Sausage Crescent Bites are easy and quick to make for a busy school day morning or an appetizer before the football game.
I put together the recipe to one of our favorite snacks that never goes out of style. So delicious you could eat them by the handful! I love serving sausage crescent bites with a side of mustard as dipping sauce but they are great if you eat them while hot right off the baking pan too.
Start with your favorite brand of sausage and crescent rolls. We like either sage or country blend ground sausage because it is not too spicy.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray to keep your crescent roll dough from sticking while they bake. This also helps in the next few steps to keep the dough from falling apart as you put sausage on the crescent roll dough.
Roll out the crescent roll dough so that you have two length wise sheets. Use a dab of water to wet your fingertips and then pinch the perforated lines together to make 2 long sheets of dough.
Next, spread sausage out evenly across the dough. I used a fork to spare my hands from having to be washed for the umpteenth time.
Roll your dough length wise to create two long rolls. I tried to roll mine as tightly as possible and had to use a few dabs of water on my fingertips to keep the dough from separating.
Cut your sections to be about an inch or two in length. Rule of thumb is to use the first bend in your pointer finger and your knuckle to measure out about an inch before each cut. As you cut, place the sausage crescent rolls about an inch or two apart on your baking sheet.
Bake per the instructions on the back of your crescent dough packaging. I typically bake mine at 350 degrees for about 13 minutes. Keep checking them until the dough is golden brown and the sausage is fully cooked.
I hope you get to make some of these delicious sausage crescent bites soon to enjoy! They are perfect to make as a quick breakfast to send off to school with the kids or as a weekend snack!
