TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound bulk hot Italian sausage
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives

"I don't think the calorie count on these could be correct. Even doubling it for using a bigger muffin cup."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe is tasty. But though it is good, I didn't really think it was worth the extra effort it took to prepare the separate quiches. I'll stick with Bacon Swiss Squares."

"Made in regular muffins tins and got a batch of 16 when I used two cans of crescent dough. I substituted an Italian mix of cheese in the place of Swiss. So good! Will make again!"

"These were definitely a hit at the brunch baby shower today! I could only get around 30 out of the can of crescent rolls which meant I had filling left over. No worries saved the excess filling for us to make a few more for a quick breakfast."

"Another hit for Christmas breakfast, made ahead then froze and taken out of the freezer first thing in the morning and placed in an oven on low, made in regular muffins tins, yum yum, I made it with ricotta."

"I made these for a potluck at work and doubled the recipe. The only change I made was to use ricotta cheese instead of the cottage. Everyone loved them. One word of warning though, since I made so many I had to use both oven racks and unfortunately did not watch them close enough. I ended up burning the entire lower rack, which was not even on the lowest notch. Lesson learned!"

"Sometimes these review things won't let you post without clicking on the stars to rate...this one says "add rating in order to submit". I notice some of you have posted without a rating but it won't allow me to do it. Not sure why. I haven't made these but would do it with mild sausage & don't think I'd like chives. Wondering if Ricotta cheese could replace cottage cheese? Has anyone made these in standard muffin cups instead of mini's and if cooking time is different?"

"I made this recipe as directed and boy, did I like it. It was easy and delish. I'm sure variations of this recipe would be just as good. The crescent roll crust make's preparation a breeze."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 2, 2012

"I thought about the recipe before making these and and others I have eaten in the past and decided to make different types using this resipe. I made this type and also minced ham and brocolli with sharp cheddar, and a vegan one using minced red pepers, brocolli and cauliflower and one using regular ground sausage. I wanted to see which would turn out best so I could make them for a birthday party for my Sister-in-law turning 77 next weekend. They were all great so since there will be about 40 people I'll just make all four. I'm going to make them ahead and freeze them in gallon size freezer bags seperated by wax paper. should work and they will only be frozen for a few days. I should be able to thaw them in the fridge and re-heat in the oven on a baking sheet. The frozen ones I buy work out well and sometimes I just put them in the oven directly from the freezer without thawing. I tracked the cost and found they cost about a third to make versus buying already made. Gonna try gruyere cheese next time also."

"I think they would freeze fine.

MinniesMum - when you remove the casings from the sausage it crumbles like ground beef.  If you were to use a sausage that didn't do that...you'd just dice it up small."

"This is a wonderful and easy recipe, but there was no way I could get 48 rounds cut from one tube of crescent rolls. I only got 24 rounds. So, a note for this recipe, unless you roll the dough paper thin, you need to get 2- 8oz tubes of crescent rolls."
