Each little bite is packed with flavor in these 3-ingredient sausage appetizers.

Ingredients

1/2
lb bulk hot pork sausage
1/2
cup spicy jalapeño cream cheese spread (from 8-oz container)
1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dough sheet or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink; drain.
  • 2 Unroll dough on work surface. Press into 12x9-inch rectangle. If using crescent roll dough, firmly press perforations to seal. With pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 squares.
  • 3 Place about 1 rounded teaspoon sausage on center of each dough square. Top with about 1 teaspoon cream cheese. Bring 4 corners together to overlap slightly in center at top of each bundle. Twist and pinch to seal, leaving small gaps between seams. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 4 Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

Garnish these sausage bites with a dollop of sour cream and a cilantro sprig.

Too spicy? Substitute plain cream cheese or garden vegetable cream cheese spread for the spicy jalapeño cream cheese spread.
