Notes

For easier slicing, wrap the rolls tightly in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 8-ounce can refrigerated crescent rolls or refrigerated seamless crescent dough sheet
  • Flour, for sprinkling
  • ¼ Cup garlic and herb cheese spread
  • ½ Cup cooked and crumbled sausage, such as Jimmy Dean Original Sausage Crumbles

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Grease two baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

Unroll the dough into 4 rectangles or cut the dough into 4 rectangles. Place on lightly floured surface. Firmly press the perforations to seal if using crescent rolls. Press or roll each piece of dough to form 8- by 5-inch rectangles.

Spread 1 tablespoon of the cheese spread over each rectangle. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons sausage. Starting at short side, roll the dough up to form 4 logs. Seal the long edges. Using a serrated knife, cut each roll into 5 slices.

Place the spirals cut-side up on the prepared baking sheets.

Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the cookie sheets and serve warm.

Cheesy Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheesy Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
