These Cream Cheese Sausage Crescent Roll Ups are so simple to make and one of my family's favorite breakfast recipes. Bold sausage and cream cheese wrapped in a fluffy crescent roll.
You know what they say, Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
I'll admit it's pretty easy to just do a bowl of cereal in the morning especially when we are in a hurry to get out the door.
I try my best though to have a hot breakfast 4-5 times a week. If you want more hot breakfast ideas, then check out my other favorite recipes the entire family loves next.

Cream Cheese Sausage Crescent Roll-Ups Ingredients:
- Cream cheese
- Crescent Rolls
Step One - Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Step Two - Start cooking your sausage.
Step Two continued - Once cooked add cream cheese and mix together until cream cheese is melted.
Step Three - Roll out crescent rolls and place a spoon full of cooked sausage and cream cheese into each roll and roll it up. Place each roll onto a prepared baking sheet.
Step Four - Bake for 10-20 minutes (time will vary depending on the brand you use. See how long your crescents call for and use that temp and time).
Your crescent rolls should be nice and golden brown and cooked all the way though.
Baking Time Tip:
For this recipe, I have a large gap in my baking time. Different brands will call for different oven temperatures and cooking times.
Use my directions as a guide but pay attention to the instructions given on the package of crescent rolls that you buy.
Since your sausage is cooked when you bake the only thing the oven does is cook the crescent rolls.
What should I serve with these Roll-Ups?
I served mine with fruit and coffee for Mama of course!
The cream cheese really helped tame the bold sausage flavor so even my kids loved this breakfast recipe.
Freezing Cream Cheese Sausage Crescent Roll-Ups:
These Cream Cheese Sausage Crescent Roll Ups are so simple to make plus they make the perfect freezer breakfast.
Make a double serving and freeze them for later. Once they are fully cooked allow them to cool completely.
I then allowed them to all freeze on a baking sheet separate this way they don't all freeze in a big clump.
Once they are all frozen separate you can toss them in a big baggy and leave them in the freezer. Pull out one or two and heat them for 1-2 minutes in the microwave.

I really love this recipe, I added a green bell pepper, onion, and shredded cheese. Amazing for dinner!!!!
So glad you liked it!
Thank you the green bell pepper, onion, and shredded cheese was really good
That sounds like a great addition! Glad you liked the recipe.
Can I prep the night before and bake the next morning?
Yes I would prep the filling the night before. Then add to the crescents and bake in the morning.
Can I make them and freeze them then reheat them or can I just freeze raw?
I e been making these for almost 20 years. Definitely a family favorite. Try maple flavored sausage. It’s even better.
We love this one and I will have to try the maple sausage. That sounds awesome.
Do you drain your sausage before adding cream cheese?
Hi Bridgette, yes I like to drain any fat from the sausage before adding the cream cheese, Hope you enjoy the recipe.
I made these to bring to early morning rehearsal at church. I made them tonight cause no time in am. Can I heat the whole thing in oven tomorrow morning at church, or do I need to cut up and have people heat in microwave? Thank you!
Hi Jerilyn, sorry I am just now seeing your comment. You should be able to heat the entire things. Hope they turned out well for you!
I love this! After I browned the sausage and melted the cream cheese, I added freshly chopped jalapeños! It’s just me I cook for so I’ve really enjoyed having these spicy rolls! Took them out once the rolls looked toasted since everything was cooked already. YYYYUUUUMMMMMMMMMYYYYY!!!
Yah! So glad you liked this recipe. Also, I LOVE this idea. I will have to try it with jalapenos asap!
Made these tonight and followed the recipe with 1 little addition...I added a can of green chilies to the sausage and cream cheese mixture. They were amazing!!
So happy to hear that! I will have to try it with the green chilies. I love that ideas, sounds good!!
You can also add a little mint jelly and cheddar to some of them and cheddar and a little brown mustard.
Awesome,we loved them. Followed recipe to the tee. Quick and easy. Next time I'll double it. Yum yum
So happy to hear that Bonnie!! This one is a favorite of mine!
I've been making this for 40 years but I present it a little different. I take the crescent roll dough and divide the can of dough by center perforation then roll out dough into two oblong rectangles, making sure to pinch the perforations together in each rectangle. Then I put half the sausage mixture down the center of each rectangle of dough, bring the sides up and seal at top to make two long logs with the sausage mixture completely enclosed. I flatten the top slightly and shape the logs with my hands so they are even in width and height. Then I brush with egg whites and sprinkle with poppy seeds before baking. I do a lot of entertaining and this is the most requested recipe. So simple and delicious!
I love that idea! Baking it with poppy seeds sounds amazing. Thanks so much for sharing Susie!
What kind of cream cheese and crescent rolls did you use?
Hi Kayla, for this recipe I just used a store brand block of original cream cheese and also the store brand refrigerated crescent rolls.
The timing or oven temp is way off! At 375 degrees, the bottoms were burnt in just 11 minutes. 😟
Oh no Brenda I am so sorry to hear that. The time and temp came from the package of crescent rolls I used. It may be different for different brands and I will make sure to add that into the directions. Thank you so much for letting me know.
