Last weekend my husband’s Alma Mater played their football season opening game in Dublin, Ireland. Fun, right?
This means that while the game was a reasonable hour for those that traveled to Ireland, the game time kick-off for those in Atlanta was 7:30 AM. Fun, right?
Luckily our friends hosted a Bloody Mary & Biscuit party to watch the early game. (and who am I kidding, we are up early every day thanks to the Sweets) The hostess had an endless supply of Chick-fil-a biscuits on hand and a Bloody Mary bar set up.
Since I didn’t want to arrive empty handed, I brought a fan fave I used to make when we had season tickets. These Crescent Sausage Squares were always perfect at a morning tailgate for those noon games. Very easy to make before heading out to the tailgate and certain to get gobbled up.
THREE INGREDIENT CRESCENT SAUSAGE SQUARES
- 1 lb. ground sausage (I use the Jimmy Dean HOT sausage to give a little more flavor)
- 1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
- 2 cans Pillsbury crescent rolls
- Soften cream cheese in microwave for 15 seconds.Brown sausage like hamburger meat (drain).
- Roll out one can of crescent rolls for the bottom crust.
- Mix sausage and cream cheese together. Spread mixture onto the bottom crust.
- Use the second can of rolls to make a top layer crust by pinching sides together all the way around so the sausage mixture doesn’t come out.
- Bake at 325°F until golden brown (anywhere from 15-25min). Cut into squares.
These are perfect because they can be served hot or cold. (so…if there are any left after the game they are perfect for snacking on while waiting in post-game traffic…or so I have heard…)
Do you have any go-to tailgate bite recipes? Yay for football season!
