"This very simple casserole is made with sausage, cream cheese, and crescent roll dough. If you have hectic mornings, you can bake it at night and just cut and reheat portions the next morning in the microwave." — MOM3TCB

bulk pork sausage
cream cheese, softened
2 (8 ounce) cans
refrigerated crescent rolls
Excellent recipe! It was a big hit with my family. I did tweak it a littl though, I added half of a sweet onion, minced, some chopped mushrooms, and some garlic powder to the spread. Then when it was done I brushed the top with margerine and sprinkled on some parmessan cheeze. As my fiancee said, "It tastes like more!"
It was quick and simple. I made a side dish of stir fryed asparagus. I also had a plate of fresh fruit, nuts, cheese and olives. It was cool to have a bite of olive, or a bit of fruit to nibble with the cassarole.
The PTA Mom for my daughter's class introduced this to us as "Sausage Squares" and now I make it for every breakfast event at the office and it is everyone's favorite! I even put it all together the night before and then bake the next morning while getting ready for work and I think it turns out even better. Also, try it with the spicy pork sausage and the butter flavored crescent rolls for a little more 'umph' even! The best!
This is VERY GOOD!!!! I made this when my in-laws came in. They loved it. But I stuff the rolls with the mixture rater than put it in a cassarole.
This was a good base recipe, but with just the sausage and cream cheese, kinda bland, so here is what I did. I sauted red onion and garlic in olive oil before adding to sausage. I added 1/4 lb. of ground beef to the sausage mixture. To the meat/cream cheese (I also used whipped cream cheese w/chives) I added about a half of pkg. of frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed free of water. 1 can of rotel tomatoes, Italian seasoning, salt, garlic pepper, celery seed. Also added a handful of shredded coby/jack cheese. Mix well and add to pre-baked crescent pan. After adding the mix to the pan, I topped with more co/jack cheese, and covered with the remaining dough. Before baking in oven for about 20-30 minutes, I spread the dough with butter and added a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Turned out great...
This recipe was actually really good. Note if the cresent roles are not done all the way set your oven to broil for 3 minutes and the roles will be done. It was good and very filling.
I made this with a friend and her family many years ago and I loved it so much. Hot or cold. Though it is still good with normal sausage I really like to make it with spicy. Depending on the pan of course you may have to cook it longer than said.
Easy and very filling. I cooked the bottom crust for at least 10 minutes, and I ended up adding a lot of time to the second cooking as well. I wonder if the oven temp should be raised to at least 375 degrees.
