Turkey Sausage & Cheese in Crescent Rolls for Brunch


Sunday is my favorite day of the week because it gives me a chance to slow down, relax and have a nice brunch with hubby after Church.

Thanks to my partners over at Jennie-O, we received two types of Turkey Sausage in addition to an Oven Ready Turkey.  Can you say, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Using the recipe from their website, I made the Turkey Sausage & Cheese in Crescent Rolls for brunch, however, I used shredded Pepper Jack cheese instead of the recommended Gruyere cheese.



  • 6 ounces JENNIE-O® All Natural* Turkey Sausage
  • 1 cup shredded cheese – I used Pepper Jack
  • 2 (8-ounce) refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten or ¼ cup egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons Poppy Seeds



  1. Cook turkey sausage as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Let stand 10 minutes. In medium bowl, combine sausage and cheese.
  2. Separate dough into 8 triangles.
  3. Spoon 1 tablespoon sausage mixture onto each triangle. Roll up loosely as directed on package. Place on cookie sheet.
  4. In small bowl, whisk together egg and water. Brush egg mixture over crescents. Sprinkle with Poppy Seeds.
  5. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown.


Served with fresh strawberries and a Smoothie.
