Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook the first 5 ingredients over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain. Add cream cheese, green onion and parsley; cook and stir over low heat until cheese is melted.
  2. Unroll crescent dough onto a greased baking sheet. Roll into a 12x10-in. rectangle, pressing perforations to seal. Spoon sausage mixture lengthwise down center third of rectangle. On each long side, cut 3/4-in.-wide strips 3 in. into center. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling; seal ends. Brush with egg.
  3. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Refrigerate leftovers.
