Jimmy Dean


1 package Regular Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage
1 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1 bunch thinly sliced green onions (about 1 cup)
2 (3-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
Salt and black pepper to taste
3 (8.5-ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1 egg, lightly beaten with 2 teaspoons water


Preheat oven to 375° F. In a large skillet, cook sausage, and mushrooms over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until meat is thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. Remove from heat; allow to cool slightly. Stir in green onions and cream cheese; season to taste with salt and pepper. Unroll both cans of dough; separate crescent rolls into 24 triangles; cut each triangle in half lengthwise to make 48 triangles. Place 2 teaspoons of filling near the wide edge at base of triangle; form into a small log shape. Roll dough and meat towards the point of the triangle, enclosing the filling (filling will be visible at the sides). Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush egg mixture on top of each puff. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Discard any remaining egg mixture.
