Sausage & Cream Cheese Crescents

Sausage and Cream Cheese Crescents - only 3 ingredients! Great breakfast or party food! Can make filling ahead of time. People go crazy over these things!

I've had this recipe for years. I got it from my co-workers at my second job in The 'Ham. You can make these as individual servings like I do or lay one can of rolls out and top with the sausage mix and then top with the second can of rolls. I like the individual rolls - I can eat more!
