  • 2 Packages Crescent Rolls
  • 8 Oz. Cream Cheese room temperature
  • 16 Oz. Jimmy Dean Sausage 1 standard package
  • 1 Mediun Onion Diced
  • 1/2 Tsp. Garlic Powder


  • Preheat oven to 375 Fahrenheit. In a saucepan, cook the sausage, diced onion, and garlic powder until thoroughly cooked through. Make sure to break up the sausage in small pieces while cooking.
  • Drain and cool.
  • Add the cream cheese to the sausage mixture. Mix with a spoon until blended. Set aside.
  • Open the first container of crescent rolls. Separate the first crescent and cut in half to make two triangles.
  • Fill each triangle with a teaspoon of the sausage and cream cheese mixture. Then bring the sides of the crescent dough up and around the filling. Make sure to pinch together to seal. Continue adding filling to the rest of the crescents.
  • Place on cookie sheet approximately 1 inch apart.

  • Bake for 11-14 minutes or until the crescent is golden brown. No worries about the inside filling as that is already pre-cooked and safe to eat.
  • Enjoy plain or with the maple syrup drizzle or some other dipping sauce.
