.:Feature Friday - Restorative Living:.

Go here to enter the Shabby Apple giveaway!

I'm so happy to be guest posting for Summer! I'm Sarah from Restorative Living and I can't wait to share with you one of our family's all-time favorite appetizers, Sausage Crescent Loaves.

While this is an appetizer, you may have trouble moving on to the main course! It's hearty enough that the many boys in our family love it, but light and flaky enough to draw in the gals as well.

Sausage Crescent Loaves
2 cans crescent rolls
1 lb. reduced fat sausage
1- 8oz brick of low-fat cream cheese, softened
1 egg white

You'll see in all of my pictures that I doubled the recipe. It feeds a crowd, but always goes fast so I make a lot!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the sausage and drain. Add warm sausage to large bowl and stir in cream cheese until melted and combined. Of course, if you're like me, you never remember to soften the cream cheese. In that case, leave the sausage in the pan and add the (very cold) cream cheese. This way you can bump the heat on (but keep it on low!) if you need to to give the cream cheese a boost in the melting process.
Eventually, you'll have this. Let it cool completely before you start the next step. I usually put some plastic wrap over top and stick it in the fridge to speed things along.
Spray a cookie sheet and unroll both cans of crescent rolls out flat. Push any seams together that separate. Spread half of the sausage cream cheese mixture the length of each crescent roll sheet. Now fold the crescent rolls sides over on top of itself and the sausage mixture. Press down to seal the edges.

To add a yummy crispness, brush on some egg whites.
Pop them in the oven for 20 minutes and you'll have these lovelies...
Slice them into 1 1/2" slices. You've got a hearty appetizer, finger food, or party dish that feeds and pleases a crowd.
And that's it! An easy go-to party recipe to add to your stash.
