Sausage and Cheese Crescents {Recipe}

Family parties to me {in part} mean appetizers. Well, they mean love and joy and all of that too, but that all happens while we crowd around the island eating appetizers. Sometimes we have appetizer cook offs where we compete against each other but most times, it ends up being an island full of Mama H’s specialties (buff chix dip, stromboli, grape meatballs) and other fun ones we are trying.

Last week was C’s birthday and so once again we came together over our appetizers. This time I tried out a new one that included a new(er) obsession, cheese.

Today I am linking up with a bunch of lovely and talented ladies. We are creating a New Years Eve Party Plan and this is  one stop. Sausage and Cheese Crescents would make a perfect app for New Years Eve or any other gathering that you need to head out to as you can make them up ahead of time and then bake when you get there. I introduce to you, Sausage and Cheese Crescents.


Find a homemade crescent recipe like this one or if you are in more of a rush, grab crescent dough.

Saute some breakfast style sausage (we get ours from Paul and Ember at Country Time Farm) with onions.


Dice some cheddar cheese (I used Kerrygold’s Dubliner but man I can think of some local cheeses that I can’t wait to try in this recipe!).


Add about 4 cubes of cheddar and a spoonful and a half of the sausage mix to a crescent.


**One of my very favorite things about these crescents is that you can add just about anything to change it up a bit. This time I added radicchio that we had from last week’s share! YUM!

Roll up your crescent dough so that it is sealed.

Bake at 350 for ~15-17 minutes until golden brown on top.
