Sausage and Cheese...Yes Please!

If you ever were to stay the night at my house, it is quite likely that you would wake up to the aroma of sausage and cheese. Turkey sausage and reduced-fat Colby-Jack cheese to be exact. I often serve these for breakfast to guests because the preparation only requires about five minutes and they are guaranteed to be devoured. Plus, there is no need for fancy dishes or the dish washing process that follows. Breakfast finger-foods are fun for adults and kids. These little crescent rolls would be great for a casual brunch or tailgate for an early football game. With all the savory flavor, nobody would ever guess that they are the least bit healthy.

Turkey Sausage Breakfast Rolls
serves 4

1 8oz. package  reduced-fat Pilsbury crescent rolls
8 turkey sausage links (Jimmy Dean fully-cooked turkey sausage links)
4 slices reduced-fat Colby-Jack cheese
spicy brown mustard

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll and separate crescent rolls.
  2. Squirt a small amount of spicy brown mustard in the center of each unrolled crescent roll.
  3. Cut slices of cheese in half to create triangular pieces. Place each triangular half on a crescent roll triangle.
  4. Place sausage link at the long end of the crescent roll and roll the roll as you would a plain crescent roll.
  5. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray (easy clean-up)
  6. Place rolls on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
