  • 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.
  • Are meatballs more your style? Transform frozen meatballs, pasta sauce, and Pillsbury™ Crescents into Pull-Apart Crescent Meatball Sliders for a comforting appetizer.
