Sausage cream cheese squares

My sister made these for us one Christmas at her house. We were combining a bunch of appetizers and calling it a meal, but this was the one everyone kept coming back to. So tasty! And they were good hot and after they had cooled down, too, which is a lovely characteristic for an appetizer to have.

Anything else you would add to these? The kick from the Ro*tel is awesome, but I wonder what other flavors might be fun to work in?

Sausage cream cheese squares


  • 1 lb. sausage
  • 1 block cream cheese
  • 1 can Ro*tel, drained
  • 2 cans crescent rolls
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese


  1. Put a frying pan over medium/high heat and brown and crumble sausage; drain any grease

  2. Turn heat down to low and mix in cream cheese till melted

  3. Drain Ro*tel and stir in

  4. Roll out 1 package of crescent rolls flat onto the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Top with cream cheese mixture, sprinkle with cheddar cheese, and top with other package of crescent roll dough

  5. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes

  1. You asked what else might be good? Maybe some Cajun seasoning? I think they sound pretty good the way it is. Or, maybe some bacon bits? Oh Bev stop……

  2. Every single ingredient in this recipe is in my Top 10 favorite things. Believe it or not, I’ve only come to worship Ro*tel within the past year or so. I think I was scared that it had to much heat, but now, especially when it is mixed with sausage and cream cheese, it makes me swoon.
