So as I have mentioned in my introduction, my family has a busy church life. Part of our church life involves attending middle and high school devotionals at least a couple of times per month. At the devotionals, parents usually bring snacks to share with the group. One of my most requested recipes that happens to be one of the easiest ever, is for Spicy Sausage Squares. I got this recipe from a friend where we used to live, who got it from another lady in the church. I first ate it as a breakfast food at a brunch. Regular breakfast sausage was used in place of the hot sausage. I really liked it, but thought it would be great as an appetizer food, so I decided to use the hot sausage. I usually have the ingredients already in my fridge and freezer, so putting it together just takes minutes. I often put it all together the day before and then bake it just before serving.
Spicy Sausage Squares
- 1 pound hot sausage
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- ½ cup water
- 2 (8 ounce) packages of crescent rolls
Preheat your oven to 375 °F.
In a skillet, cook sausage and crumble into small pieces. When it is cooked through, drain excess grease and add cream cheese and water until the cream cheese has melted. The purpose of the water is to thin down the mixture.
Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Roll out one of the packages of crescent rolls in the bottom of the baking dish to make a crust. Spoon the sausage mixture on top of the crescent rolls. Roll out the other package of crescent rolls and place on the top as a crust.
Bake until the top is golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. Cut into squares to serve.
