Ingredients

  • 1
    lb bulk spicy sausage
  • 2
    cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/2
    teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
  • 1
    can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2
    tablespoons all-purpose flour

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    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.
  • 4
    Shape mixture into 42 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place in pan. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.

  • To add a little kick (especially if you use sausage that's not spicy), add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce.
  • You can make the sausage cheese balls ahead. Just place on pan, cover with foil and reheat in the oven at 350°F until heated through.
