The Comfort of Food in Cold Weather

The cold season has finally arrived in the South, and I must confess, I’m not a fan of the chilly weather. Though I hail from Vermont and am well-acquainted with real cold, these days, even temperatures in the 20s and 30s seem daunting to me. I’ve become someone who finds 70 degrees to be light sweater weather, and anything below 50 requires a coat – definitely a coat, possibly even a wool one with gloves. Below 30? That’s simply unthinkable now. I often wonder how I ever managed to live comfortably in Vermont, a question my husband frequently echoes.

In such cold times, what’s better than indulging in warm, comforting food? That’s where my go-to dish, the Crescent Sausage Bites, comes in. Made with hot sausage, they are the perfect remedy for the cold. These bites aren’t just for parties; they’re versatile enough for breakfast, brunch, or alongside a warm bowl of veggie soup for dinner. The size of the bites can be adjusted according to the occasion – small squares for parties, larger ones for meals.

Interestingly, these bites have become a favorite for our 7-year-old daughter. Whenever I bring home the ingredients, her excitement is palpable, and she eagerly anticipates the day we’ll have them. Often, the leftovers become her breakfast the next day. She just can’t seem to get enough of them!

Simple Recipe, Big Flavor

The beauty of these Crescent Sausage Bites lies in their simplicity. With just three ingredients, you can whip up a batch in no time. The process is straightforward: fry some sausage, mix it with cream cheese, then layer between crescent roll dough. A quick bake, a slice with a pizza cutter, and voilà – your tasty bites are ready to serve.

These bites have become a staple at parties, especially popular among the men – perhaps the meaty component is the key. The combination of sausage and cream cheese nestled between layers of crescent dough is irresistibly tasty. They’ve become my signature dish for gatherings; friends now expect them at every event!

Prep time


Cooking time






  • 1 pound 1 hot sausage (pork or turkey)

  • 1 package 1 cream cheese (8 ounces)

  • 2 packages 2 crescent rolls

  • A pinch of salt and ground black pepper for seasoning


  • Brown the Sausage: Begin by heating a sauté pan over medium heat. Cook the sausage until it’s thoroughly browned. Once cooked, drain any excess grease. Season the sausage with a dash of salt and black pepper.
  • Combine with Cream Cheese: Lower the heat and add the cream cheese to the pan with the sausage. Stir the mixture until the cream cheese is completely melted and blended with the sausage.
  • Prepare Crescent Roll Base: Preheat your oven to 375℉ (190℃). Take one package of the crescent rolls and unroll it onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Press the seams of the dough gently with your fingers to seal them, creating a uniform base.
  • Add Sausage Mixture: Spread the sausage and cream cheese mixture evenly over the crescent roll dough. Leave a small border (about 1/2 inch) around the edges.
  • Top with Crescent Roll Layer: Unroll the second package of crescent rolls and place it over the sausage mixture. Seal the edges by pressing them together, and do the same with the seams on top.
  • Bake: Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the crescent dough turns a golden brown color.
  • Serve: Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Cut the baked crescent roll into small squares for serving. A pizza cutter is a handy tool for quick and even cutting.


  • Versatile Serving Options: These Crescent Sausage Bites are not only great as party snacks but also pair wonderfully with fresh fruit for a simple breakfast, brunch, or dinner.
  • Ingredient Count Clarification: While the recipe lists four ingredients, salt and pepper are typically not counted in the ingredient total, keeping it a simple 3-ingredient recipe.
  • Sausage Variations: Feel free to use either hot or mild sausage based on your preference. Both yield delicious results.

So, no matter how cold it gets, remember that dishes like these Crescent Sausage Bites can bring warmth and comfort. Whether it’s for a party, a family meal, or just a cozy night in, these little bites are sure to please.
