Sausage and Cheese Crescent Squares #34

I make two recipes that are similar to this one.  One is a breakfast casserole.  Pretty much the same casserole but substitute eggs for the cream cheese.  Another is the same except no cheddar on top.  I love the flavor of sausage and cream cheese together- especially in stuffed mushrooms. 

The case:

* 2 cans crescent rolls
* 1 lb sausage
* 8 oz cream cheese
* 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1.  Heat oven to 375.
2.  Unroll 1 crescent and place in 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish.  Press over bottom.
3.  Cook and drain sausage.  In same skillet, cook cream cheese over low heat until melted.  Add sausage back to skillet and mix to combine.
4.  Lay mixture over crescents.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Carefully lay second crescent rolls on top. 
5.  Bake 21- 26 minutes.

The ruling:
I have to admit this isn't very visually stimulating, but it is still tasty.  I think this would make a great brunch dish.  The cheddar didn't make that much of a difference to my original recipe, but I will definitely be making it this way again.  Michael says I need to start giving my recipes a rating.  I think 5 stars to too difficult, so I'm doing 1-10 stars.  I'd give this 7 stars.

  1. I like this recipe, I have one that uses cheese whiz in place of the cream cheese. Its easy to make. I also put eggs in it for Scott sometimes.
