Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Divide sausage into 8 equal portions. Shape one portion of sausage around each egg, covering completely; coat with bread crumbs.
  • 2 Cut dough into 8 rectangles. Press each rectangle to form 4-inch square (if using crescent roll dough, firmly press perforations to seal). Place 1 sausage-wrapped egg on each square; wrap dough around sausage, stretching gently to avoid tearing. Pinch edges to seal. Spray each with cooking spray; coat with bread crumbs to cover completely. Place on cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm.
