Crispy crescent roll sausage bake is filled with a savory sausage and cream cheese center. It’s the perfect breakfast recipe!
I love quick and easy crescent roll recipes which include favorites like Cinnamon Twist, Breakfast crescent Ring, and Cinnamon Cream Cheese Crescent rolls. You will definitely want to add this 3 ingredient crescent roll sausage bake to your go to list!!
Who here loves breakfast dishes?!
We are pretty obsessed, and we especially love the breakfast recipes that are simple and quick. Crescent roll sausage bake is just one of those! I had gotten the recipe from a friend and later found one via Pinterest from The Kitchen is my Playground that only required 3 ingredients. Say what?! Yeah, I knew I had to give it a try. My friend had made hers a little different and another friend who makes this told me she rolls it up. I haven’t tried the rolled up version yet, but this basic, simple version is so easy we’ve already made it a few times (the husband especially LOVED it).
My friend who made the rolled up version also used a sausage that has maple in it which gave it a sweet taste that I really liked, so I’m excited to try that next. You can also use hot sausage, turkey sausage, practically any sausage that you prefer to use. I ended up using the Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage crumbles since I always have them on hand for breakfast dishes. That particular sausage is also already cooked which makes the recipe even more simple and quick.
If you’re looking to try a very delicious, easy and new recipe, I highly recommend making this Crescent Roll Sausage Bake. It’s great, and I love that it can be changed so easily with different meats and cheeses!!
3 INgredient Sausage Bake
PREP. Preheat oven to 375.
SAUSAGE. Place sausage crumbles and cream cheese in a medium pot and cook on low heat until combined and warm.
CRESCENTS. Unroll crescent roll dough onto a greased pan and pinch seams together.
LAYER. Pour sausage and cream cheese mixture over dough and spread around. Unroll second crescent roll dough and place over the top of the sausage.
BAKE. Pinch seams together and pinch two crescent roll doughs together all around the edges. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Serve warm. ENJOY!
Tips + Variations
To make it more flavorful, season the sausage or find sausage that is made with maple syrup, apple, or even just Italian sausage depending on your mood. To season it I would suggest salt, pepper, garlic, and a little bit of paprika. Make sure to put the seasoning into the sausage and cream cheese mixture when it’s on the stove so that it all becomes well incorporated.
Follow the same steps in a 9×13 pan. I would suggest watching it carefully while baking, perhaps using a glass pan, to make sure the crescent roll bottom is fully cooked when all is said and done.
If the bottom is soggy, your oven may be heating the pan unevenly so I recommend that next time you cover the casserole with foil to prevent the top from browning while letting it bake more.
As a variation, any meat can easily be substituted in place of bacon.
For overnight prep, if you have bought sausage that needs to be cooked you can cook and season the night before and in the morning put everything together. In the recipe I used pre-cooked sausage crumbles so it’s just a quick assembly process.
STORE leftovers covered in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave or larger servings in the oven until warmed through.
I’m telling you – this is too easy and delicious not to love!!
