Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls 001

Cold day outside here so I heated up the Kitchen and tried a new recipe, Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls from Pillsbury. Found this recipe in a cooking magazine, sounded good so I thought I would give it a try. I had actually tried this recipe last year about this time but I used Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breakfast Sausage. So this time I’m going with original recipe and using Spicy Sausage, I used Bob Evan’s Zesty Hot Pork Sausage. For my other ingredients I used Pillsbury Reduced Calorie Crescent Rolls and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Both which cut back on calories, fat, and carbs.

To prepare them, heat oven to 375°F. Then line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix sausage, cheese and rosemary; mix well using your hands or spoon. Unroll crescent dough on work surface; coat each side of dough with 1 tablespoon flour. Using pizza cutter or knife, cut dough into about 1/4-inch pieces. Mix crescent dough pieces into bowl of sausage mixture in small amounts until well blended. Shape the mixture into 42 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place in pan. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.

You can eat these just as they are or serve them with some French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, which worked well with it. The Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls turned out delicious! They had a really good Spicy flavor, not over powering just right. This will make a perfect Christmas or New Year’s appetizer for your family and friends gatherings! The original recipe and the Pillsbury web link is at the end of the post.
