How to Make Sausage Cream Cheese Casserole

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Cook the Sausage and Cream Cheese: In a medium pot over low heat, cook the sausage crumbles with the cream cheese until the cheese is fully melted and combined with the sausage. Stir occasionally to ensure even mixing.
  3. Prepare the Crescent Roll Dough: Unroll one package of crescent roll dough and press it into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pinch the seams together to form a solid layer.
  4. Layer the Sausage Mixture: Spread the sausage and cream cheese mixture evenly over the crescent roll dough.
  5. Top with Crescent Roll Dough: Unroll the second package of crescent roll dough and place it over the sausage mixture. Pinch the seams together and press the edges to seal.
  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 14-16 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the dough is cooked through.
  7. Serve: Let the casserole cool for a few minutes before slicing into squares. Serve warm and enjoy the creamy, savory goodness!

Tips for Success

  • Use Pre-Cooked Sausage: Using pre-cooked sausage crumbles saves time and ensures even cooking.
  • Press the Dough Seams: Make sure to pinch the seams of the crescent roll dough to prevent the filling from leaking out during baking.
  • Customize the Filling: Add shredded cheese, sautéed onions, bell peppers, or other favorite ingredients to the sausage mixture for extra flavor.

Variations

  • Spicy Sausage: Add a kick by using hot Italian sausage or sprinkling in some red pepper flakes.
  • Cheesy Delight: Mix in a cup of shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese with the sausage and cream cheese mixture.
  • Veggie Add-Ins: Enhance the dish by adding sautéed vegetables like bell peppers, spinach, or mushrooms to the filling.
