time when I made it, I used hot sausage for both pounds and it was VERY good! The cream cheese cuts the heat a little. It’s up to you. Give ’em a try!
