Cream Cheese and Crescent Sausage Rolls Recipe

Cream Cheese and Crescent Sausage Rolls Recipe


  • 1/2 pound of sausage (turkey or pork)
  • 2 ounces of cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1 package of crescent rolls (8 rolls)
  • 2 teaspoons of dry ranch dressing mix

I usually prefer turkey sausage for its leaner taste, but pork sausage offers a burst of flavor. The creamy, smooth texture of cream cheese complements the crispy crescent rolls, while the tangy ranch seasoning ties everything together beautifully.

Preparation Steps

Step 1: Cook the Sausage

Start by heating a lightly oiled pan over medium heat. Cook the sausage until it's nicely browned and crumbled into small pieces. This ensures that every bite of your roll has an even distribution of the delicious sausage flavor.

Step 2: Combine Sausage and Cream Cheese

Reduce the heat to low and add the cream cheese cubes to the sausage. Stir gently as the cream cheese melts, creating a smooth, creamy mixture that blends perfectly with the sausage. At this point, your kitchen will be filled with mouth-watering aromas!

Step 3: Add Ranch Seasoning

Sprinkle the dry ranch dressing mix over the sausage and cream cheese mixture. Stir well to ensure the seasoning is evenly distributed, adding a unique tangy flavor to the filling.

Step 4: Prepare the Crescent Rolls

Unroll the crescent dough and separate it into triangles. For larger rolls, leave them as they are. For smaller party-sized snacks, cut each triangle in half.

Step 5: Fill and Roll

Divide the sausage and cream cheese filling evenly among the dough pieces. Starting from the wider end, roll up each piece to encase the filling securely.

Step 6: Bake

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the rolls on a baking sheet and bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.

Serving Suggestions

The result is warm, flaky crescent rolls filled with a luscious sausage and cream cheese mixture. These rolls are perfect for breakfast or as party appetizers. Serve them hot and enjoy the combination of creamy, tangy, and savory flavors.

Tips and Variations

  • Add More Cheese: Sprinkle some shredded cheddar or mozzarella inside for an extra cheesy kick.
  • Herbs and Spices: Experiment with different herbs and spices in the filling to suit your taste preferences.
  • Dipping Sauces: Serve with a side of marinara sauce, ranch dressing, or honey mustard for dipping.
