Cheesy Sausage Crescent Wraps!





This is a really easy breakfast idea I made for breakfast this morning.  It's like a sausage biscuit but in a crescent roll.  Crescent rolls are so versatile and good for so many things.  I did use the Big Buttery crescent rolls for this recipe.  The crescent rolls that are 50% bigger, but you can use the regular ones also. The bigger ones do hold the filling better.  Here is all you will need for these yummy wraps:



Crescent rolls, cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, and sausage.  I used the precooked sausage crumbles that Jimmy Dean makes, but you can also crumble and brown a roll of sausage.  I felt like I was cheating on my favorite sausage maker...Purnell's, but as far as I know they don't make these crumbles and I had a coupon for them and they were on sale...is that enough excuses.  These crumbles are handy for pizza, quiches, breakfast casseroles and such.  A good idea is to brown up a couple of rolls of sausage (Purnell's) and let it cool, then put it in Ziploc bags and freeze it just for these type of recipes. 




I just softened the cream cheese to spreading consistency by popping it in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Spread a thin layer on each crescent roll, sprinkle some of the sausage over each one, and then sprinkle with a little cheddar cheese. 





Roll each one up as you would a crescent roll.  Place on a cookie sheet or pizza pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.  Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for 13 -15 minutes or until lightly browned. 

You have a delicious breakfast sandwich in less than 30 minutes!
