This quick and easy recipe is a perfect appetizer for your next holiday party as well! And with just 3 ingredients you can’t beat it.
I also love this recipe because it can be personalized to your taste. Don’t love spicy things? No problem, use sweet sausage and cheddar cheese or any other combo you can think of! I really wanted to make these with half chorizo sausage but Wegmans didn’t have any ughh. Still loved them though!
1 lb hot Italian sausage patties or links
2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese
1 package Pillsbury crescent dough sheet (if you can’t find the sheet the crescent roll dough will work too, just press together the seams)
Flour for dusting
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Cut the links open if using links and break up the sausage into small pieces. Place in a mixing bowl. Add in the cheese, and using your hands, mix well.
Lightly dust a large cutting board with flour and spread out the crescent dough on the board. Stretch out the dough to form a nice rectangle.
Sprinkle another dusting of flour over the cut squares to help them not stick together. Separate the dough pieces and add to the sausage mixture. Using your hands, mix well.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until the crescent dough is golden brown.
