2 cans crescent rolls
2 pounds breakfast sausage (not links and any flavor you prefer). I prefer hot sausage.
8 ounces cream cheese
1 stick melted butter
1 Onion chopped (if you want)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is preheating, Melt a tablespoon of butter or margarine in a skillet. Add onion, then saute over medium heat until tender then add and cook the sausage and drain any grease from it. Stir in the cream cheese until melted. Press in the bottom of a 9x13x2 dish with 1 can of the crescent rolls, pressing together to make a crust.
After the sausage is cooked and cream cheese melted, place over the bottom crust. Lay the remaining can of crescent rolls over the top of the meat mixture as close as possible to make a top crust. Drizzle melted butter over the top of the casserole. Bake at 350 degrees until the rolls have turned golden brown. This will be approximately 25-35 minutes.
Serve in squares. Great for breakfast, but this is delicious for any meal of the day. Great served with eggs on the side. :-)
