Crescent Sausage Bites

3-ingredient Crescent Sausage Bites - this simple appetizer is great for parties and get togethers and is so full of flavor!

Appetizers are the best!! There is nothing better than going to a get together or party and having some delicious bite-sized snacks to much on. That is why we are always on the look out for new appetizers to try. We recently found these crescent sausage bites and thought we’d give them a try! It was a good thing we did, because these were so yummy (especially if you like a little spice). I couldn’t stop popping these in my mouth.

The original recipe called for spicy jalapeno cream cheese, but if you are not a fan of a little nip, you could easily switch that out with regular cream cheese or even another flavored cream cheese. And you can also change up the sausage (from a little more spicy to mild) as well, in case you want something less spicy.

Crescent Sausage Bites

What we loved most is how simple these work. They took minutes to throw together, required just a few ingredients and turned out fabulous!! We have a feeling they will be showing up at several of our upcoming family get togethers in December. And we can’t wait to add them to our ever-growing “go-to” favorite appetizers list. 😀
