1 (8 ounce) package
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
This was great! When the sausage was almost done, I added in 6 eggs to scramble with it. I also added in salsa to the mixture and added the sharp cheddar to the whole mixture instead of sprinkling it. My son especially kept telling me how awesome it was. Very easy to make! :)
Overall, I felt that the sausage and cheese combination was too salty and the leftovers did not taste good the next day (after being microwaved).
I wanted to use this recipe as a breakfast dish, so I substituted the cream cheese for scrambled eggs. After I drained off the grease from the sausage, I mixed 6 eggs with 1/4 c. milk and poured into the cooked sausage in the pan; stirred to cook to a soft egg stage, and then poured it over the bottom crust in the pan. Topped with cheese and the other crescent dough, it turned out wonderful!
Delicious! I loved it, I tried to make a mummy instead of sandwiches and didnt do the best job, but it was by far the favorite dish of the day!
Winner, Winner in my house! This is a lot like sausage puffs with the additional cheese. This is a good appetizer (as recipe is written) but it looks like the breakfast crowd is critiquing it as a breakfast. It can be both but critique it as an appetizer. If you try this as a breakfast offering, put your scrambled eggs on the side or you might have soggy crescent rolls and judge it unfairly.
I didn't love the recipe as written, but my husband and kids did. Next time, I'll add eggs to it and make more of a breakfast casserole. It just seemed like it needed to be more quiche-like for some odd reason. This was very simple to assemble, and would be great for people who don't have time to cook or consider themselves not to be good cooks. I think it would go over well at pot lucks and brunches.
Very good! Nice and mild. Would make again.
I carried this dish to a Pastor Appreciation Brunch. I believe the staff must have felt appreciated since it was all eaten :)
