Sausage Bites

Here’s another great Pinterest find.  I made these for a party we attended and everyone loved them.  I served with a side of mustard and ketchup… but truly, they don’t need anything.  They’re addictive!  The original recipe can be found on  These were quick, easy and a huge HIT! 
1 pkg hot Italian sausage
1 white onion, chopped small
1 clove garlic, minced
Dash of Salt & Pepper
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, at room temperature
2 pkgs refrigerated crescent rolls
Olive Oil
Drizzle a tiny bit of Olive Oil into a heated non-stick skillet.  Add onions and garlic; sauté until translucent. 
Add Hot Italian Sausage; cook thoroughly breaking sausage into small pieces.  Remove from heat, drain any excess oil and allow to slightly cool. Add a dash of salt and pepper and the cream cheese; mix until cream cheese is melted into sausage mixture.
Unroll one package of crescent rolls and place on a baking sheet. With your fingers, gently press the seams together to seal them. Spread the sausage mixture evenly over the crescent roll dough, leaving about a 1/2-inch border along the edges.
Unroll the remaining package of crescent rolls and place on top of the sausage mixture. Press the edges together to seal. Gently press the seams together.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until crescent roll dough is golden brown.
Cut into small squares and serve.  (A pizza cutter makes really quick and easy work of the cutting.)
