    In large bowl, mix sausage, cheese and rosemary; mix well using hands or spoon.
  • 3
    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.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To add a little kick (especially if you're using sausage that's not spicy), add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce to your crescent sausage balls.
  • tip 2
    You can make these sausage cheese balls ahead. Just place on pan, cover with foil and reheat in the oven at 350°F until heated through.
  • tip 3
    Use a cookie scoop to make portioning mixture even faster and more consistent.
