How to Make Maple Sausage Crescent Rolls

This dish is effortless to make with only four simple ingredients. In a large skillet, cook maple sausage over medium-high heat until no longer pink and crumbled. Drain excess grease. In a mixing bowl, stir together cooked sausage crumbles, cream cheese, and maple syrup. 

Separate crescent dough into triangles. Cut each triangle in half lengthwise – making 32 triangles.

Using a small cookie scoop or spoon, scoop the sausage mixture onto the wide end of each roll and roll up. Place on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • I use Jimmy Dean Maple Breakfast Sausage.
    • If you can’t find maple sausage, you can use regular pork sausage and add a little extra maple syrup or maple extract.
  • Can use turkey sausage, reduced-fat crescent rolls, and low-fat cream cheese for reduced calories.
  • I like to chill the sausage filling for about 20 or 30 minutes before assembling the crescent rolls. I find that the filling stays together better if slightly chilled.
  • Make sure to chop any large chunks of sausage. You can do this with a knife or pulse the sausage in a food processor before combing it with the cream cheese and syrup.
  • I use a pizza cutter to cut the crescent roll dough into two triangles.
  • Can I make Sausage Crescent Rolls in advance? Yes! You can make the cream cheese mixture ahead of time and store in the fridge for up to 3 days before assembling the rolls.
    • You can also assemble the crescent rolls and place them on a baking sheet. Cover the baking pan with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight before baking.
  • Can I Freeze Sausage Crescent Rolls? Yes. Place the cooled crescent rolls in a freezer-safe container and store them for up to 2 months.
    • Thaw them out in the fridge before reheating them. 
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
    • Reheat in the microwave or in a toaster oven.

Comments

  1. Want to take these to a potluck. Would they hold up in a crockpot on warm until ready to eat? Or would they get soggy?

    1. After these are baked, can they be frozen and then thawed and reheated and if so what would be the best method to reheat them? Thank you!

      1. You can reheat them in the microwave or covered with aluminum foil in the oven

  2. I made these today. They are very good. I found that if I let the mixture sit a little bit, it firmed up and stayed in place better when I rolled them and the rolls would hold a bit more of the mixture. Everyone loved them, so I will definitely make them again!

  3. These look great! Do you know approximately how big the tree is (height and width)? I'm trying to figure out if I have a serving platter that will hold it. Thank you!

  4. What brand of Maple sausage do you use? These look really good. I’ve actually never heard of Maple sausage before. Thanks

  5. I'm just really excited to see someone putting out an egg free breakfast recipe!! Thank you! I'll have to try them.

      1. I made these they turned out really good!! I added a couple more tablespoons of maple syrup to the mix, a little sweeter was just what they needed for my crew. I also mixed up some butter and syrup to dip them in… Perfect! Thank you for the recipe…
