3 pkg of crescent rolls, pref. butter flake

1 16 oz. pkg of Philadelphia cream cheese softened (can use the 1/3 of fat one, but never fat free)

1 Jimmy Dean sausage roll (standard size)

Brown sausage and break into small pieces. Meanwhile break up cream cheese in a bowl. When sausage is browned add to cream cheese and mix well.

Take crescent rolls and lay flat out taking each individual triangle and cutting them in half (if not careful you may need to knead triangle into small circles for best effect.

Take a teaspoon of the mixture and spoon a little at a time into each crescent roll then wrap mixture up into little ball making sure that mixture is sealed inside (you do not have to keep it completely covered but it creates less mess eating it that way).

Place balls individually on each 2 cookie sheets then bake at 350 for approx 8-10 minutes. If you have a particularly fast oven bake at 8 min taking care not to burn bottoms.

Cool for about 2-3 minutes and enjoy. With 2 pkgs of crescent rolls should make about 48 balls or roughly enough for 8-10 people.

Number Of Servings:
8 - 10
Personal Notes:
Funny name ... Delicious appetizer
