It's so easy that it doesn't even seem like cooking!
Supplies needed: frying pan, pancake spatula, slotted spoon and knife
Ingredients: 1 lb roll of sausage (flavor of your choice) and 8 ounce of cream cheese
What to do:
- Brown sausage. Break it up while it is cooking by using a pancake spatula.
- Cut cream cheese into squares.
- When sausage is done, drain any excess oil.
- Add cream cheese to sausage.
- Keep mixture on a low-medium heat and stir until cream cheese has melted and is incorporated.
I thought this was going to be like a dip, but it was more like a filling. I had served it with foods that could be dipped, but we ended up eating the mixture on crackers. The sausage I bought seemed quite salty and no one liked that. Papa Bear didn't care much for the mixture by itself and the girls did eat some of it.
- If I were to make this again, I would definitely use it as a filling. My friend Heather suggested placing one spoonful of the mix on widest part of crescent roll triangle & rolling it up. Then, follow the baking directions for the crescent rolls & viola! savory sausage stuffed crescent rolls.
- This mixture could be more dip-like if you increase the cream cheese to 16 ounces and add a can of Rotel (tomatoes) as suggested by my friend Cara Leigh. Use green onions to garnish.
- You could change up the flavors of the mixture by using different flavors of sausage and/or cream cheese.
- Children can help out by cutting the cream cheese into squares. If you used this as a filling, children could help fill and roll the crescents.
