Sweet & Savory Sausage Bites

These Glazed Sausage & Cream Cheese Crescents are one of our all-time favorite recipes. They are super simple to make and taste GREAT!! Sausage cream cheese crescent rolls topped with my favorite brown sugar glaze and baked. I can’t believe I never thought to make this before. OMG! To-die-for!! I ate WAY too many of these yummy sausage bites when I made them for the blog. They ended up being my lunch because I couldn’t stop eating them. They are delicious hot out of the oven or cooled to room temperature. Perfect party food. You MUST make these ASAP!

How to Make Glazed Sausage & Cream Cheese Crescents

These sausage stuffed crescent rolls are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large skillet, cook breakfast sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain fat. Stir together the cooked sausage and cream cheese. Set aside. 

Unroll crescent rolls and separate rolls into triangles. Cut each triangle down the middle forming two triangles. You will have a total of 32 triangles. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop a heaping tablespoon of the sausage mixture onto the wide end of each triangle and roll up. Place the crescent rolls in a 9×13-inch baking dish. In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, and poppy seeds. Cook over medium-low heat until melted. Pour the sauce over the crescent rolls in the baking pan and bake in the oven until golden brown.

  • I use Jimmy Dean breakfast pork sausage. I usually use hot sausage to give the rolls a little kick.
  • Can substitute turkey sausage for a lower calorie option.
  • I like to pulse the cooked sausage in the food processor before combining it with the cream cheese.
  • Use a pizza cutter to easily cut the crescent roll dough into triangles.
  • I prefer to keep the sausage mixture simple, but you can add some shredded sharp cheddar cheese, onions, bell pepper, and garlic if you prefer.
  • For added flavor, you can use onion and chive cream cheese. YUM!
  • Can Glazed Sausage & Cream Cheese Crescents be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the crescent rolls ahead of time and refrigerate them overnight. Add the glaze right before baking.
  • You can make the cream cheese sausage filling ahead of time and refrigerate it in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.

What to Serve with Sausage & Cream Cheese Bites

These sausage bites are always a hit! These rolls make a great appetizer. They are also perfect for breakfast and brunch. Whenever I these to a party or potluck, I never have any leftovers! I usually make a doubt batch to make sure everyone gets some. Nobody can resist these things!

We like to serve these for breakfast with some fresh fruit, roasted potatoes, and cinnamon rolls. They are also great with some scrambled eggs, quiche, and a salad.

A MUST for breakfast, brunch, potlucks, tailgates and parties!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (1-lb) roll breakfast sausage , cooked and crumbled
  • 1 (8-oz) cream cheese , softened
  • 2 (8-oz) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • In a non-stick skillet, cook sausage until crumbled and no longer pink. Drain fat.
  • Mix together cooked sausage and cream cheese. Set aside.
  • Separate rolls into triangles. Cut eat triangle in half lengthwise making two triangles. Using a small cookie scoop and scoop sausage filling onto each roll and roll up. Place in the prepared baking dish.

Notes:

  • I used Jimmy Dean Sausage. Can substitute turkey sausage.
  • I like to pulse the cooked sausage in a food processor to get it very finely chopped. It isn’t necessary, but it helps to get all of the ingredients evenly incorporated.
  • Can substitute low-fat cream cheese if you prefer.
  • Can use reduced-fat crescent rolls. I use the reduced fat crescent rolls all the time. You can’t tell a difference.
  • You can make the filling ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to assemble the crescents. The filling will keep up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
  • I find it easier to cut the crescent rolls in half with a pizza cutter.
  • I use a small cookie scoop to scoop the filling on to the crescent rolls.
  • These bites taste great hot out of the oven or cooled to room temperature.

  1. I don’t usually come back to leave a rating or comment, but to say that these gems were a hit is an understatement! When I read the recipe/blog to my husband and got to the part that said “To-Die-For” he responded “we’ll see about that” – and we did. I doubled the recipe and within 17 minutes of east brunch with 18 adults they were gone! Grown men were literally hovering over the dish eating them. Everyone RAVED about them…

    These will definitely be on my dish to pass rotation. Thanks!

  2. Made it exactly to the recipe. Took them down to the corner tavern. All gone!! Instantly. Another addiction. Soo easy and soo delicious. Ya gotta make these folks. Thanks for the keeper recipe..

  3. Ok made these tonight and my husband asked me what they were called when I told him he said nope they are now called “Glazed sausage and cream cheese bombs” and we are making these again. I used chive and onion cc and added fresh chives. I also put garlic powder, parsley and ground sage on the sausage.YUMMY!!!!

  4. I made these for our Super Bowl Party and they were a total hit! Multiple people asked for the recipe. I followed the recipe with no changes, non needed! Delicious and addictive!!
